Harvest America is working with hundreds of local churches and thousands of simulcast locations from around the country to bring a Gospel message from Pastor Greg Laurie and music from top Christian artists to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on June 10.
“As our country continues to be so bitterly divided, the Gospel and a spiritual revival are our only real solutions,” said Laurie, senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, in a press release. “Our prayer is that God will use Harvest America 2018 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.”
Since 1990, Laurie has been holding large-scale evangelistic events called Harvest Crusades, and in 2012 he launched Harvest America by using the internet and satellite technology to simulcast live video to thousands of locations across the country.
The last time Harvest America was in the Dallas area was in 2016, it attracted a crowd of more than 90,000 – believed to be a record for a one-day evangelistic event in the U.S. – and more than 180,000 viewed the event from 7,200 remote locations in all 50 states and 123 countries. The total audience, including more than 95,000 around the world viewing the webcast at www.harvestamerica.com, surpassed 350,000.
For this year’s event, the Harvest America team has been working with an advisory board of local pastors and ministry leaders including Dr. Jack Graham of Prestonwood Baptist Church, Pastor Bryan Carter of Concord Church of Dallas, and Rev. Robert Morris of Gateway Church.
“We are praying and preparing for @HarvestAmerica with @greglaurie June 10 at AT&T Stadium,” tweeted Graham on Tuesday. “Please join our church @Prestonwood and hundreds and hundreds of others on site or at your own location as we proclaim Christ.”
“When it comes to reaching the lost, I’m grateful that every generation has a Billy Graham, and Greg Laurie is a Billy Graham to our generation,” Morris said in a press release.
Chris Tomlin, Switchfoot, Crowder and Phil Wickham will be the musical guests June 10 at AT&T Stadium, with others to be announced. Admission is free, as is the live feed.
“On ONE DAY, we will gather as ONE CHURCH, to proclaim ONE MESSAGE: that Jesus Christ is the answer,” Laurie said.
