Join the Celebration


I recently met a Christian man in Dallas who shared a unique Harvest America experience. It just happened that Harvest America last June landed on his birthday. Having never heard of Harvest America, he had made plans to celebrate his birthday with family and some friends. He also decided to invite a neighbor he didn’t know all that well. His neighbor, a nice man, was also a fairly heavy drinker and partier.

To his surprise, when he asked his neighbor if he’d like to come to his party he was told emphatically, “No, I can’t come. That day I reserve for Harvest America. It’s the one day of the year I don’t drink!” Amazingly, this man who doesn’t attend a church reserved a day on the calendar each year to soberly listen to the gospel!

Now we don’t know the end of that story just yet, whether the gospel has taken root in his life. We do know, however, that the Christian man who invited him is now very familiar with Harvest America and a supporter of our mission. But in the end, it says something about those outside the church and their curiosity in an event that draws them to a place where joyous song and Christ-centered preaching unashamedly occur. It tells us, people want to know about Jesus and they are attracted to a festive event where God’s people from all ethnicities, all denominations, all walks of life, come together under the banner of the gospel.

Harvest America, at its core, is a celebration of the gospel and the influence it has had on our nation. Harvest America is an opportunity for churches across the nation to open their churches to their communities and invite the curious to come and experience the joy resounding through a stadium filled with people in love with God. It is a party, a celebration of the great mystery of our God and His gospel message.

Become a host site and join the party at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on June10th and proclaim the gospel in your church or community!

"Greg Laurie is not only a personal friend, but is one of the great communicators of the gospel of Jesus Christ in our generation. They have written him up to be the evangelist of the future and he is. I highly recommend him."

Billy Graham, Evangelist and Author

"Greg Laurie is a dynamic pastor, gifted evangelist, and trusted friend. Prestonwood is thrilled to be an anchor church in Harvest America. I hope you will be a part of this amazing opportunity too."

Dr. Jack Graham, Senior Pastor, Prestonwood Baptist 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. 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, Founding Senior Pastor, Gateway Church

"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, 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, 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, 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, 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, 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, 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!'"

JD Greear, Senior Pastor, The Summit Church
