Laurie said on social media that the church saw a whopping 1.3 million people join him online for the service — and that 11,207 people made decisions to accept Christ.

The preacher credited President Donald Trump for the massive numbers, as Trump tweeted a note on Saturday that he would be watching and invited others to do the same.

"Thanks for joining us, @realdonaldtrump," Laurie wrote, speaking directly to the president via social media. "A lot of new people visited us because of your tweet!"

"Palm Sunday is the beginning of a Holy week for many people of Faith and a great day to lift our voices in Prayer," Trump wrote. "I will be tuning into Pastor @greglaurie at @harvestorg Church in Riverside, California tomorrow at 11:00 A.M. Eastern."
