Harvest America, the annual evangelistic event hosted by California pastor Greg Laurie, will take over the Dallas Cowboys‘ new stadium in Arlington, TX, on June 10th.
Billed as the “largest one-day evangelistic event,” it will be preceded by a concert featuring Crowder, Switchfoot, Tedashii, KB, Trip Lee, and others. The main two-hour event, starting at 6 PM Central Time, will feature a Gospel-bearing message by Greg Laurie. Admission is free and the event will be live streamed online as well as simulcast to hundreds of locations around the nation.
According to a statement, “Harvest America unites churches, leaders, and individuals passionate about bringing revival to America again. On one day, we will gather as one church, to proclaim one message: that Jesus Christ is the answer.”
The late evangelist Billy Graham had high regard for Greg Laurie, even agreeing with others who consider Laurie “the evangelist of the future.” Graham said, “Greg Laurie is not only a personal friend, but is one of the great communicators of the gospel of Jesus Christ in our generation. They have written him up to be the evangelist of the future and he is. I highly recommend him.”
The event has also been endorsed by Dallas-area pastors. Tony Evans, pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, said, “God has mightily used Greg in so many different ways and at many different venues. Because of him, many people are in the kingdom through Harvest America, the crusades, a dynamic church, a great testimony, a great man. I pray that you will join me and partner in this year’s Harvest America outreach.”
Matt Chandler, lead pastor of The Village Church, said, “I couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming Harvest event and love the Harvest model. You can bring your neighbor or family member, listen to the gospel of Jesus Christ be preached and proclaimed faithfully, and then you can follow up with them. I couldn’t encourage you more to come sit in and listen to the gospel message being proclaimed here in Dallas, Texas.”
Another Dallas pastor, Robert Morris of Gateway Church, said, “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. Gateway Church wholeheartedly supports Harvest America, and I would encourage every pastor and church to partner with them to reach their cities for Christ.”
