Harvest Leadership Development (HoLD) exists to help fulfill the disciple-making mission of the Church through the theologically rich teaching of God’s Word and the practical, culturally competent training of God’s people.


Harvest “holds” firm to the command of Jesus in which He calls us to go out, baptize, and teach ALL that he has commanded (Matthew 28:16-20; 1 Corinthians 15:1-11).

We must take seriously this ordained mission to preserve and propel the saints through the teaching of sound doctrine (Titus 2:1) and equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. This builds up of the body of Christ, which is the Church (Ephesians 4:12).

HoLD is the ministry within Harvest Bible Chapel that is specifically tasked with providing theologically robust education and leadership training to prepare the current and next generation of Church leaders that will be sent out to plant and renew churches around the world.



Harvest Institute will offer classes taught centrally and/or locally by our pastor theologians. The courses offer each member of the church the opportunity to unpack the depths of God’s doctrines in order to build our faith in God and His Word. The Institute will equip you to hold firm against the possibility of false doctrine by refreshing the singularly inspired truths that God has left behind for us to study in order to persevere against the flesh, the world and the enemy as we live a holy, set apart life as witness to the Spirit in us.


Harvest Internships is the perfect opportunity for further development of your theological foundation by working at your church. As you grow in knowledge, it must be applied into the body of Christ. Harvest Internships will provide multiple venues at Harvest to put into practice the knowledge you have acquired whether at the Institute or any of our local Bible Colleges and Seminaries.


Harvest Pastors is the final development stage for those that seek to lead their own church or help with an existing church. This final four-year program will equip you with a Masters of  Divinity, laying a firm theological foundation for you to go out and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching all that our Lord Jesus as commanded.


Get started this Fall. We plan to add courses as we are able with each new semester or 10-week period.
