Every year, Pastor Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries host the annual “Harvest Crusade,” a free event with live music and speakers. The autumn event in Southern California is typically held at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. They also hold events in Chicago, New Zealand and Seattle.
Each year, thousands of people come to know the Lord and it is an amazing experience. Last year, they broadcast the event online and many decided to follow Christ after watching.
Since 1990, Harvest Ministries has reached over 4 million people with the annual Harvest Crusades. There have been more than 400,000 people who have come to the Christian faith. Powerful, right?!
This year, Laurie and Harvest Ministries decided to do something even more impactful–they are calling the event “Harvest America.” The purpose is “One day, one church, one message.” This year, it will broadcast from the Anaheim Angel Stadium on August 26, 2012. The crusade will be happening August 25, for those who want to attend in person.
This is a call for those who know non-believers and who want to share the good news with their friends, families and coworkers. The event will be broadcast live all throughout the United States and people are preparing early to spread the news.
You can host your own Harvest gathering at your home and set up the live streaming from your place, or you can go to a church and watch it there. People all over America will participate and are praying it will move our nation spiritually.
The Harvest America site explains how you can be a host. Its mission is:
…all about joining together to reach millions of people across the nation with a straightforward proclamation of the gospel. By partnering with hundreds of simulcast host locations on a single night—August 26, 2012—we expect to see thousands of lives changed by Jesus Christ (HarvestAmerica.com).
If you can’t hold a gathering at your home, maybe you can pray or ask your family to tune in. Also pray for the hearts of the people who will receive the message. Pray for the Harvest team that they are able to put the event together smoothly with no issues or difficulties.
Let us pray for our country and for spiritual awakening and restoration. Pray for the lost souls and for those who have not yet received Christ as their Lord and Savior.
