Some 100,000 Southern Californians packed out Angel Stadium of Anaheim during the three nights of the 29th annual SoCal Harvest, which ran from Aug. 17–19. Bibles in hand and friends by their sides, thousands poured into the stadium venue ready to hear the gospel delivered by pastor and evangelist Greg Laurie, who was joined by top Christian artists Chris Tomlin, MercyMe and Phil Wickham over the course of the weekend. Laurie spoke each night of the SoCal Harvest, placing special emphasis on California’s—and the nation’s—need for revival.
Laurie, who has likened the current state of our nation to the historically turbulent time in the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s that ignited the spiritual awakening known as the Jesus Movement said, “Our state and our country need a spiritual awakening, and that starts right here, right now, with us,” said Laurie. “The last great revival in our country began in California, and we say, ‘Lord, do it again!'”
