#HarvestSoCal 2019 is in the Books – WOW!

This was my Facebook post Sunday night after watching HarvestSoCal2019:

Tonight’s #HarvestSoCal has been amazing! Wonderful music by @philwickham @newsboys and @christomlin – the powerful message from @greglaurie was simple and so enlightening, but the highlight was the THOUSANDS who just gave their lives to Jesus.

“I keep doing these crusades year after year because I want to take as many people with me to Heaven as I possibly can.”

Greg Laurie

Harvest 2019

100,000 attend California crusade focused on God and country

Thousands of people chose to give their lives to Jesus this weekend at an Anaheim, Calif. crusade in Angel Stadium that honored God and country.

At the conclusion of each night of the SoCal Harvest event held Aug. 23-25 that saw over 100,000 people attend, Pastor Greg Laurie delivered a message called “Happiness, hope, and heaven.”

He shared the gospel, similar to what Evangelist Billy Graham, who called Laurie the “evangelist of the future,” did for so many years.

“Don’t put your hope in technology. Don’t put your hope in material things. Don’t put your hope in politicians. Don’t put your hope even in religion,” Laurie, senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship of California and Hawaii, he told the crowd each night of the three-day event. “Hope has a name, and it’s Jesus Christ, and he is here with us tonight, and he is ready to change the course of your life.”

With fireworks in the evening sky, the baseball stadium’s scoreboards lit up with the words: “Welcome to the family of God.”

More than 8,000 people made the decision to follow Jesus, bringing the grand total to half a million since the first one held in 1990.

On the first night, followers held a military appreciation ceremony and unfurled a massive American flag across the outfield as Brennley Brown, a finalist on “The Voice,” sang “God Bless America.” Former Navy SEAL and actor Remi Adeleke offered an opening prayer.

Throughout the crusade, attendees worshipped with Jeremy Camp, Chris Tomlin, Newsboys, Lecrae and Phil Wickham, to name a few.

The 30th annual SoCal Harvest Crusade was the kick-off event of Harvest’s 2020 Vision to launch a “Jesus Revolution” through crusades in southern California and Boise, Idaho. The tour is to end with a crusade in 2021 at Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park, currently under construction. The Harvest team has aimed to reach over 1 million people and see 100,000 professions of faith through the crusades.

“I keep doing these crusades year after year because I want to take as many people with me to Heaven as I possibly can,” Laurie said.

So Cal Harvest – 2018 Is This Weekend

You may have read about the controversy involving billboards for this event being removed because of complaints about Pastor Greg Laurie holding a Bible on the billboard. I’ve got to say, Pastor Laurie handled the situation in such a Christ-like manner. Here is the picture of the “offensive” billboard and that is followed by the information about this weekend’s huge event.

Not even 20 years into the 21st century, it seems like time is speeding up and global events happening one on top of the other. Could it be a sign of the end times?

Pastor Greg Laurie Given A Huge Honor

Greg Laurie to Receive 2018 NRB Billy Graham Award

NASHVILLE (NRB) – Greg Laurie, one of America’s foremost evangelists, will be honored with National Religious Broadcasters’ Billy Graham Award for Excellence in Christian Communications on Friday, March 2, during the Awards Gala at Proclaim 18, the NRB International Media Convention in Nashville, Tennessee.

Laurie will receive the award named for the famed evangelist on the same day as the private funeral service for Graham in Charlotte, which Laurie will attend.

“In God’s providence, the NRB Executive Committee chose Greg Laurie to receive this year’s Billy Graham Award weeks ago, before it would be known that the honor would be bestowed on him on the very day of the great evangelist’s funeral,” said Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, NRB’s President & CEO. “While the world mourns the loss of Dr. Graham, we see in the life of Greg Laurie another evangelist faithful to preach the Gospel to all the world who is an innovator in communicating God’s Word, following in Dr. Graham pacesetting communications footsteps.”

Dr. Billy Graham, the world-renowned evangelist who passed away on February 21, was a pioneer in Christian broadcasting. Graham exemplified a commitment to excellence, creativity, and biblical fidelity in his use of electronic communications in furtherance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The NRB Billy Graham Award is presented to those who effectively and creatively use multiple electronic media technologies in fulfillment of their mission, while maintaining fidelity to the message of love, redemption, and hope found in the Holy Scriptures.

“I am honored to receive this award,” says Laurie. “Not only was Billy Graham the greatest evangelist who ever lived, he also was an innovator in all media platforms. Our hope at Harvest Ministries is, in our own way, to follow that example and reach as many people as possible with the Gospel in our generation, as Billy did in his.”

Laurie is the senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship, which has campuses in California and Hawaii. He has authored over 70 books, including Steve McQueen: The Salvation of an American IconTell SomeoneHope for Hurting Hearts, and his autobiography, Lost Boy. Laurie’s book on McQueen is the basis for the movie, Steve McQueen: American Icon. Host of the nationally syndicated radio program A New Beginning and television program GregLaurie.tv, Laurie is also the founder and featured speaker for Harvest Crusades and Harvest America—large-scale evangelistic outreaches. The 2018 Harvest America event will take place on June 10, emanating nationwide from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Laurie’s attendance at the Graham funeral will prevent him from receiving the award in person at the Awards Gala. Instead, a video message from Laurie will be shown.

The Billy Graham Award for Excellence in Christian Communications will be presented during Proclaim 18, which takes place February 27-March 2, 2018, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville.

Releasing on DVD February 20th – Steve McQueen: American Icon

The specially priced DVD will be available in stores on February 20. Preorder now through Walmart or Amazon. Every DVD purchased puts a Bible in the hands of a new believer!

Steve McQueen truly is an American Icon. One of America’s most endearing and intriguing movie stars, he “is still the King of Cool” according to EsquireMagazine—50 years after the zenith of his career! The coolest thing about him, however, is barely known, despite countless biographies and articles.

Steve McQueen was a believer in Jesus Christ.

On the surface McQueen had everything he could want—fame, cars, homes, more money than he could spend in a lifetime. An avid fan of the actor (and owner of a replica of McQueen’s car in the classic film Bullitt), Pastor Greg Laurie hits the road in his mint Mustang, traveling the country in search of the true, untold story of McQueen’s redemption-filled final chapters.

Narrated by Gary Sinise, interviews include:

  • Barbara Minty McQueen, his widow
  • Academy Award®-winning director Mel Gibson
  • Renown stuntman Stan Barrett
  • Celebrated McQueen biographer Marshall Terrill
  • Actors Barbara Leigh and Mel Novak
