Meet the Team: Walter Smyth

November 8, 2019

Walter Smyth played several different roles in the BGEA over the years. When Billy Graham Films was started, Billy Graham asked Walter if he would lead the distribution department in Washington, D.C. Later, Walter became the Crusade director and then the international director.

In his autobiography, Just As I Am, Billy Graham writes of Walter Smyth, “Since his retirement, he has been one of the people I have missed the most. I can’t put into words all that he has meant to me both personally and in the ministry.”

This month’s archive feature is the nameplate used by Walter Smyth at Amsterdam 83, also known as the Conference for Itinerant Evangelists. This was the first of three such conferences which invited evangelists from around the world to come to Amsterdam for fellowship and training.
