Harvest Crusades With Greg Laurie Will Return to Angel Stadium of Anaheim, August 23 – 25
Riverside, Calif., May 15, 2013—Marking 24 years of evangelistic outreach, Southern California pastor and evangelist Greg Laurie will bring his large-scale Harvest Crusade events back to Orange County, Calif. this summer with a three night visit to Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Aug. 23 – 25. Called the "Southern California Harvest," each night of the outreach will feature a straight-forward message of faith from Laurie and music from top Christian recording artists.
In addition to the Southern California Harvest, in 2013 Harvest with Greg Laurie will also host the Philadelphia Harvest at the Wells Fargo Center (September 28 – 29), which will be simulcast to thousands of locations nationwide for a coast-to-coast evangelistic outreach called Harvest America. The inaugural Harvest America program was simulcast from Angel Stadium in 2012 and drew more than 450,000 participants, making it one of the largest evangelistic outreaches in U.S. history.
The Harvest with Greg Laurie events are known for relating to audiences through contemporary means like top notch music, live Internet webcasts and hosted video podcasts, but the crux of each event is the nightly message presented by Greg Laurie. Called the "evangelist of the future" by Billy Graham, Laurie draws on Scripture, flavored with personal and cultural examples, to describe the relevance of faith in today's world. Laurie's talks encompass topics that appeal to people of any age and answer questions like: Why am I here? Is God real? What happens when I die?
The 2013 Southern California Harvest will be broadcast live via the Internet at www.harvest.org. Video podcasts and blog accounts of each message will also be made available at http://blog.greglaurie.com/, as well as "behind the scenes" updates from Greg Laurie on Twitter at http://twitter.com/greglaurie.
Greg Laurie, who founded the evangelistic Harvest Crusade events in 1990, also serves as senior pastor of one of the largest churches in the U.S., Harvest Christian Fellowship, which has campuses in Riverside and Irvine, Calif. During the past 24 years, the Harvest Crusades have drawn some 4.7 million people to events in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Laurie also serves on the board of directors for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
