RIVERSIDE, Calif., June 6, 2017—When world-renowned evangelist Greg Laurie takes the stage at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona this Sunday, a life-changing message of hope will go global. Harvest America 2017, an unprecedented, one-day evangelistic outreach, will bring the love of Christ “live” to hundreds of millions of people worldwide.
“Just before He returned to Heaven, Jesus instructed His disciples to take His Gospel message to the ends of the earth,” said Greg Laurie, founder of the Harvest America outreach which will be broadcast live via satellite Sunday, June 11, at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET from the University of Phoenix Stadium (pre-concert begins at 4:30 p.m. PT). “With state-of-the art technology and the help of our partners, TBN and the Southern Baptist Convention, we are responding to Christ’s challenge with a one-night, global outreach unlike anything done before,” added Laurie, who has been called “the evangelist of the future” by Billy Graham and has been leading Harvest events for more than a quarter century.
Ways to participate in Harvest America 2017:
- Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN)—Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) will broadcast Harvest America live for the first time on its global family of networks, which spans 174 countries and has a potential reach of 1 billion people.
- Online, live streaming at www.HarvestAmerica.com and on World Net Daily.
- Live radio broadcasts by more than 600 outlets.
- Live simulcast to thousands of host locations across the U.S., including churches, homes, and theaters.
While technology will be used to reach a national and international audience, hands and feet will be at work reaching those in the Phoenix area. Thousands of volunteers from the Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting, which will take place in Phoenix just after the Harvest America, will serve in various capacities to engage and interact with attendees and the wider community before, during and after the one-night event.
In addition to the message of hope delivered by Laurie, Harvest America will feature music from top name Christian artists including NEEDTOBREATHE, MercyMe, Jordin Sparks, Trip Lee, Phil Wickham and Brennley Brown. Harvest America is free to attend and open to all who come—in person, online, or via the live satellite broadcast.
Founded in 1990 by Greg Laurie, pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside and Irvine, Calif., and Maui, Hawaii, Harvest Crusade events have been attended by more than 7.6 million people worldwide, both in-person and via live Internet broadcasts. In 2012, a new nationwide simulcast called Harvest America was born, expanding the reach of the gospel even further. The 2016 Harvest America event, held at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, was live streamed to more than 7,200 remote host locations and drew a combined 357,000 participants, making it the largest one-day live evangelistic event in American history.
