What God Did in 2022 and What’s Next

by Greg Laurie on Dec 21, 2022

At the end of each year I like to sit with the Lord and reflect on all of the ways He has answered my prayers and worked in my life. When I think about all this, a word comes to mind: revival.

How God Moved in 2022

Throughout the year, God has opened so many doors for Harvest to spread the Gospel. 

We saw Angel Stadium filled with over 51,000 people—8,667 of them making professions of faith at the Harvest Crusade. We were able to offer translation in multiple languages and share the event through live streaming, radio, and social media. Over 161,000 people from around the world joined live.

The next month, He used our film, Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon, to share a relatable story about the road to redemption. It was put on the big screen in over 1,000 theaters nationwide and touched so many lives.  

One person from Ohio commented on my social media, saying that the man sitting next to him in the theater prayed out loud when I led the viewers in a sinner’s prayer at the end of the film.

This is what Harvest Ministries is about: Knowing God, and making Him known. I’m looking forward to what He has in store for us in 2023. 

What’s Next

Next year comes our other film, Jesus Revolution, which tells my own story and focuses on the 1970s period of spiritual revival—otherwise known as the Jesus Revolution/Movement

God clearly isn’t finished yet. He’ll continue using Harvest—and the generosity of friends like you who make all these opportunities possible—to bring light to darkness, to share hope with a hopeless world, and to bring lost sheep back into the fold.

A woman named Sally shared this with me:

My life and my choices used to be a mess, but I did a ‘180’ in 1996 and followed Who I knew to be God all along—I had just never listened to Him before.
 
As my conviction grew, I decided to rededicate myself to God in 2019. Harvest’s messages mean so much to me. They inspire, convict, and uplift all at the same time. I use what I learn so much in my daily walk, my work, and encounters with everyone I meet.
 
Your messages have really lifted me to a higher level on my road and growth in Christ, and I thank you!

Here at Harvest Ministries, we’re committed to the cause of proclaiming the gospel to as many people as we can. Will you consider standing with us through your prayers and generosity? This is a mission worth supporting.
