[Release] Celebrating 30 Years of Ministry, Harvest Bible Chapel’s ‘Summer Revival’ Welcomes Former MLB All Star Darryl Strawberry and Pastor Levi Lusko

Aug. 10, 2018

CHICAGO — This summer, Harvest Bible Chapel is celebrating its 30th year of ministry in the Chicagoland area with a summer revival featuring some of America’s leading Bible teachers, award-winning musicians, television personalities and professional athletes. In their final week of the celebration, on Saturday, August 11, Harvest will hear a message from Levi Lusko, the lead pastor of Fresh Life Church, and the personal faith testimony of former MLB star Darryl Strawberry.

Though Darryl Strawberry was extremely successful in his professional baseball career, his personal life was plagued with addictions, abuse, divorces, cancer, jail-time and other issues. Darryl finally found true redemption and restoration in Jesus Christ. Today, Darryl’s purpose and passion are serving the Lord Jesus Christ by declaring a message of hope and restoration through the power of the gospel.

Levi Lusko is the lead pastor of Fresh Life Church — a multisite church located in Montana, Utah, Oregon, and Wyoming that he and his wife Jennie pioneered in 2007. He is passionate about Jesus and makes that known wherever he travels. Levi is also the author of the bestselling books, “Through the Eyes of a Lion: Facing Impossible Pain, Finding Incredible Power” and “Swipe Right: The Life-and-Death Power of Sex and Romance.”

Harvest’s final revival weekend will also include live music, with performances from the Grammy-nominated David Crowder, as well as Billboard Hot 100 singer and songwriter Jon Guerra. As always, Harvest’s own Vertical Worship band will be performing as well.

As with all of the previous revival weekends, this capstone to the celebration will also feature a Ravinia-style service on Saturday night, held at Harvest’s church campus in Elgin, and one Sunday service on all campuses. This weekend’s revival begins with a kids carnival on Saturday, August 11 at 4 p.m. A food tent with local vendors and restaurants will be onsite with a variety of options available for purchase.
