Greg Laurie’s young life was shaped by his alcoholic mother who walked a path of chaos and self-destruction. Greg followed in her footsteps and found himself headed down the same path. After receiving the gospel message, Greg committed his life to Christ and full-time ministry. In 1990, Laurie began holding large-scale public evangelistic events called Harvest Crusades. Since that time, more than 5 million people have attended these events nationwide.
