Greg Laurie to Speak During Proclaim 18 Closing Gala

Greg LauriePastor Greg Laurie will speak during the Closing Gala at Proclaim 18, the NRB International Christian Media Convention that will be held February 27-March 2, 2018, in Nashville, Tennessee.

Laurie is the senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship with campuses in California and Hawaii. Laurie is the featured speaker of the Harvest Crusades – large-scale evangelistic outreaches that have been held throughout the U.S. and in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia since 1990. Laurie’s daily radio program, A New Beginning, is broadcast on more than 800 radio outlets daily across the nation and internationally. He has also authored more than 70 books, including an autobiographical work titled Lost Boy.

More recently, Laurie’s Harvest Ministries partnered with the filmmakers behind Moms’ Night Out and Woodlawn to bring the feature film Steve McQueen: American Icon to the big screen. He also wrote a book on McQueen, in which he traces the wooly geography of the actor’s life, relationships, career, and spiritual journey. Both the book and the film were released last year.

“We are excited to have Greg Laurie close out Proclaim 18, our association’s 75th annual Convention,” said Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, president & CEO of the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB). “In addition to being a compelling, cutting-edge, and faithful preacher, Greg is a Southern California native who is perfect in transitioning us from this Convention to the next one in Anaheim, where we’ll kick off celebrations for our association’s 75th anniversary year.”

Other speakers at Proclaim 18 include Vice President Mike Pence; ministry leaders Rick Warren, Kay Arthur, David Jeremiah, Luis Palau, and Billy Kim; actors Jim Caviezel and Dennis Quaid, and filmmaker Alex Kendrick; radio talk show hosts Larry Elder, Eric Metaxas, and Dennis Prager; thought leaders Phil Cooke, Ed Stetzer, and Joel C. Rosenberg; and many more.

In addition, musical artists will include MercyMe, Fernando Ortega, and Michael W. Smith. The emcees of the Convention will be twin brothers, authors, and entrepreneurs David and Jason Benham.

Proclaim 18 will take place February 27-March 2, 2018, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, while NRB’s award-winning Exposition – featuring around 200 exhibitors – will be open February 28-March 2.
