Jesus Revolution Official Trailer

Set in the 1970s, young Greg Laurie (Joel Courtney) is searching for all the right things in all the wrong places: until he meets Lonnie Frisbee (Jonathan Roumie), a charismatic hippie street preacher. Together with Pastor Chuck Smith (Kelsey Grammer), they open the doors of Smith’s languishing church to an unexpected revival of radical and newfound love, leading to what TIME Magazine dubbed a Jesus Revolution. This is not as much a faith-based movie as it is a historical telling of a story about faith and revival. It brings to life the historical events of the late 60 and early 70s that lead to “The Jesus Movement.”

Greg Laurie is the senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship with campuses in California and Hawaii and a featured speaker of public evangelistic events called Harvest Crusades. In 2020, and in partnership with Kingdom Story Company, Laurie premiered his first-ever cinematic crusade, A Rush of Hope, viewed by over 2 million people in its opening weekend. Laurie’s other films include Steve McQueen: American Icon, Hope for Hurting Hearts, and Lost Boy. Laurie is also the host of nationally syndicated television and radio programs and the author of over 70 books, including Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon. For more information, visit
