Why We Love This Opportunity
If there are two words about Harvest to encapsulate the start, it would be “humble beginnings.” Few may know that before it was one of the largest churches in America, it started as a home Bible study of 30 people. In 1973 in Riverside, California, a 19-year-old Greg Laurie felt the call of God to lead this group. Harvest Christian Fellowship was transformed from a small group into a church of 15,000 people at multiple campus locations in Southern California and Hawaii through God’s guiding hand.
Church or Org Description
Longing to reach more people with Jesus Christ, this team began holding Harvest Crusades in 1990. For 30 years, these large-scale evangelistic events have reached millions of people, and hundreds of thousands of them have professed faith in Jesus Christ. Of these events, the largest live one-day evangelistic event in US history occurred at Harvest America 2016—350,000 people in attendance. From humble a Bible study to Harvest Crusades, the outpouring of God’s favor has allowed Harvest to reach millions of people all over the world with the gospel. Greg Laurie and the Harvest team continue to bring the gospel home each week at Harvest Christian Fellowship and across the nation.
