The Harvest Conference has embraced our mission and created a variety of ministries to extend the reach and share God's love with their local and global communities. There are numerous ways you can pull up your sleeves and get involved in Kingdom work. If you would like to get involved with one of these ministries or have a ministry idea of your own contact us Here.
Below we spotlight three of those ministries.
The Harvest Conference introduces individuals with special needs to the light of Christ through God’s Choice Ministries. God’s Choice is a church planting initiative that focuses on ministering to individuals with special needs, their families, and their caregivers through weekly services that include worship, crafts, and activities. This ministry, which has grown exponentially since its inception in 2010, is now hosted at nine Harvest Conference churches and six additional churches in other Free Methodist conferences and denominations. God’s Choice Ministries continues to grow, and we are excited to see God work in the lives of so many.
3rd Step Recovery Church is helping people partner with Jesus in their recovery from all sorts of addictions. 3rd Step is part church service/AA meeting and is a big family help each person achieve health spiritually and physically. The church is lead by Pastor Raeanne Barlow.
Operation 6:12 is a gateway to a life with purpose. A place where it’s OK to be not OK. A sober living environment consisting of a brotherhood of Men & Sisterhood of Women whose willingness and determination to help one another is what sets 6:12 apart. A place where you can gain true freedom from any of life’s struggles through Jesus Christ. An organization I am blessed to be a part of and fortunate enough to call my family. – Matthew Sedjo
City on the Hills
We have all been commissioned to spread the Gospel, it is the responsibility of every believer, which is why we have partnered with the Church Development Network to expand the Kingdom of God! Through Biblical teachings and motivated mentors we help you to fulfill this command with the dream and vision God has placed on your heart!
Pastor Emmanuel "Manu" De Maleprade is one such mentor, he and his wife Emma are leaders of Cornerstone church in Pittsburgh, Pa, and experienced church planters. Together they have one son, and are heading up the Harvest Conference's Church planting initiative called "City on the Hills, Church Network"
Pastor Manu brings both experience and energy to his church planting efforts as he plants churches himself and mentors others to plant churches in Western Pa, WV, and Eastern Ohio, with a strong focus on the city of Pittsburgh and urban ministry. With years of experience planting churches in France, Manu and Emma are fulfilling God's calling over their lives here by continuing that multiplication.
