This past weekend, 2,600 people attended the first-ever Harvest Santa Monica held at the Santa Monica Civic Center.
From Los Angeles, Orange County, and the Inland Empire hundreds gathered to listen to Harvest Crusade evangelist Greg Laurie speak on topics such as "Fear and Worry" and "Are We Living in the Last Days?"
We are so excited by how God moved in Santa Monica this past weekend, said Mike Jonker, organizer of the Harvest Crusade, held June 3 - 4.
It was the first Harvest Crusade event in this city, and the response was tremendous with more than 300 people making commitments to Christ. There is nothing more important than seeing peoples lives changed through Christ.
Jonker said Harvest hopes to return next year to the more populous city of Los Angeles.
For his next evangelistic crusade, Greg Laurie and Harvest will bring the Southern California Harvest to Angel Stadium of Anaheim from July 15 17.
