Harvest: Greg Laurie is committed to "Knowing God and making him known." Outreach is a very large part of the realization of this vision. Pastor Greg Laurie's daily radio program A New Beginning, is broadcast on more than 500 radio outlets daily across the nation and internationally. Harvest Crusades, large-scale evangelistic outreaches, have been held throughout the US, and in Canada, New Zealand and Australia since 1990.

Greg Laurie is the senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, and Harvest Orange County in Irvine, California. The church is committed to this vision locally by following the Acts chapter 2 model of teaching, worship, prayer, fellowship, evangelism, and communion. The Lord has faithfully added to the number and it now has one of the largest congregations in America. 

The Christian Research Institute exists to provide Christians worldwide with carefully researched information and well-reasoned answers that encourage them in their faith and equip them to intelligently represent it to people influenced by ideas and teachings that assault or undermine orthodox, biblical Christianity. In carrying out this mission, CRI's strategy is expressed by the acronym E-Q-U-I-P:

The "E" in EQUIP represents the word essentials. CRI is committed to the maxim: "In essentials unity, in nonessentials liberty, and in all things charity."

The "Q" in the acronym EQUIP represents the word questions. In addition to focusing on essentials, CRI answers people's questions regarding cults, culture, and Christianity.

The "U" in the word EQUIP represents the word user-friendly. As much as possible, CRI is committed to taking complex issues and making them understandable and accessible to the lay Christian.

This brings us to the "I" in EQUIP, which stands for integrity. Recall Paul's admonition: "Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers."

Finally, the "P" in the acronym EQUIP represents the word para-church. CRI is deeply committed to the local church as the God-ordained vehicle for equipping, evangelism, and education.
Many of our lives have traveled a long and winding path with U-turns and detours along the way. Pastor Greg Laurie says, could it be that all those experiences have prepared you perfectly for what God wants you to do next? We'll trace the life of Queen Esther of Persia and how God used her in a surprising way.
Esther became queen of Persia . . . not for her own glory, but so God could use her. Pastor Greg Laurie points out maybe God has you where you are, "for such a time as this."
We may have the impression that the great men and women of the Bible worn born great . . . and stayed great. The truth is, most were unremarkable people . . . until they made themselves available to God! Pastor Greg Laurie shows us a case in point from the story of Esther.
