Adventist World — In honor of Billy Graham’s passing, General Conference officials have modified a contest among world leaders of the Adventist denomination. The leaders were originally racing to grow the largest beard ahead of an Adventist history-themed Annual Council 2018 slated to take place in Battle Creek, Michigan. The leaders are now racing to grow out their eyebrows in remembrance of veteran evangelist Billy Graham who passed away today.
“From his simple, compelling messages to his sincerity and utterly compelling altar calls there’s little doubt that Billy Graham will be remembered as the greatest evangelist of the 20th century,” said a statement from the General Conference Department of Admissions. “And his eyebrows were absolutely arresting.”
The GC has launched a competition for the church leader who can grow the fullest set of eyebrows by Annual Council 2018.
The winner of the Billy Graham Bushy Brow competition will be awarded an honorary doctorate in homiletics from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University.
