ANAHEIM, Calif. – An over-capacity crowd of 47,000 at Angel Stadium joined performers Chris Tomlin, Crystal Lewis, and for King and Country in what often seemed like the biggest Christian music sing-along ever during the closing night of the 3-day SoCal Harvest with Greg Laurie.
"People are so hungry. That's what I've loved about this crusade, is that people are so hungry to worship God, and not just checking it out but they are really engaged," worship singer and songwriter Chris Tomlin told The Christian Post shortly before taking the massive stage that was set up on the infield.

Australian megachurch Hillsong has influenced Christian worship far and wide, with its songs like "Mighty to Save" and "Awesome God" routinely belted out in churches around the world. The Pentecostal church's music ministry has proven so pivotal to modern Christian worship that its United brand is the subject of a new documentary and, along with Hillsong's other mainstays (UNITED and Young & Free), has racked up this year 10 GMA Dove Award nominations.

ANAHEIM, Calif. – Evangelist Greg Laurie told a crowd at Angel Stadium of more than 28,000 people and an online webcast audience of thousands more watching the opening night on Friday of the 3-day SoCal Harvest, that despite sins committed, no one is beyond the reach of God.
After interviewing former mobster Michael Franzese, who became a committed Christian while in solitary confinement inside prison, he said:
"If God can forgive and change a man such as Michael Franzese or Paul of Tarsus (from the Bible) then God can change even you.. God can forgive you of every sin you have ever committed because the Bible says that with God all things are possible." more >>
Franklin Graham will bring together thousands of people in Pittsburgh this weekend for a three-day evangelistic festival that will gather over 500 churches from 50 denominations to partake in a worship experience that will feature a lineup of well-known Christian artists and Graham's message of hope.
The event is part of Graham's annual seven-city festival tour and it will be the first time Pittsburg reportedly hosts a Christian gathering of its magnitude since Graham's father Billy Graham hosted a crusade in the city in 1993.
"We have a great opportunity to reach this city with the gospel of Jesus Christ … the world is in trouble, there's a great spiritual need and the world seems to be coming apart at the seams, who can save us? I've got the answer so I hope you'll join us," said Graham in an online video invitation. more >>
