It will be no surprise to many that Billy Graham heads the roll at number one.
The article says of Graham: "Rev. Graham has slowed down in his active ministry—he will turn 100 next November—but he's built a legacy as the greatest preacher of the Gospel America has ever known. Graham has preached the Gospel to nearly 215 million people in stadiums around the world and led more than 3.2 million people to Christ at his Crusades over the years. But his influence is felt beyond the call of invitation as well. Graham opposed racial segregation in the 1950s, integrated his services, and worked to dismantle the black and white divide in America's church. He advised U.S. presidents on spiritual matters over the course of five decades."
Billy Graham is followed at second by his son, Franklin Graham.
Many of the other names in this inventory will be familiar to Believers, such as Vice President Mike Pence, at #9; Sarah Palin, at #11; T.D. Jakes at #14; at #18, Dr. James Dobson; Dr. Alveda King at #19; and Paula White rounding out the top 20.
