You’d be hard pressed to find someone more influential in the Christian world than Rev. Billy Graham. He’s led millions to Jesus, advised multiple presidents, and has a longevity in ministry that spans 70 years and counting.
But his legacy is bigger than that. It’s also been passed down in his children – and their children.
Recently I had the opportunity to meet Will Graham (Franklin’s son and Billy’s Grandson) on the set of the upcoming film, Unbroken: Path to Redemption, which is a continuation of the Louis Zamperini story first brought to the screen by Angelina Jolie. In the film, Will plays his own grandfather, Billy, in 1949 as he preaches at the famous Los Angeles tent meeting where Louis finds Jesus.
I was on set when they filmed the tent scene and the atmosphere was just surreal, especially considering this isn’t some small, low budget Christian film. This is Universal bringing Louis’ real life story to the big screen. But I digress…
After meeting Will his team informed me that they were going to be holding a crusade in Ft. Wayne, Indiana the next week and they invited me over to spend some time with them and to interview Will for my podcast, The Lucas Miles Show.
And so I did. We talked Jesus, growing up a Graham, his transition into ministry, his love for aviation and more. I enjoyed every second of our time together and I know you will too.
And with that…here is my conversation with Will Graham.

For years, Kenya, historically one of the strongest economic centers in Africa, has battled the rise of terror groups, such as ISIS and Al-Shabab, the difficulty of securing their northern border with Somalia, as well as meeting the needs of high volumes of displaced people groups throughout the country. Having spent collectively more than several months in Kenya over the past decade, I’ve had the opportunity to witness firsthand many of the challenges facing Kenya through my work with The Oasis Network For Churches.
This week, the conservative news outlet, Faithwire, released a shocking video from one of my recent trips to Kenya in which I interview a high ranking Kenyan national security officer regarding border safety under the Trump administration. The story, which can be found HERE, picked up massive national reach after being tweeted by Tomi Lahren, a leading conservative commentator and Trump supporter.
“Actually in Kenya we say that, ‘Trump is God’s chosen.’ Because by him being there so many things to do with terrorism and the spirit behind the Islam has been restricted.” -Officer Harrison Gnota
The original interview, which was recorded as part of filming of Miles Away, a new reality documentary that follows my work with The Oasis Network can be found here:

As real estate moguls, reality show stars, former pro baseball players, and authors, twins David and Jason Benham know something about accomplishing dreams and fulfilling the call of God on one’s life. Recently I had the chance to sit down with the Benham brothers to discuss how they built their real estate empire, their former show on HGTV, wisdom they gleaned from Phil Robertson, as well as their special connection to Vice President Mike Pence.
