Commencement Program From Florida Bible Institute

May 1, 2015

Billy Graham graduated from Florida Bible Institute 75 years ago, on Monday, May 13, 1940. This program features the order of service from the commencement exercises. Billy’s father, Frank Graham, made notes on the program.

In his autobiography Just As I Am, Billy Graham described his time at Florida Bible Institute:

“So many of the questions that I had to keep bottled up previously could now be freely aired and wisely answered. I could stretch my mind without feeling that I was doing violence to my soul. The faculty’s openness … instilled in me a fresh enthusiasm for the Lord and a burst of energy to get involved in His work.”
