More than 8,600 people made professions of faith in Jesus Christ at the annual SoCal Harvest revival event last weekend. There were nearly 50,000 people in attendance.
SoCal Harvest, held on Nov. 5-6 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, was hosted by founder and Harvest Christian Fellowship megachurch pastor Greg Laurie. An additional 160,000 people watched the gathering online. The event was also featured across 600 social media pages and radio stations.
As reported by The Christian Post, the evangelistic event featured musical performances from Christian artists, including Jeremy Camp, Phil Wickham, the Newsboys, Andy Mineo and Crowder.
“God changed the course of my life, and He can do that for you,” Laurie told attendees and online viewers.
“My hope tonight is not in politicians or world leaders. It’s not in technology, money or possessions. It’s not even in religion,” said Laurie. “What we are all looking for is not something you hold in your hand. It’s something that happens in your heart in a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.”
SoCal Harvest also included themes from the upcoming movie “Jesus Revolution,” which highlights the real-life Jesus Movement that transpired in the 1960s and 1970s in Southern California.
The film showcases how the Jesus Movement affected a young Laurie and how a street preacher named Lonnie Frisbee influenced his life.
Actor Joel Courtney will play the role of a young Laure, Kelsey Grammer as Pastor Chuck Smith, and The Chosen’s Jonathan Roumie as Frisbee.
