This year’s SoCal Harvest Crusade saw thousands give their lives to Jesus Christ over the two-night event held at the Honda Center over the weekend.
The arena was packed with 16,000 people and more than 47,000 viewed the crusade online.
Harvest Christian Fellowship’s senior Pastor Greg Laurie has held this soul-winning event for the last 34 years with 121 “Crusade” events all around the world.
“We have been able to preach the Gospel live to over 6 million people and we have seen over 600,000 make professions of faith,” he tweeted about the outreaches.
This year’s event reached a global audience with the message about God’s love and the gift of salvation.
“Nails did not hold Jesus Christ to the cross 2000 years ago – Love did! Love for you. Love for me,” Laurie preached. “As I said earlier, God loves you. He died for you. If you had been the only person on planet Earth, Jesus would have gone to the cross and suffered and died for you. And know, he did suffer. He loves you so much. It hurts.”
Laurie ended the crusade with a message titled “Good News In A Bad World.”
“We are living in a crazy, upside-down world full of bad news. I think we could all use some good news in a bad world, don’t you? That’s what the word ‘Gospel’ means… ‘Good News’,” he tweeted.
Award-winning Christian music artists Michael W. Smith, Chris Tomlin, Phil Wickham, and Taya Gaukrodger led worship.
This was the 34th year of the SoCal Harvest making it one of the longest-running evangelistic events in the nation.
