LOS ANGELES, Sept. 11, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ — Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) — the world’s largest religious broadcaster and the most watched faith-based channel globally — confirmed that the network will be airing “The ‘Los Angeles’ Harvest Crusade with Pastor Greg Laurie, held at Dodger Stadium” on Saturday evening – just one day before the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
TBN Chief of Staff Paul Crouch, Jr. will serve as the host for the event that is slated to premier on TBN’s flagship production “Praise The Lord” show on Monday evening and re-airing on Tuesday afternoon.
“We’re honored by the invitation and the opportunity to bring the gospel message of hope and healing to the world as people recall the 10th anniversary of 9/11,” Crouch said.
Laurie, senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, Calif. — one of the largest churches in the United States — will address issues of suffering, mortality and forgiveness in a talk entitled, “Why Tragedy?”
“The message of hope that will be presented at the Harvest outreach at Dodger Stadium is for everyone, from gangbangers to corporate CEOs, and from atheists to the devoutly religious,” Laurie said. “The message of the gospel is especially appropriate during a weekend that will commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11 since it’s a weekend when people are reminded of their own mortality and are seeking answers about why terrible things happen in the world.”
The one-night evangelistic outreach called the “Los Angeles Harvest” will feature music by Christian musicians Chris Tomlin, Kirk Franklin, Jeremy Camp and The Katinas and an interview with special guest Louis Zamperini, a World War II prisoner of war survivor and a former American Olympic long-distance runner (1936, Berlin) who will share his story of faith. The Saturday evening program will conclude with a “virtual” candlelight vigil (via Smart Phone downloads) to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11.
A long-time fixture in Southern California, Harvest Crusades has held events throughout the region for more than two decades, most notably visiting Angel Stadium of Anaheim each year for the past 21 years. This year’s outreach at Angel Stadium took place Aug. 12-14, drawing more than 115,000 people. The Harvest Crusades last brought a full-scale event to Los Angeles in 1996, holding an outreach at Universal Amphitheater that drew more than 22,000 people over four nights.
This special “Praise the Lord” hosted by Paul Crouch Jr. will broadcast “The ‘Los Angeles’ Harvest Crusade at Dodger stadium with Greg Laurie” on Monday at 7 p.m. Pacific Time. The program will re-air on Tuesday at 2 p.m. Pacific Time, and will be archived for 30 days at www.tbn.org/watch-us/archives.
