Last event at AT&T Stadium drew more than 90,000 in 2016
ARLINGTON, Texas, Feb. 5, 2018 – Harvest America will work 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 on June 10.
“As our country continues to be so bitterly divided, the Gospel and a spiritual revival are our only real solutions,” Laurie said. “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.”
In 1990, Laurie began 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.
Admission is free.
The last time Harvest America came to the Dallas area 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 at 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.
Laurie has also held crusades in Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
The Harvest America team will be 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.
"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.
Chris Tomlin, Switchfoot, Crowder and Phil Wickham will be the musical guests June 10 at AT&T Stadium, with others to be announced.
“On ONE DAY, we will gather as ONE CHURCH, to proclaim ONE MESSAGE: that Jesus Christ is the answer,” Laurie said.
Laurie serves as senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship, based in Riverside, California, which oversees the Harvest Crusades. The ministry exists for the purpose of presenting the life-changing message of Jesus Christ to as many people as possible, and to help believers mature in their faith.
