We Had An Amazing Weekend At The Southern California Harvest

August 9th, 2010 Posted in Harvest Crusades, OC, Pastor's corner

What can I say, but “Wow!” What a weekend at Angel Stadium!

Last night was epic with Steven Curtis Chapman, MercyMe, and Dr. James Dobson. The stadium was packed out with 48,000 people packed, and thousands were even turned away. We called it “An Evening of Hope” and I interviewed Steven and Dr. Dobson on the “whys” of suffering in life.

This was not only a night for evangelism, but for believers as well. There are so many hurting Christians who are facing tragedy, and I have already heard from many of them, telling me that what they heard last night brought great comfort.

Incredible response to the gospel

When the invitation to follow Christ was given last night, 4,224 people responded! That brings us to a total of 118,000 attendance, with 11,045 making commitments to follow Jesus Christ this weekend!

Largest web audience ever!

Our audience on the Web was much larger than normal, as well. Last year, 74,000 viewed our live webcasts. This year, we had 290,000 watching online!

And don’t forget that many more will see the archived webcasts during the weeks and months to come.

This year’s event was also broadcast live on KFSH (95.9 FM) locally in Southern California, reaching thousands more.

Whew!

Coming to your TV too!

We will also broadcast the entire Southern California Harvest internationally on TBN soon. I’ll let you know the airdates as soon as I find out.

So, God bless you all, and thanks for your prayers. This was an amazing Harvest weekend!

And if you didn’t get a chance to see any of the webcasts, you can watch it all in HD here.

    I was able to watch the crusade Saturday night and come with some friends on Sunday.

    One friend in particular that I had brought, had backslidden. After the Katina’s she told me it had been a long time since she worshipped God that way. I asked her about recommiting her life and she said she thinks about it all the time but can’t do it with all the stuff that she does. I continued to talk to her and said she can’t fix all those things by herself and asked what is stopping her. She didn’t answer. She didn’t go up but a couple days later she told me she had broken up with her boyfriend because it was that relationship that was stopping her.

    Stuff is still happening even after the crusade!

    Being able to view the Crusade from home was awesome! What a blessing to feel as though I was right there. To witness God’s movement among so many brought me to tears. You could feel God’s love, and you could see it on the faces of those surrendering their lives to Christ. God bless you, Greg, and thank you Harvest Christian Fellowship!
