Year 29

I am happy to announce that the 29th annual SoCal Harvest is returning to Angel Stadium.
There is nobody more surprised than I am to think of us making 29 consecutive trips to Orange County for community-wide outreach crusades, where literally thousands of people, of all ages, have made professions of faith.
As our country and society continue to be so divided, the gospel and a spiritual revival are our only real solution.
In 1972, with our country in a similar stressful condition, a beacon of hope ended up being Explo '72. Eighty thousand college and high school students filled the Cotton Bowl in Dallas to hear Billy Graham. It was the apex and most visible event of the Jesus Movement and created an explosion of personal evangelism and an ongoing wave of Christian service.
It was a Jesus Revolution . . .
In 1970, as a result of the Jesus Movement, I, as a 17-year-old hippie and drug user from a broken home, heard the message of the gospel and became a Christian. Just as Explo ’72 brought the light of the gospel to a dark time in our nation and energized a generation for God, our prayer is that He will use this year’s SoCal Harvest to launch a revolution that will bring light to a world that is increasingly dark and energize a new generation of Christians to courageously share their faith in Jesus.
Would your church consider joining us?
Greg Laurie Senior Pastor

What is SoCal Harvest?

SoCal Harvest is a free, three-night event at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California on August 17–19, 2018. In its 29th year, the event will feature music from top Christian artists, plus a gospel message by Greg Laurie.

Harvest events are designed to be opportunities for Christians to invite family members, coworkers, friends, and acquaintances to hear the life-changing message of the gospel in an environment that is entertaining and non-threatening. More than 9.4 million people have participated in Harvest events in person or online since 1990, with 520,183 of them making professions of faith.
