Our Mission, Team & Story

Our Mission

Our mission is to glorify God by making healthy disciples of Jesus Christ. We are devoted to teaching The Bible, to the power of prayer, to communion around Jesus Christ and to real fellowship with one another. Our worship services, small groups fellowship, kids and student ministries, men's and women's ministries, outreach, missions and church planting are all grounded in these goals. We pray and work toward more people knowing Jesus and actually walking with Him during our time here on earth. We are relieving groans in our City by serving the homeless, refugees, prisoners, seniors and moms choosing life. The gospel is that we are sinners bound for hell but God sent Jesus so that by believing in Him we would not perish but have eternal life. Jesus has welcomed us and we look forward to welcoming you!

Our Story

Harvest Raleigh began in a North Raleigh living room in 2008, launching publicly as a church in September of 2009. We think you will find Harvest to be an authentic community of Christians really growing in faith in Jesus. Our heart is to glorify God by making healthy disciples of Jesus. Pastor Mike preaches from the Bible, applying it to life. We gather during weeknights in small groups to fellowship with one another help one another along in the faith and life. We serve in the church and in the community to make a difference in people’s lives. We’re sending mission teams overseas to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. We are seeing God change lives in big ways and little ways.
