My church is going and everyone seems so excited but what does everyone else know or think about him. Is he a faithful gospel preacher or does he have a easy believism gospel?
I heard him years and years ago in my early Christian walk and was helped by his messages. There was not easy-believism.Some of his sermons are available here: http://www.oneplace.com/ministries/a-new-beginning/
Greg Laurie is a good brother. He has a called to reach out to those that do not know God. I feel he has a good ministry and is a precious brother. Some might not agree with his techniques but God is using Him.Discipleship is the next step needed by others which he really doesn't do as much.

Discipleship is the next step needed by others which he really doesn't do as much.
The way it works with Harvest Crusades is that the hundreds of local churches that come together to put on the event are responsible for the discipleship of new believers. (For those who don't know, Harvest only goes where the local churches come together to invite them.)Basically, every new believer that comes down is counseled by a volunteer follow-up worker and also fills out a card with their contact information. That card gets sorted out to one of the churches in their area, and the church gets in touch with them a few days later to welcome them to the body of Christ and help get them plugged into a local church body and discipled.I think this is a very biblical model since his church in California really can't effectively disciple someone on the other side of the country--that's the role that the local church is called to serve.
Well it is good to see they do that.
