Charlotte, N.C., couple Richard and Deborah Rosser hosted a My Hope gathering outside in a tent, reminiscent of Billy Graham’s early years of preaching. An 8-year-old boy prayed to receive Christ, and an older man rededicated his life to Jesus.

A number of prisons around the United States showed the My Hope programs, including High Point Detention Center in North Carolina, where 296 prisoners watched the videos over the course of three nights. In all, 31 prisoners in High Point made first-time decisions for Christ, and 47 rededicated their lives to Jesus.

Believers from more than 28,000 churches in North America registered to participate in My Hope by opening up their homes to friends, family and neighbors who didn’t previously have relationships with Jesus.

After showing a My Hope video, believers hosting friends and family were encouraged to share their personal testimonies in three minutes or less.

Each night, as “The Cross” aired on various television stations across North America, 40 response centers were open, with volunteers from BGEA, Focus on the Family, Liberty University and the Southern Baptist Convention’s North American Mission Board taking calls from viewers. Many callers made decisions for Christ, including a 12-year old boy named Jaden from Marion, Ohio. Jaden’s father is serving a 21-year prison sentence. Jaden made a decision for Christ after watching “The Cross” on TV and calling into BGEA.

While many believers held My Hope gatherings at their homes, others held events at churches, community centers and on college campuses.

About 70 people attended the regular Friday night service at The Rock Church in Provo, Utah, and among the handful of new visitors, two people prayed to receive Jesus Christ as Savior after watching “The Cross.”

My Hope places a strong emphasis on follow-up. New believers are encouraged to attend church or begin Bible studies with the people who invited them to watch the My Hope programs. When people accept Christ over the phone, BGEA sends them materials in the mail to help in their new walk with God.

Former pro skateboarder Brian Sumner, featured in the My Hope video “Lose to Gain,” was also the “Matthew” host at Soul Ride Skatepark in Concord, N.C., where more than a dozen skateboarders responded to Sumner’s invitation to follow Christ.

Two people responded to invitations to receive Christ at Felicitas’ gathering, including one rededication. Felicitas, who is part of the Hispanic congregation at Shadow Mountain Community Church, said numerous other people told her afterward that they were stirred to consider the Lord in a much deeper way than ever before.

Will Graham, vice president of the BGEA and grandson of Billy Graham, preached at Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga., wrapping up a weekend of My Hope events. Known for its faith-based movies, Sherwood was one of the biggest supporters of My Hope, spending a good chunk of the year training members to be “Matthew” hosts and share their faith through relationship evangelism. The church saw 76 salvations as a result.
