Laurie is looking to take the Harvest Crusades, which are large-scale evangelistic outreaches primarily held at stadiums and arenas, to the next level.
He plans to draw on the success of last year's Harvest webcasts from Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles and Angels Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., during which individuals watched from every state and 32 countries around the world.
The concept of Harvest America, which will be held Aug. 26 in Anaheim, includes the hope that churches and Christian leaders that host the event in their own cities can establish a direct relationship with those attending and those making decisions to commit to Jesus Christ.
The Start! Rally was webcast on harvestamerica.com Sunday.
