Graham accepted Christ as his saviour in 1999 – an event that transformed his own life, his family
and his business.
In 2001 Graham was the visionary leader who initiated a gathering in Cape Town that saw 45 000
Christians fill Newlands Stadium to pray for the needs of their nation. Today this movement has
become the largest prayer gathering in recorded history, where people from every country in the
world participate annually in the Global Day of Prayer on Pentecost Sunday. It is estimated that over
400 million people participated in the year 2010. Please visit www.globaldayofprayer.com for more
Graham is also the founder of the Unashamedly Ethical Campaign. This campaign promotes values,
ethics and clean living across all sectors of society. This campaign is currently sweeping South Africa,
Africa and across the Globe and is bringing about a tangible change to the lives of individuals, and
even whole companies. Please visit www.unashamedlyethical.com for more information.
Graham is 57 years old and has been married to his wife, Lauren, for 34 years. They have three
children and four grandchildren, all of whom live in Somerset West, South Africa.
Along with Diane Vermooten, Graham is the author, of the book Not by Might, Nor by Power. This
book tells the remarkable story of the growth of the Global Day of Prayer and the birth of
Unashamedly Ethical. It is a gripping and inspiring testimony of God’s power in response to
obedience and faith!
In a second book; Transform Your Work Life, Graham and Dion Forster share testimony and teaching
on what God has done with them and what God wants to do with and through Christians in the
Your work life is one of the most accessible and significant mission fields in the world. Graham and
Dion offer some truly practical, sometimes challenging, hopefully inspiring insights into the tools and
processes that you can use to transform your ordinary day into an extraordinary calling and by doing
so transform your work life.
Graham is the first to say that God deserves all the Glory and the Honour for this miraculous work!
Truly, the stories of the Global Day of Prayer and Unashamedly Ethical are not the stories of one
man’s determination, neither are they stories about mighty global organizations, rather, they are a
testimony to God’s Power and Grace!
A few personal awards for Graham include: Junior and Businessman awards in Johannesburg and
Cape Town (1990, 2002 and 2005), City of Cape Town Civic Award for Social Affairs and Services
