2014 SoCal Harvest

Musicians and Guests

  • Michael Franzese
    Formerly a high-ranking member of one of New York's most violent and ruthless crime families, at one time, Michael was generating $5–8 million per week through legal and illegal channels in order to fund the criminal activities of the mob. He was so notorious, 14 different law enforcement agencies banded together in an attempt to bring him down, and eventually they succeeded.
    Caught, tried, and imprisoned, his lowest moment came in his prison cell when he realized he had lost everything, including his wife, his children, and his freedom. It was then that a guard pushed a Bible through the slot in his cell door, and Michael began to examine the character and the claims of Christ.

    Today Michael is telling people his story as a bridge to God's story. His message? No one is so bad that they are beyond Gods reach.
