Riverside, CA (July 22, 2021)
Greg Laurie, founder and lead pastor of Harvest Churches and Harvest Crusades, will return to Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California on Sunday, October 3, 2021 for SoCal Harvest—the ministry’s first stadium outreach event in over a year.
Started in 1990 by Greg Laurie and Chuck Smith, pastor and founder of Calvary Chapel, SoCal Harvest is an annual crusade held in southern California. In years past, SoCal Harvest has packed the stadium in Anaheim, but as a result of gathering restrictions in 2020, the in-person event was replaced last year by the one-of-a-kind cinematic crusade “A Rush of Hope,” which reached over 4 million people.
SoCal Harvest 2021 will feature worship by Christian music artists Phil Wickham and for KING & COUNTRY, as well as a special message from Pastor Greg Laurie.
“Because of the pandemic last year, we had the incredible opportunity to create and release ‘A Rush of Hope,’ which led to more than 17,000 people making professions of faith,” said Laurie. “And we are thrilled that we are able to be back together this year in person for another life-changing event.”
A live-stream option will be available for those who are not comfortable or able to attend in person. For those who attend in-person, the event will follow protocols currently being employed in Angel Stadium.
“I’ve never in my entire life and ministry encountered more hearts awakened to the Gospel,” said Laurie. “I believe in the wake of the global pandemic we might be on the precipice of a great, global revival. I believe we’ll see more energy in Angel Stadium on October 3 than we ever have before, and this event will be the first in a series of major events and initiatives that I believe God will use to reach more people in the next couple of years than in the previous decade. We are putting everything we have into reaching everyone we can. We all know now how short life can be.”
