2022 Boise Harvest: A Weekend of Transformation

by Harvest on Apr 26, 2022

What a powerful weekend!

The 2022 Boise Harvest at ExtraMile Arena was a long-awaited two days of hope and transformation, as so many found hope and experienced the transformation that Jesus Christ brings.

Pastor Greg Laurie was joined by amazing artists Chris Tomlin, Jeremy Camp, Andy Mineo, as well as Jordan Feliz, and shared a message of hope to a packed stadium—resulting in a packed floor as thousands of people made professions of faith to follow Christ.

Thanks to God, we saw 21,500 in-person attendees, along with 144,013 joining online. And when Pastor Greg gave the invitation to commit to Christ, over 3,000 people responded.

After two years of COVID-related delays, so many in the Boise, Idaho area refused to give up, choosing to support and pray for the outreach and mission of the Boise Harvest—and we’re so glad they did.

Alana, one of the Sunday attendees, stated what this event meant for Boise.

Especially with what’s going on around the world, this was so needed. And I just couldn’t believe the amount of people that were here and that came down here to get saved last night and tonight. It’s just a miracle.

‘God Is So Good’

Having presented the answers to common questions we all have about life in a message titled “What You’re Really Looking For” on the first night, Pastor Greg completed the weekend with a message titled “Don’t Be Afraid.”

On Saturday night, Pastor Greg reminded everyone what these outreaches are about: “This is not about religion; this is about having your life transformed by Jesus Christ.”

Many people heard this message loud and clear.

At the end of both nights, Pastor Greg invited attendees to make a public profession of faith as Harvest Worship played music. Thousands of people accepted the invitation and made their way toward the stage to commit or recommit their lives to Jesus. They were met by local pastors and volunteers who guided them in prayer and invited them to a local church community.

Aubrey, who attended with her mother, was among the many who were touched by Pastor Greg’s words.

Whenever he said are you sure you’re going to go to Heaven, I wasn’t sure. I mean, I believe in Jesus, but I didn’t know for sure. And it’s just kind of been in the back of my mind lately, and he gave me an opportunity and I was like, I should take it… I’m stoked, I’m really happy.

For Aubrey’s mom, it was the sign of a faithful God: “I’m overwhelmed. It’s just an answer to my prayer. Before it started, I prayed… God is so good.”

What’s Next?

After a two-year wait, so many got to experience the Boise Harvest, filling the arena with excitement and an underlying sentiment that it was about time. The efforts of each ministry involved were finally coming to fruition—but God’s not done.

If you missed the Boise Harvest or want to experience it again, get ready for an encore! Not only will the Boise Harvest be available for streaming soon; it will also be broadcast on local TV in the Treasure Valley area. Click here for more information on all future airings.

Pastor Greg is also planning to release three films in the next year. First, Fame, an evangelistic film featuring interviews with Alice Cooper and Darryl Strawberry, is set to be released in 2022. Second, Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon, based on Pastor Greg’s biography of the same title, is set for release in Fall 2022. Lastly, Jesus Revolution, a feature film starring Kelsey Grammer, Jonathan Roumie, Anna Grace Barlow, and Joel Courtney, depicting the spiritual revival of the 1960s and ‘70s, is planned to hit theaters Spring of 2023.
