Harvest Ministries has launched a new app developed specifically for the Apple Watch to help connect people to the growing ministry led by Harvest Christian Fellowship Senior Pastor Greg Laurie.
“Harvest takes very seriously the role of using the influence and resources that God has given us to help make God known to as many people as possible,” reported Paul Eaton, Administrative Pastor for Harvest Ministries, in an announcement last month.
“We have always had a desire to invest in new technologies that help us distribute Harvest content and Greg Laurie’s messages in new ways,” he continued. “This includes the iOS, Android, and Windows phone apps, as well as our Roku app that are all being used by thousands of people each week to hear the Gospel. This Apple Watch app creates one more way for people to connect with Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries.”
The Watch App features daily devotions from Greg Laurie, as well as content from his blog, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.
It also features push notifications, which users can opt out of. Harvest Ministries can push information to users’ watches and iPhones, letting them know about new resources and events.
Greg Laurie serves as Senior Pastor of one of the largest churches in the U.S., Harvest Christian Fellowship, based in Riverside and Irvine, CA, which also oversees the large-scale evangelistic events, Harvest Crusades. The ministry exists for the sole purpose of presenting the life-changing message of Jesus Christ to as many people as possible, and to help believers mature in their faith.
