Churches and individuals across the country are invited to take part in the nation’s largest one-day evangelistic outreach by joining with thousands of other host sites to simulcast Harvest America 2017 when it is broadcast live via satellite to the nation from the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., on Sunday, June 11 at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET. Designed to impact a country desperately in need of hope, the nationwide simulcast of the Harvest America outreach is completely free and open to the public at each host location.
Churches, organizations and individuals interested in hosting the Harvest America outreach in their community can find more information at www.HarvestAmerica.com/host-the-simulcast. Last year, the Harvest America event simulcast was hosted in 2,000 churches and 5,000 homes. The actual process for hosting is free, simple, and meaningful, and allows people across the country to be part of the largest event of its kind anywhere. A complete list of Harvest America 2017 satellite sites is available at www.HarvestAmerica.com/find-an-event.
“Participating in the Harvest America outreach over the past few years has made a difference in our church and community as we’ve seen lives transformed by the message of the Gospel presented by Greg Laurie,” said Pastor Bob Grenier of Calvary Chapel Visalia in Visalia, Calif. “Hosting Harvest America is as easy as opening up your church or inviting friends into your home—the two hours you spend taking part in this excellent outreach could impact lives for eternity.”
Harvest America 2017 will feature a message from pastor, author, and evangelist Greg Laurie and music from top name artists including NEEDTOBREATHE, MercyMe, Trip Lee, and Phil Wickham.
With a trademark ability to present a clear gospel message in a culturally relevant format, drawing on the latest in current events, contemporary Christian music, and technology, Greg Laurie has been called the “evangelist of the future” by Billy Graham. Laurie’s talks encompass topics that appeal to people of any age and answer questions like: Why am I here? Is God real? What happens when I die?
Harvest America 2017 will be broadcast live on the Internet at www.HarvestAmerica.com, and “behind the scenes” updates about Harvest America 2017 will be posted on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (or search #HarvestAmerica). Additionally, this year Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) will broadcast Harvest America live for the first time on its global family of networks which spans 174 countries and has a potential reach of 1 billion people.
Founded in 1990 by Greg Laurie, pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside and Irvine, Calif., and Maui, Hawaii, Harvest Crusade events have been attended by more than 7.6 million people worldwide, both in-person and via live Internet broadcasts. In 2012, a new nationwide simulcast called Harvest America was born, expanding the reach of the gospel even further. The 2016 Harvest America event, held at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, was live streamed to more than 7,200 remote host locations and drew a combined 357,000 participants, making it the largest one-day live evangelistic event in American history.
