Evangelist and pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries (church and crusades) announced the dates and locations of this year's Harvest events. For the first time in its 22-year history, last year, the Harvest evangelism event was simulcast live at host churches and other venues throughout the nation.
During preparation of the event last year, Laurie said that he and Harvest organizers believe they can see a similar response as they have seen in person at Angel Stadium and other venues for 22 years – one in which thousands of people make commitments to Jesus Christ.
The Harvest Ministry team plans to repeat the Harvest America format over the next three years. During this time period, they could conservatively see more than five million people in live-stream events and effectively see some 500,000 professions of faith. The ministry's estimates convert to higher numbers than seen in the Harvest Crusades' 22-year history, organizers said.
Laurie said this last week:
Last year was our most successful year of evangelism in Harvest's history, seeing 40,000 people make professions of faith in Christ. But we're not slowing down to celebrate, so start marking your calendars for even more opportunities for evangelism in 2013!
The fields are white, and a Harvest is coming through the platform of three events this year:
July 20, 2013 (Tentative): Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles
August 23–25, 2013: Angel Stadium in Anaheim
Harvest America 2013
September 29, 2013: Harvest America, streamed live from Philadelphia nationwide to your host location.
