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.
In an interview with Dr. James Dobson, Pastor Greg Laurie recounts the moment he learned his son had died. It's a candid look at overwhelming pain, but how God meets us in our darkest hour.
"Disciple" is not only a noun, it's a verb! We're to disciple others; show them the way. But Pastor Greg Laurie points out that isn't some burdensome obligation. It's simply allowing ourselves to rub off on someone else!
Whose job is it to preach the Gospel? Preachers? Yes! But Pastor Greg Laurie reminds us we're all to be preachers of the Gospel! Listen for an inspiring look at the privilege and responsibility of sharing our faith, along with some practical pointers to help us get there.
