Greg Laurie’s movie, “A Rush of Hope,” captured the hearts of over 1.8 million people over Labor Day weekend — shattering Harvest Crusades’ attendance records.
MovieGuide reported the crusade film aired on hundreds of radio stations, including online streaming services. The movie featured messages from Laurie, excerpts from faith-based movies such as “I Still Believe” and “Woodlawn.” There were performances by artists such as Jeremy Camp, for KING & COUNTRY and MercyMe.
“In a year of never-ending bad news, this is the best news we have heard. It’s a reminder that God is greater than a pandemic or any other challenge we are facing. He can do above and beyond anything we can dream, and He is still transforming lives,” said Laurie, who also garnered praise from Washington, D.C. with his message of hope.
“Every year @greglaurie brings Gods hope to our country,” tweeted Senator Marko Rubio.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shared the importance of hope in America today. “Pastor Greg Laurie is bringing hope to our country through his ‘Rush of Hope’ crusade,” posted Pompeo.
The ministry in its 30-year history never did anything like this before, said Laurie. “The Covid-19 pandemic has completely changed all our plans, but it has opened an incredible window of opportunity for the gospel. Now, more than ever, people are hungry for something the world cannot give them. This cinematic crusade is designed to reach as many people as possible and help them answer the deepest questions of their hearts.”
