The video, which is available to watch online at BillyGraham.org, features the 3 defining moment testimonies of NFL player David Tyree, Illusionist Jim Munroe and singer/songwriter Lacey Sturm.
During the 30-minute video, which is presented in culturally relevant way, each person shares their story of redemption. Toward the conclusion of the video, Graham himself outlines every person's need of salvation, and explains the Gospel, ending with an opportunity to receive God's saving gift through Jesus Christ.
The video released on Monday is just the first of many different installments of the My Hope program series, according to a report by the Christian Post. The evangelism outreach will continue through the year in North America, presented by BGEA, and will incorporate the help of churches, pastors and everyday Believers interacting with and reaching out to their neighbors with the hope of the Gospel.

The My Hope initiative has already taken place in 57 countries, with some 10 million people worldwide making decisions to "surrender their lives to Jesus Christ."
"This program is put together in a way that people are finding very compelling," noted My Hope America vice president Preston Parrish. "It really strikes home in people's hearts because everybody if they themselves are not struggling with the issues of meaning and purpose and forgiveness and hope that are raised in 'Defining Moments,' everybody knows a family member, a neighbor, a co-worker, or somebody that they encounter in a daily way who is."
