What a night! Wow. There was an over-capacity crowd, for the second evening in a row, at the final night of the 20th Annual SoCal Harvest Crusade. The all time attendance hit the 4 million mark. Chris Tomlin was unbelievable. Thousands responded to the simple preaching of the gospel by Greg Laurie. The night ended with a fireworks celebration as Chris did another worship set.
