Thousands Respond to the Gospel in Texas

Thousands flocked to AT&T Stadium on June 10 from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex for Harvest America to experience music and proclamation evangelism from Pastor Greg.

In his message, Pastor Greg shared about his troubled childhood, rife with drug and alcohol use. He shared, “I was going downhill fast. . . . I was too cynical, too hard . . . but Christ changed my life one day. I didn’t plan on it, but it happened.” And now over 45 years later he speaks with authority that nothing and no one can meet our deepest need but Jesus.

Pastor Greg also touched on recent news stories that have shocked the nation, that two celebrities—television personality Anthony Bourdain and fashion icon Kate Spade—took their own lives. Last year, 45,000 Americans took their lives, he added.

“I’m not here tonight to talk to you about religion. I’m here to talk to you about a relationship, a friendship, with God,” Pastor Laurie told the crowd.

“There is someone who loves you and someone who values you. And He’s called Jesus Christ,” he stated, and quoted one of his favorite verses in the Bible, Jeremiah 29:11, which reads, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”

As it turns out, Harvest Ministries later learned one of the people listening was a young suicidal girl. Her arms were scarred from multiple suicide attempts. She was getting ready to leave after the event started, but when she heard Pastor Greg tell suicidal people that there was hope in Christ, she stayed. At the evening’s close, she walked forward and made a commitment to follow Jesus. Let’s remember to pray for her and the many others that came to Jesus last night across America.

    I am Manju Moses from India. It was great to hear from Pastor Greg at Harvest America. So glad that God is raising people like him who are faithful to the simplest preaching of the Gospel without any compromise. Truly Gospel of Christ is powerful unto salvation Rom. 1:16.

    So filled with joy at how the many heard the Word and so many responded by receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. Thank you for your faithfulness in being God’s vessel of the Good News and for all the followup and disciplemaking that is involved in this Harvest ministry. God bless you all!

    Greg, seeing God working through you for these several decades has been amazing to follow. Being a decades-long Switchfoot fan only helps! I always enjoy watching vids of those guys in their early 20s. I was privileged recently to order a CD from Chad’s dad, from a band called Parables. Sometimes I think I am a California Jesus-era person born out of place in Minnesota! I was saved in ’71. Back then you had hair but now you have wisdom instead. What a great ministry God has entrusted to you!! Bless you! I sort of believe you are the new billy Graham in lots of ways even with the Beggs, the Zacahriases, Youssefs and somany more God has gifted His church in our days. Bless you Greg!!

    ALOHA! from Honolulu, HI
    I’ve been listening to Pastor Greg Laurie and his team for over a year now! Such a blessing to believe whole-heartedly in God, and his ministering angel’s he had sent to me everyday. I am
    very excited to share the Lord’s gospel everywhere I go and to whom ever I speak with on a
    daily basis. I truly believe that God has a plan for me (Jerm. 29:11) and I am committed to faithfully deliver his Great Commission. I am praying for all the Nations around the world.
    Thank you God for the awesome praise report of the many who accepted Christ, yesterday,
    today, tomorrow, and forever. Love you all!
