In his autobiography Just As I Am, Billy Graham wrote about Cliff Barrows’ “uncanny ability” to lead a choir of thousands of voices or an audience of a hundred thousand voices. “But all of that talent is not the secret of Cliff’s effectiveness,” he wrote. “It is his humility and his willingness to be a servant, which spring from his devotional life and his daily walk with Christ.”
