is 45 years old is married and has one daughter. He is
an ordained minister with the Pentecostal Assemblies and
operates a soup kitchen on skid row in a major city. He does
some construction work on the side in the summer time. He
experienced an abortion in his life 25 years ago when he allowed
his girlfriend to abort their child without resistance. The

lead him to follow his God into the ministry. He enjoys going on
hikes with his daughter who is four years old.
Graham is 61 years old, twice married, and lives
near Portland, Oregon.
More than 30 years ago, he did not stop the abortion
that cost him his only biological child and eventually the

Through God's Grace and Love, Graham was led, in mid-2006,
to Calvary Chapel, a non-denominational Christian
fellowship, where a series of events began that led him to a
Rachel's Vineyard retreat in 2007 where his healing journey
began in earnest.
Since that retreat, Graham has been active with the
Oregon Rachel's Vineyard team, and has participated in
several radio and television interviews discussing the
importance of a man's acknowledgement of his abortion and
the necessity for healing the grief and other emotions that
linger long after the event.
