You have to read this!

August 30th, 2012 Posted in sermons

We have come up with some numbers that we feel are fairly accurate to gauge our total reach. Out of more than 2400 host sites that participated, over 1,000 of those were churches, and others were neutral sites, hotel ballrooms, gymnasiums, homes, etc. We have had more than 480 report back with their results. When we extrapolate the data (counting only about half for the sites that haven’t reported) the totals we end up with are these:

235,000 attended host venues on Sunday
37,000 attended at the stadium on Sunday

Total live Sunday attendance: 272,000

The response to the invitation totaled a little more than 18,000!

That would make last Sunday the largest single presentation of the gospel in American history! Praise God!

When we add our Saturday totals, it means that we reached 312,000 people in live attendance over the weekend, with more than 22,000 making professions of faith. When we add the internet viewing audience, our total number of people who watched either live in person or on the web is over 400,000! These numbers don’t reflect how many people – potentially in the millions –  also viewed or listened to the event live on television and radio.

Now we focus on Dodger Stadium. Let’s not let up. Keep on praying! Pray hard for the crusade, web, and media teams. They are working overtime to get us to the finish line.
Blessings to you all!

    So amazing. I just prayed for the event tonight at Dodger Stadium. I hope that many make a first time commitment to Christ and many many prodigals return with a new fire in their heart to serve the Lord.

  2. David Llamas says:

    I prayed Hard for yall! Lord you are indescribable, I love you SO much. Matthew 10:42 And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward.”

    Praising God with you for the AMAZING move of the Holy Spirit at the Anaheim crusade!

    Pastor Greg you and your entire family are in my prayers and so are all the support staff, singers and musicians for the upcoming dates at the Dodger Stadium.

    Standing with you in faith and praying for many more lost souls to say… “Here I am Lord, save me”.

  9. Ron Lee says:

    What an incredible blessing Pastor Laurie! Let’s continue the kingdom work that needs to done 24/7 just like in the days when King David instructed his musicians and singers to praise God 24 hours a day in front of the ark of the covenant and kept it up for years!
    Praise God and our Lord Jesus Christ!

  10. BettyJean O'Donnell says:

    Thank you, Lord, for blessing beyond measure!

  11. Valerie Asleson says:

    I wasnt able to attend this year but watched with my family on our Ipad both nights. Greg, I have to say Sunday night when you spoke was one of the best ever! I thank God for you and everyone who put their time and hard work into making the crusades GLORIOUS!

  12. Dan Sbur says:

    It is not a surprise that when we pray for that which is in line with God’s
    will mountains will move. In this case at least 22,000 mountains were moved. Do not ever stop praying!!

  13. Connie Wragge says:

    We are so thankful to God for so many prayers that have been answered; and so many souls that have now begun to walk with Him. As Leonard Ravenhill once said, “The true church lives and moves and has its being in prayer.” This Crusade, as all Crusades, was birthed in prayer and now prayer continues for the spiritual growth of the ones who have recently come to know Christ as Lord.

  14. Nicole Troiano says:

    These events combined are truly unprecedented. The pictures taken of all those who responded by walking down to the field at the stadium is a testimony to how many people are hungry for the Word and need a Savior. My sincere gratitude to the many teams who assembled the planning and logistics. The truth was spoken according to our Bible and thousands across the nation (and some surrounding countries) made the best decision they’ll ever make by accepting the Lord for the first time, and/or rededicating their lives to the one who saves. I attended both nights at the stadium; night 1 as a decision follow-up volunteer, and night 2 i brought my sister who was equally blessed and encouraged. Thank you Harvest Christian Fellowship. Here we come LA!!

  16. Dan Horner says:

  17. Suzanne Hobbs says:
