It’s a Wrap! 2021 SoCal Recap
“The meaning of life,” Pastor Greg summarized, “is to know the God who created you.”
We also enjoyed electric performances from guest artists for KING & COUNTRY, as well as Phil Wickham, who played as a firework show celebrated the thousands who made a profession of faith that evening.
So many elements of this SoCal Harvest were different from anything done in the past. But despite all the changes, 40,000 people showed up for the one-night SoCal Harvest, over 200,000 online, and over 6,000 responded to the gospel invitation.
Throughout the night, Pastor Greg Laurie delivered a message titled, “What You’re Really Looking For,” in which he peeked behind the curtain of fame to show the emptiness of seeking fame, money, and success.
‘We wouldn’t have missed this for the world’
“This is amazing,” another said, “It feels like the whole city is here together. Actually, it’s more like ten cities, brothers and sisters gathered in one place. I really feel the Holy Spirit is here.”
“I’ve watched Pastor Greg before, listened to him on the radio,” one person who came down on the field explained, “but tonight, he really reached me, or I should say that Jesus reached me. I needed forgiveness, and I found it, Jesus is alive, and He is within me forever.”
As Pastor Greg says, “I believe we might be on the precipice of a great, global revival. . . . We are putting everything we have into reaching everyone we can.”
We want to give a big shoutout to our local church family for being incredibly supportive throughout this season! From prayer to serving to giving, you are the reason we are able to do outreach events like SoCal Harvest.
There is evidence of God’s love and work when the Church comes together!
By all accounts, people were hungry for the hope and the community that this event brought. After a year without large-scale, in-person events, last night was a much-needed reunion of believers new and old.
“Can you believe how many people are here?” one attendee told us, “We’ve come from Los Angeles, and frankly, we would have driven across the country to be here. We wouldn’t have missed this for the world.”
There was a tangible moment of excitement and anticipation among the crowd as the field began to fill up with believers coming to Christ. All people from all walks of life were now walking forward to start their relationship with God.
With hard work and love, the SoCal Harvest was ground zero for an explosion of faith unlike anything we have ever seen before! Another testimony reminded us how urgently needed this event was:
“I never thought I would be on this field tonight, I always thought that God was something I couldn’t understand, then tonight, I listened with my heart instead of my ears, and it became clear. I needed Jesus in my life, not tomorrow, not five minutes from now, but right now.”
