The program offers viewers a look into Laurie’s compelling life story: from his childhood, raised by an alcoholic mother who was married and divorced seven times, to his decision to follow Jesus Christ on his high school campus, to his expansive 30-year public ministry, and finally, to the heartbreak of his eldest son’s unexpected death in 2008.
Lost Boy: The Next Chapter has won the Best Documentary or Audience Favorite award at eight international film festivals. Greg Laurie stated, “Lost Boy is a story of redemption, a story of how God can turn things around if you let Him and I hope my story will inspire people to do that.”
