Harvest America, Greg Laurie's major evangelism event to take place in late summer, will be joined by three nationwide ministries in a live simulcast to hundreds of churches and venues.
"We are excited to join efforts with these three ministries to allow even more people the opportunity to participate in Harvest America and to provide them with resources for growing their faith," said Harvest Crusades Executive Director John Collins, according to The Christian Post.

Laurie's annual Harvest Crusade stadium events have been attended by 4.4 million people over the last 22 years.
Lifeway, NavPress and Global Media Outreach will partner to promote the event, sponsor hosts, and provide informational resources for the Aug. 26 event, held at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California.
This adds to the nationwide churches and venues that had already committed to the event, which amount to more than 900.
This time around, the event is set to take the evangelism effort to the next level, with Lifeway hosting free simulcasts and webcasts, NavPress makinga follow-up discipleship curriculum, and Global Media Outreach to provide videos and live streaming.
On June 13, Greg Laurie and his wife Cathe conducted their monthly webinar, where they talked about Harvest America prayer initiatives.
Those who want to pray for the event can sign up for "The 60 Days Around the Clock Prayer," which will kick off on July 1 at pray.harvestamerica.com
Furthermore, all 50 states are participating in an online "Prayer Map" and "Prayer Cloud" in the past months, according to organizers. The Prayer Cloud has the names of nearly 40,000 people that have been listed by 6,000 people who would like to see them receive salvation, reported CP.
Pray America journal, created by Cathe Laurie, who serves as the event prayer director, was introduced as a tool to record prayers and "help effectively pray for Harvest America."
"I think one of the reasons people don't pray is that they think that prayer doesn't make a difference. Prayer is necessary. As we look back on our journals we see how God answered our prayers. Prayer does make a difference and you will begin to see that as you journal your prayer life," Cathe Laurie said.
