SoCal Harvest Crusade Expects Thousands

Thousands are expected to fill the Angel Stadium in Anaheim for a night of music and faith at this year’s 28th annual Harvest Crusade. SoCal Harvest is a free, three-night event held August 18–20, 2017 featuring music from top Christian artists, plus a gospel message by Greg Laurie.

Pastor Greg will answer some of life’s most important questions, such as, “What is the meaning of life?” and “What happens when we die?”

The Rev. Greg Laurie, 64, senior pastor and founder of Riverside’s Harvest Christian Fellowship began holding large-scale public evangelistic events called Harvest Crusades in 1990. Harvest has hosted the evangelistic outreaches throughout the United States and in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

In person attendance and live webcast views for these events total more than 8.6 million, with 496,573 people deciding to make a profession of faith in Jesus Christ. Using technology, viewers around the world can connect via live webcasts, apps, podcasts, and social media in addition to radio and TV broadcasts.

The Harvest Crusades are designed for Christians to invite others to hear the Gospel message. Typically, the events begin with contemporary worship music followed by guest appearances from popular Christian artists. This year will feature Brennley Brown, from the hit TV show The Voice, David Crowder, Jeremy Camp, American Idol’s Jordin Sparks, Phil Wickham, Danny Gokey, Andy Mineo, and Lecrae.

After the music, Pastor Laurie will present a life-saving, evangelistic message from the Bible.

Last year’s total attendance in person and online was 161,230 with 11,994 decisions made for Christ.
