We are still so excited about everything God did at the Harvest America event at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas! Over 10,000 people flooded the field after the event to surrender their lives to Jesus. It was BEAUTIFUL!

And we are so thankful for their partnership this year. They gave us an amazing level of sponsorship at no charge - because they love the mission of Embrace Grace and see the need of churches being the hands and feet of Jesus for young women with unplanned pregnancies.

We set up a big Love Box assembly station in the courtyard of the stadium and hundreds of people came through to assemble a box to get to a young woman in need. The very first person that came through was a man that had just come through the gates as soon as they opened. He was the first person in line and was eager to assemble a Love Box.

The second person in line was a young, pregnant woman. I sparked up a conversation with her, wondering if she was single with an unplanned pregnancy. As the conversation progressed, it was confirmed she is indeed single and pregnant with an unintended pregnancy. She is 19 and the father of the baby is not involved. Tears rolled down her face as we explained what we do and how we can help. My favorite part of the day is when the young man that was in front of her in line, turned around and gave his Love Box that he had just made to her. The very first Love Box in the assembly line for the day was given to someone that needed hope right in that very moment. AMAZING!

We got all of her info and she has already signed up to attend an Embrace Grace group at a church near her where she will hear the gospel and be discipled - and make new friends!

God is moving and we are so thankful and excited to partner with Heaven in the most creative ways to reach the lost and hurting and point them back to Jesus.

We could not do this without YOU - our partners, volunteers, our givers, our staff and everyone that prays for us. Together, we can make sure no single mom walks alone!

This month we launched 14 new groups!

"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."
Robert Morris

"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 years Harvest America outreach."
Dr. Tony Evans

Dr. Tony Evans, Senior Pastor, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship

"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."
Matt Chandler

Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church

"Greg Laurie has been my friend for many years, and in that time I've seen God work through Greg's evangelistic preaching to reach thousands upon thousands of lives for Jesus Christ. Hosting Harvest America in your church is a unique and powerful way for the gospel to reach people in your community too."
James MacDonald

James MacDonald, Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel

"There is no questions that Greg Laurie is making a huge impact for Christ and that lives are being changed by the thousands through Harvest America. If you are a follower of Jesus, this is the perfect opportunity to invite someone who doesn't know Christ to hear about the life transforming power of the Gospel."
Craig Groeschel

Craig Groeschel, Senior Pastor, Life Church

"Greg Laurie’s focus on the Gospel is why so many Southern Baptist churches and pastors have been involved with Harvest over the past 25 years . . . I strongly encourage you to get involved as well."
Kevin Ezell

Kevin Ezell, SBC North American Mission Board President

"Greg Laurie has been serving the Lord evangelistically since the early 1970s, when God changed his life during the Jesus Movement in Southern California. God has gifted Greg to give a clear, passionate, biblical presentation of the gospel. God uses him to call people to faith in Christ. I hope that you will invite your lost friends to this event, so that they can be saved."
Steve Gaines

Steve Gaines, Senior Pastor, Bellevue Baptist Church, Current President of the Southern Baptist Convention

"Harvest Crusades really helped renew in our church a passion to reach our city. We are still benefiting from the vision for evangelism and empowerment in disciple-making they helped lead us into! I don't know any other way of saying it besides, 'This strategy still works!'"
