We thank God for what He’s doing in our church, even in 2020. We appreciate all of the volunteers who served those in need in our church and surrounding communities by providing food and meals at Thanksgiving. We wanted to give you a few updates.
Lead Teaching Pastor Search Update
Our search team is restructured and ready to go. The team will consist of just eight members this time as opposed to the previous team that was nearly twice as large. Four elders will be on the team with the remaining members comprised of staff members or volunteers.
The search firm, Vanderbloemen, has indicated that things overall are slow this time of year. They expect to make more progress in the new year. You can read the latest on the search on this page: https://harvestbiblechapel.org/search/
In the meantime, we are trusting that God will provide His people for our church at His time. We are also thankful for our teaching team including Pastor Tommy Creutz, Pastor Eddie Hoagland, Pastor Jeff Thompson, and Dr. Mike Vanlaningham.
We are encouraged to report progress that has been made as we have sought to improve the bylaws of Harvest Bible Chapel. We look to have our bylaw work to be wrapped up by the end of the first quarter of 2021. We invite your prayers for wisdom for us as we finalize this important document for the direction of our church.
Additionally, we have been hard at work seeking both biblical alignment and ministry effectiveness for the Deacon Ministry of Harvest. The reboot of this ministry is planned to be finished by the close of 2020. We would appreciate your prayers as we continue this work.
If you have questions or we can serve you in any way as your elders, we invite you to reach out to an elder from your campus or send an email to gro.lepahcelbibtsevrahnull@sredle.
You are loved,
The Elders of Harvest Bible Chapel
