About Jack Graham

Pastor Jack Graham

For the past 26 years, Dr. Jack Graham has served as pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the nation’s largest, most dynamic congregations with 40,000 members and three locations in North Texas.

Just more than two decades ago, Dr. Graham and his wife, Deb, felt the Lord leading them to take the Gospel message proclaimed from the Prestonwood pulpit beyond the walls of the church. PowerPoint Ministries with Jack Graham started as a vision to reach the lost and the looking throughout the world.

PowerPoint was birthed in 1994 when the Grahams put their faith into action and purchased airtime on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. It has since grown to an expansive network of local, national and international television and radio broadcasts, airing in nearly 100 countries. In fact, Dr. Graham’s passionate, biblical teaching on PowerPoint can be seen or heard by a potential audience of millions of television viewers and radio listeners.

Through broadcasts, online sermons and e-mail messages, he addresses relevant, everyday issues that are prevalent in our culture and that strike a chord with audiences worldwide. For some, it may be the first time to hear the life-transforming message of the Gospel; for others, it is the shot in the arm needed to bolster their own ministry; and yet for others, it is a message that leads them back into the arms of their Savior.

Dr. Graham recently served as Honorary Chairman of the 2015 National Day of Prayer and he has served as President of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant denomination in the country with 16 million members.

He is a noted author of numerous books, including Man of God, Are You Fit for Life? Powering Up, Unseen, and Lord, Hear Our Cry. Another book, Courageous Parenting, is co-authored by his wife, Deb, and based on their experiences as parents.

Dr. Graham was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1970, and has a master of divinity degree with honors and a doctor of ministry degree in Church and Proclamation from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

He and Deb have three married children and six grandchildren.
