Award-Winning Story of a Pastor’s Struggles and Victories Now Available on DVD Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries Chronicles His Journey from Abuse to Redemption in LOST BOY
Tulsa, OK (July 9, 2010) – Pastor Greg Laurie’s biographical documentary, Lost Boy: The Next Chapter, is available on DVD today from film distributor Lukas Media, a faith-based distribution company based in Tulsa, OK.
The international release of Lost Boy: The Next Chapter is strongly supported by Harvest Ministries, Pastor Greg Laurie’s international organization. Says Laurie, “Lost Boy offers people a chance to learn about my unusual life story and how God intervened in the life of a mixed-up teenager and brought hope and purpose. I thank God for this additional exposure and, hopefully, further spreading the message of hope that people need to hear so desperately today!”
Lost Boy has experienced award-winning success at festivals around the world, receiving Best Documentary at the 2009 International Christian Film Festival, 2009 Riverside International Film Festival and 2009 International Film Festival South Africa.
Recently, Lost Boy was accepted to the LifeWay-sponsored Gideon Film Festival and screened as the headliner on June 4, 2010 in Ridgecrest, NC. The Director of Harvest Resources, Gary Zelasko, was present for a special Q&A session with audience members. The documentary will also show at the International Christian Film Festival 2010 (UK) on August 4, 2010.
