Greg Laurie: Lost Boy
Here's a picture of Greg Laurie who has really adopted Levi and given him some terrific opportunities at Harvest and
My history with Harvest goes back to the Dark Ages. Just after I was saved in Hawaii, I was living at a Calvary Christian Commune called Shiloh in Honolulu. I was in a bit of culture lifestyle shock when we all went to the
Aloha Bowl for a Harvest Event. Pastor Chuck was there, along with music from Daniel Amos for sure, and I think Oden Fong and Mustard Seed Faith. DA was doing a revolutionary concept album, Shotgun Angel, unheard at that time.
This was one of the early versions of what would become Harvest Crusades. Little did I know...
A year later, I was living in So Cal, and helping start Calvary Southbay, one weekend I spent in Palm Springs and didn't go to a church on Sunday morning- driving home through Riverside, I remembered something about Greg, but did not know where or even if he had a PM service. I just randomly pulled off the 91 and followed a car with a Jesus sticker till I saw people carrying Bibles! Sure enough, they led to a Episcopal Church that Harvest was using. Pretty magical night. Sweet Comfort played and Greg preached it up.
Eventually, I would get to know Greg at Pastor's conferences,Crusades and serve with him on the CCABQ Board and on the Epicenter project.
Now, he is adopting Levi- that's fine, but he has grandchildren of his own!
The Lord is pretty amazing.
