Manassas, VA – The NRB Convention will feature a presentation by Greg Laurie, senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship Church in Riverside, CA, during the Awards Dinner at NRB 2012 in Nashville, TN, on Tuesday, February 21st.

“We are delighted to have Greg speak at NRB 2012. He is a gifted Christian leader and speaker whose message challenges and equips believers to seek after God’s will for their lives,” commented NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright.

Greg Laurie began his pastoral ministry at age 19 by leading a Bible study of 30 people. Since then, God has transformed that small group into a church of some 15,000. Today, Harvest is one of the largest churches in America.

In 1990, Laurie began holding public evangelistic events called Harvest Crusades. Since that time, more than four million people have attended Harvest Crusade events across the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

He is the featured speaker of the nationally syndicated radio program, A New Beginning, with daily listeners coast-to-coast and overseas on more than 500 outlets.

Whether speaking or writing, God has gifted Pastor Greg with the ability to apply biblical principles to current events in a way that is relevant and easily understood by people of all ages, from all walks of life.

Greg and his wife Cathe have two sons, Christopher—who went to be with the Lord in 2008—and Jonathan; two daughters-in-law, Brittany and Brittni; and four granddaughters.
