“A Rush of Hope,” a cinematic crusade from Greg Laurie and Harvest ministries will release on over 100 streaming channels September 4 through September 7, 2020. The event will take the place of the annual Harvest Crusade which was canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Created in partnership with the Erwin Brothers’ Kingdom Story Company, “A Rush of Hope” will include encouraging messages from Greg Laurie, outtakes from faith-based films such as I Still Believe and Woodlawn, and performances by artists such as Jeremy Camp, for KING & COUNTRY and MercyMe.
“Our life is like a movie,” says the voice of Laurie in the trailer. “It has a beginning, middle and end.”
“We all have questions about this movie that we are in. Is this movie a tragedy? Is it a love story? Or is it a comedy even? Do we win in the end? Why am I here? What is the meaning of my life? And what happens after I die?
“There are answers to these questions,” Laurie says.
“A Rush of Hope” is Harvest’s creative response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced the ministry to cancel its in-person crusades scheduled this year at Anaheim’s Angel Stadium. The film’s release date was originally announced for August, but it has been moved to September 4 through the 7.
“We’ve never done anything like this before,” Laurie said. “The Covid-19 pandemic has completely changed all our plans, but it has opened an incredible window of opportunity for the gospel. Now, more than ever, people are hungry for something the world cannot give them. This cinematic crusade is designed to reach as many people as possible and help them answer the deepest questions of their hearts.”
“A Rush of Hope” will be available to stream on the following platforms:
