Short Term Mission Opportunities
Harvest Church seeks to strategically send short term teams around the world in partnership with indigenous leadership to catalyze Gospel-centered disciple-making movements around the globe. We encourage every member of Harvest Church to join us for a short term trip in your first 24 months as a member of the Harvest family. Several are in partnership with Downline Ministries, CRU, Orphanos, Catalyst Missions, & CMDA. For more information about any of the trips, contact Steve Winstead (firstname.lastname@example.org). Look at our guidelines for Support Raising and Preparing for a Short Term Trip.
Global Missions Philosophy
Globally our primary missions strategy is to train indigenous church leadership around the world in Gospel-centrality, Bible and theology, and biblical disciple-making through conferences offered on short term trips. Harvest Church believes it is important to collaborate with indigenous leadership in an empowering partnership that seeks to avoid unhealthy dependence. It is important for local churches to be primarily supported by the local congregation as this allows believers to experience the deep benefits from such a community.
Harvest has many members that are also involved internationally in medical, evangelistic, construction, and mercy ministries. We are thankful for these endeavors as well, and strive for all international partnerships to be healthy expressions of the glory of God and the truth of gospel!
We also support the sending of believers for longer term stints to work alongside believers in countries with a healthy gospel witness and to pioneer efforts in countries where there is not a viable gospel witness. Our members may choose to serve with a number of different agencies with which we partner, and in many cases we encourage believers to serve internationally in the marketplace, medical community, and in educational endeavors for the strategic advancement of the Gospel.
Our global partnerships often involve sending members, supporting missionaries, strategic relationships, financial support, prayer, and awareness.
