Pastor Dave Hill
Pastor Dave oversees the CARE Ministry at Harvest. If you have questions about which area of the CARE ministry can best assist you, he can point you in the right direction.
Hospitality Team Leads:
As you walk in to Harvest on Sunday mornings, the hospitality ministry greets you with open doors and friendly faces.
Our hospitality ministry can point you in the right direction, hand you your weekly prayer diary and assist you in finding anything from restrooms to the mezzanine where our middle school and high schoolers meet each week.
Mix & Mingle
In your home, the kitchen is typically where the family gathers. At Harvest, it’s no different. Every Sunday morning, we begin brewing coffee before the first service begins.
If you’re new to Harvest, we invite you to stop by the kitchen and grab a cup of coffee to enjoy during service. We also have some light snacks for those who missed breakfast or just need a “pick me up.”
This is also a popular spot for parents after they drop their kids off in their classrooms. If you haven’t checked us out, stop by next Sunday! The coffee stays hot from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m.

HOME & HOSPITAL VISITATION
Members of our visitation team are available to visit Harvest church members as well as loved ones and friends of our church family who need care when hospitalized due to medical emergency or illness. We also visit individuals in hospice, extended care and assisted living facilities. The goal for each visit is to share words of encouragement, offer prayers of faith and extend the healing touch and love of Christ to every patient and their family.
If you, or someone you know, would like a visit from a member of our visitation team, you can submit an online
Visitation Request Form by clicking here, e-mailing our Visitation Team Leaders or calling our office at (816) 224-9113.
HAMMERS WITH HEARTS
There's a special place in our hearts for singles, widows, the elderly and those in hospice care. For their special life circumstances, we have hands prepared to help. This full-service ministry strives to find "out of the box" ways to serve our church body through acts of service.
Past service projects include lawn maintenance, home repair, house painting, etc.
MEALS ON WHEELS
When we're struggling, we want to know that someone cares. When a person is experiencing loss, illness, hardship or stress, it's a great opportunity to show them that we recognize their need, we care, and we're taking action. One of the simplest ways to bless people is to provide meals.
Harvest Meals on Wheels is made up of people who are willing to cook (or order take out) and deliver meals to those within our church body who need them. Recipients can expect to receive somewhere between 5-10 meals over the course of a few weeks. Not only does it help financially, but it also means less shopping, cooking, and cleaning for the recipient.
Recipients are people within Harvest who have experienced one of the following:
- The birth of a child
- The death of a family member
- Illness, hospitalization, rehab
- The loss of a job
- Any situation where a delivered meal might provide relief
Meals are an easy way to bless someone and show them that people care.
Help Us by Submitting Needs
As Harvest grows, it's becoming more difficult to recognize people's needs. If you've experienced the birth of a baby, a death in the family, a serious health issue, a job loss, or anything similar, please let us know.
We love blessing people this way and we want to help! Sometimes people won't submit their own needs. So if you know of someone who could use some help, please let us know.
