Contact: Erik Ogren, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, 704-401-2117 eogren@bgea.org

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 20, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) has debuted a new podcast titled GPS: God. People. Stories. The free and easily-downloadable offering will feature in-depth stories showing how God is at work in individuals who, in turn, impact others and the world. The podcasts will also feature select audio from Billy Graham and Franklin Graham.

A new episode of GPS will be released every week. The first episodes – which are available now – highlight people who have recently figured prominently in the news: Ebola survivor Dr. Kent Brantly and his wife Amber; and Naghmeh Abedini, whose husband Saeed is imprisoned in an Iranian jail for his beliefs. 

"Radio has been foundational in the development and reach of this organization," said Jim Kirkland, the BGEA's Director of Audio Media Services. “Today, content is expected to be available on digital platforms. At the receiving end are an untold number of people who are seeking the hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ."

Kirkland continued, "GPS is an extension of the BGEA's mission to use every technological means available to reach as many people as possible with the Gospel."

The podcast joins a stable of audio offerings from the BGEA, including Hour of Decision Online and Decision Minute, and an archive of over 1,600 sermons, messages, and comments spanning seven decades.

GPS is available for download through both iTunes and Stitcher, and can also be streamed directly from the BGEA's website at www.BillyGrahamRadio.org. Listeners can also follow www.Facebook.com/BillyGrahamRadio for regular updates and programs.
