The much-anticipated SoCal Harvest will take place today at the Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. where attendees can expect a night full of worship, encouragement, and revival. 

Pastor Greg Laurie with Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside is hosting the event which starts at 7:00 pm PT. After postponing in 2020 due to COVID, Harvest is excited to bring the event back in person.

"I've never in my entire life and ministry encountered more hearts awakened to the Gospel," said Laurie. "I believe in the wake of the global pandemic we might be on the precipice of a great, global revival. I believe we'll see more energy in Angel Stadium on October 3 than we ever have before, and this event will be the first in a series of major events and initiatives that I believe God will use to reach more people in the next couple of years than in the previous decade. We are putting everything we have into reaching everyone we can. We all know now how short life can be." 

Music artists will include For King & Country, Phil Wickham, and many more.

As CBN News reported in 2019, the last SoCal Harvest event held before the pandemic drew 100,000 people. It was the 30th year of the SoCal Harvest, making it one of the longest-running evangelistic events in the nation.

SoCal Harvest, an annual outreach held in southern California, was started in 1990 by Pastor Laurie and Chuck Smith, pastor and founder of Calvary Chapel.

Even though this is the ministry's first in-person stadium outreach event in over a year,  Laurie released a cinematic crusade called "A Rush of Hope" last Sept. which reached over 4 million people.

Most importantly, thousands chose to follow Jesus after watching the movie. 

"Because of the pandemic last year, we had the incredible opportunity to create and release A Rush of Hope, which led to more than 17,000 people making professions of faith," Laurie explained. "And we are thrilled that we are able to be back together this year in person for another life-changing event."

A live-stream option will be available at https://harvest.org/ for those who are unable to attend the event.
