It’s Never Too Late to Come to Christ!

by Greg Laurie on Sep 4, 2015

Here’s a classic story from one of our follow-up counselors, Janet:


This is Shannon from Long Beach. He is 70 years old, and 2015 was his first time at SoCal Harvest. When the ushers shifted our row, he ended up sitting right next to me. As a follow-up counselor, I had my stack of Bibles. Shannon was very aware and interested.

He told me that at age 15 he remembers hearing about Jesus, but no one ever explained to him what salvation meant. I shared with him [Pastor Greg’s] notes that were in the front of the Start! Bible and instructed him to read the Book of John so he could learn about the life of Jesus.

When Pastor Greg gave the invitation, I made my way down to the field. To my surprise, Shannon was hot on my heels all the way down to the field, where he stood near me. I could hear him pray the salvation prayer out loud. I was so thankful that Shannon became a child of God! To God be the glory!
