Located on the beautiful island of Guam in the western Pacific Ocean, Harvest Ministries has served God and the people of Micronesia since our founding over three decades ago.
The heart of the ministry is Harvest Baptist Church, a local body of Christians who have met for worship and fellowship ever since our founding. Visit our Church page for more information.
Harvest Baptist Church began in July of 1975 when a handful of people gathered for the first time on a front porch in Mangilao, Guam. Led by missionary pastor Bruce Wring, the church soon moved to its permanent location in Barrigada. Harvest Christian Academy began that fall with a small student body primarily targeting church members. John Lewis became Pastor in 1979, and it was his desire that the church would grow to reflect the multiple nationalities and people groups found on the island.
Over the years the church has developed into a thriving ministry of over 600 on Sunday mornings. The church shares the Gospel with Guam through ministries like Harvest Family Radio, Pacific Rim Christian Camp and the Harvest Bookstore. The church also strives to reach the surrounding Micronesian Islands through the ministry of Harvest Baptist Bible College and across the world through missions outreach.
Harvest Christian Academy now provides a complete college preparatory program for K3-12th grade and enrolls approximately 1000 students each year. Under the leadership of Senior Pastor Marty Herron since 2000, Harvest Baptist Church continues to look for ways to evangelize the lost, equip the soldiers of Christ, and edify the believer.
