We believe worship at Harvest Church should be marked by intimacy, integrity, accessibility, and passion. Intimacy means our teams and congregation are encouraged to be in close relationship with each other and with God. Integrity means we never act like we are more or less than we are. Accessibility means we play music designed to draw the most amount of people into the deepest level of participation. Passion means we believe that both worship teams and worshipers praise God with their whole lives and are motivated by love.
Our worship ministry is led by Pastor Mikael Heck, who has led worship at churches both nationally, and internationally, as well as being a pastor and missionary. Mikael brings a wide range of ministry experience and passion to the table.
The Word of God talks about being excellent in all that you do, we believe that excellence should be applied to everything, including our production team. Whether you have experience in the audio/visual industry or are interested in serving God and learning something new, we would love to have you join one of our teams!
We believe that every heart that helps prepare for worship on Sunday morning is incredibly important, whether on stage or off!
We are committed to providing a fun, safe, loving environment for children to learn about the amazing love of God. Tender, loving care is provided for our littlest ones in a safe, welcoming environment, while exciting, interactive Bible stories, hands-on projects and worship are available for the older ones.
We love our kids and have a huge desire to see them grow in their love for and knowledge of God. Kristi Schwisow and her team are incredibly passionate about giving the kids a basic understanding of who Jesus is and how they can have a personal relationship with Him every day.

It has been said that “you don’t get a second chance at a first impression.” Our team of ushers and greeters strive to create a welcoming environment for those who attend our services through offering a warm greeting and paying attention to details and needs. Our goal is to help people feel comfortable and at home in our church family.

"...pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results." James 5:16
We believe that prayer changes everything! Our prayer team is passionate about seeing people encouraged, set free, and equipped for their daily lives. We have a prayer team available every Sunday in front of the stage in the main Sanctuary, and in the back of the Loft(our cafe and overflow venue). You can also send in a prayer request via the form below, or on the AG Harvest App, and reach a chain of prayer warriors who want to partner with you in prayer! We also host a prayer meeting every Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. to pray over current events, people in the church, our ministry as a church, and for the kingdom of God at large!
