GO Conference 2022

Sunday, October 9 - Wednesday, October 12

Serving the gospel to a dying world.

Matthew 28.18 is a clarion call for the age in which we live. “GO” Jesus said, “and teach all
nations… teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you” And that is what Harvest Missions has been doing faithfully now these many years. Planting churches and making disciples around the globe is what this year’s conference is about.

Join us these four nights to hear about all God is doing with the many missionaries and ministries that our church supports. Be praying that by the leading of his Spirit, and with the power and truth of his Word, this conference would propel us into 2023 on a trajectory that will have most effective impact for the Kingdom of God and his glory.

Tom Brockmeyer, Missions Pastor

When he graduated, the church asked him to be their full-time pastor where he would go on to pastor for 13 years. During his Pastoral period, McDonald was elected as the Vice Chairman of GCMS. Later he was elected Chairman where he would serve diligently for 17 years. In 2019 he was appointed as Director of Restoration Ministry under GCMS of Zambia. He started helping the Bible Baptist Churches of Lusaka in Discipleship and Doctrine until his calling to Nkonde where he would help lead Good Tidings Christian Schools and Ministries where he is currently.

– Charles Spurgeon

How Will You GO?

A lot of churches have a missions conference that is a conference “about missions.” What we are having is a conference “with missionaries.” We want you to rub elbows with the men and women on the field. We want to put them in front of your kids, so that our children get to see someone called, sent, and sold-out to the mission, living the book of Acts in front of them.

  • Why is it worth it to have your kids here on a school night? Because we will emphasize to your children, “God exists” – even in the world you are learning about in school (Hungary, Africa, Asia, Latin America, Serbia).
  • This is how to stay out of the Laodicean stream (Rev 3:14-17), and keep from falling into the lukewarm flow.

Let’s not just talk about missions, or have “missions speakers.” Let’s meet, mingle and listen to missionaries for four nights, and serve the gospel to a dying world together!

Pastor Alan Shelby

Harvest Teams

PURPOSE: You do not need to add evangelism to your life, you need to let it transform what is already there.

Evangelism is not natural for most people but the beautiful thing about our Harvest Teams is that the goal is not evangelism, the goal is to keep the conversation going. 

Friends (testimony) —> Faith (salvation) —> Fellowship (discipleship)

You will meet with a group of regularly to share ideas, opportunities and testimony to help you transition the lost from friendship with you, to faith in Christ, to fellowship with us. 


Prayer Support Groups

Committing to pray for our missionaries is one of the most impactful ways to support them, and a way that you can be involved in what God is doing, both across our nation and across the globe.


Mission Central

We have a mission of “every-member ministry.” There is no greater time than now to draw your family into missions and ministry with you. These are the very circumstances that create just what we need to reach our society.

Join our Mission Central team to engage every member of Harvest in the mission of the Great Commission on any level.

Let us equip you to build on-ramps in missions, through evangelism, trip training, church planting, and planning all the various aspects of our members’ involvement in the mission right here, from here to Judea, Judea to Samaria, and among the least reached at the uttermost.

Mission Trips

You do not need to worry about your ability, God is only looking for your availability. Our Mission Central Team will be sure you are equipped with all the necessary training and tools to make each trip work for your good and God’s glory.
