We’re Looking For a Passion that is Rare.

Our church planters must have:

 

Character

Above reproach • Able to teach • Husband to one wife • Not addicted to wine • Temperate • Not antagonistic • Prudent • Uncontentious • Respectable • Free from the love of money • Hospitable • Manage own household • Not a new convert

Titus 1:6-9 ESV


Alignment

At Harvest, we are distinctly committed to:

Bold, expository, application-oriented preaching • Contemporary worship without compromise • Quality discipleship, not a quantity of disciples • Worship, walk with, and work for Christ • Thriving small group ministry • Church-planting churches • Elder-led church government • Complementarian roles • Biblical soul care


Competence

Preacher • Shepherd • Manager • Builder

 

From our first meeting to the day you stand before
the members of a new church, you receive a steady process of
assessment, training, coaching, and care.

  1. 1

    Assess

    Church-plant candidates must demonstrate character, alignment, and competence. It’s a high calling, and we don’t take this step lightly.

  2. 2

    Train

    Church planters enter a four month residency at the Harvest Training Center for Church Planting. With over 40 different instructors and Senior Pastors, we instill Harvest DNA, sharpen preaching, strengthen leadership, and teach you how to successfully launch a church.

  3. 3

    Coach

    Having a coach is a critical success factor in planting a church. Every church planter gets a coach to support and direct until local elders are installed.

  4. 4

    Care

    We mentor and equip Harvest senior pastors, ministry leaders, and church plants through resourcing, coaching, and various high-level training opportunities.
