Our Mission & Vision
Our vision and mission is to cultivate a lifestyle of love
Cultivating a lifestyle of love, by introducing all people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, to teach and disciple them to live a Christian life, to build a godly family, to send workers into all the world spreading the good news of Jesus Christ.
Our vision is to be a fellowship of believers, trained disciples of Jesus Christ, to minister to God through praise and worship while meeting the needs of our community, nation and world for the Kingdom of God.
Mission & Purpose
We are here to work together to overcome life’s struggles by letting our love for our Lord and each other be evident in all that we do. As we worship our Heavenly Father together, we allow Him to refresh us like the refreshing dew on the grass each morning.
Each day we make the choice who to serve, where to go, and what to do. God has a special purpose for your life that includes peace, hope and a future. We believe we are here to help you succeed in that purpose by connecting with you and building meaningful relationships that last.
“God is shaking Heaven and Earth that He might fulfill Numbers 14:21, “But truly, as I live, and as all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.” He is preparing you and me to be the containers for the release of His glory. God is a Holy God; He is cleansing those He has chosen so we can be poured out for His Name Sake.“

Who We Are
Our Leadership Team
Our leadership consists of elders appointed by the senior pastor along with deacons and board members elected by the congregation in accordance to our church bylaws. Aside from the governance of Harvest Fellowship, the leadership team is most concerned with the spiritual health of each and every person who attends as well as looking after physical and practical needs of the church.
Our Pastor: Eugene Weaver
Pastor Eugene has answered the call of God on his life to serve as the associate pastor of our church in 1980 along-side of his father, Rev. Adam Weaver. In 1987, he became the senior pastor and has been leading our church since that time. His desire is to hear the heart of God for the people and our community. Learning to walk in the Kingdom of God and live as son of God in the likeness of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirt is at the heart of his message to the church. His wife Clara serves behind the scenes using her gifts of administration and hospitality.
