CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – Some 2,300 invited guests are expected to attend Billy Graham's funeral today.
Graham's service will be held at the Billy Graham Library. He will be buried beside his late wife, Ruth, whose grave is at the foot of a cross-shaped walkway in the library's Prayer Garden.
While the service is private, it is being made available to audiences across the world.
WBRZ+, the WBRZ local news cable channel, will air the funeral service live beginning at 11 a.m. Baton Rouge time. WBRZ+ can be found on Cox cable channel 11 (HD 1011), Eatel channel 2, with an antenna on 2.2, WBRZ.com and Roku. WBRZ will also stream the funeral live on the WBRZ Channel 2 Facebook page.
The funeral is expected to last 90 minutes.
Graham's association is planning the services, which will be held in a large tent. The tent is a reminder of how the ministry launched – under “The Canvas Cathedral” in 1949 in downtown Los Angeles.
