Franklin Graham recently held the largest evangelistic event Belfast, Northern Ireland has seen in nearly 50 years. 

More than 32,000 people filled the Odyssey Arena during the three-day gospel festival, that included dance ministry and contemporary music.

The Christian Post reports that the city's churches haven't seen crowds that big since Franklin's father, Billy Graham, preached there in 1961.

The festival was hosted by 386 Belfast churches and Graham's message of repentance.

"There are many of you here are guilty of sexual sins.," he said. "But I'm here tonight to tell you that God will forgive you, and he'll cleanse you, and he can set you free tonight if you're willing to come to him by faith, trusting in his son Jesus Christ."

About 2,500 people came to the altar to dedicate their lives to Christ during the festival.
