FOR A TIME OF
MUCH NEEDED REST
BODY OF CHRIST
So that all
Harvest Foundation gave us the opportunity to find community.
In this community we found healing but in loneliness we found sickness.
Thanks to that our marriage is stronger and ready to walk in our calling with boldness.

" Harvest Foundation simply wants to minister to Pastors so they can continue to lead and pastor Jesus' church. No bait and switch; just come and enjoy your wife and rest. Yes, other pastors are resting too, but stay to yourself or discover a friendship for life. Either way, you will be blessed by people who love you and want to encourage you.."

What does Harvest Foundation Offer?
Small Groups for Pastors
Ministry can be odd sometimes. Pastors will minister, counsel, encourage, and assist people, only to be slandered, ghosted, attacked, and forgotten by the same people they helped. But that is part of what God called you to experience. If you want to surround yourself with others in that position, join a small group for pastors.
Small Groups for Spouses
Being a pastor's spouse comes with both joy and sorrow. Our small groups for spouses are set up to be a place where you can both be encouraged by someone or be encouraging to someone. You will never be alone in ministry ever again.
Harvest Foundation invites pastoral couples to beautiful resorts and provides an opportunity for them to rest and connect with others who answered the very same call. If you are a senior/lead or campus pastor and would like to join the Harvest Network, click the link below!
Harvest Foundation is working on a sabbatical program that we hope to rollout in the near future. Sabbaticals are not 30-40 days free from work. It is a time of rest and seeking the Lord for what is to come. Stay tuned, as we will be excited to finally introduce this to all of you in the Harvest Foundation Network!
