In the end, Greg LaurieÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs story is all about God. The God who found a kid who was lost in a life of neglect and chaos, the God who saved him and the God who raised Greg up to help other lost souls find fresh hope, real purpose and lasting peace.
There are a lot of spiritual memories out there, but you've never seen one like this. Like many who came of age in the 1960s, Greg Laurie was on a search for the meaning of life. Born out of wedlock to an alcoholic mother who married seven times, Greg started drinking, partying and taking drugs to escape the dysfunction of his family. But his life was suddenly changed when he encountered a group of young Christians on his high school campus in Newport Beach, Calif. Greg has since authored more than 35 books and started what became one of the first mega-churches in the United States (Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, Calif.) as well as a far-reaching ministry (Harvest Crusades) that today touches many who are searching for meaning, just as he once was. In this film, Greg opens a window on his life and shares about his uncertainty and disappointments, his healing and growth. He remembers the beginnings of a ministry that has touched millions of people and relives the ups, downs, sudden drops and blind corners ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å and he invites you along for the ride!
