Job Description:

Who We Are

Harvest Bible Fellowship was founded in 2002 to oversee the church-planting mission of Harvest Bible Chapel. We believe healthy things multiply, so we set out not just to plant churches, but to plant church-planting churches. Now, 16 years later, there are over 155 church plants in 16 countries and on 4 continents—representing eight languages located among seven predominant religions. And...we’d love to see your story added to ours. 


What We Do

Through internships and a residency program, we TRAIN church planters to become fruitful Harvest Bible Chapel Senior Pastors and Worship Leaders to draw people toward vertical worship. We PLANT vibrant, high-impact local Harvest Bible Chapels that reproduce themselves, and we replant transitioning churches into Harvest Bible Chapels. We EQUIP pastors and leaders with ongoing ministry training, regional partnerships and global mission opportunities.


How You Can Help

Every pastor is not necessarily a planter—planters will thrive in a more entrepreneurial environment where they all called upon to cast vision and build from the ground up. Additionally, three areas of our assessment process include:



Above reproach • Teachable • Husband to one wife • Not addicted to wine • Temperate • Not antagonistic • Prudent • Uncontentious • Respectable • Free from the love of money • Hospitable • Manage own household • Not a new convert



Herald of God’s Word • Able to Cast Vision • A Connector • A Builder • Shepherds the Flock with Truth & Grace • A Multiplier of Vision, People, Leadership, Ministry & Churches • Undergraduate Degree in Related Field and/or Seminary Training Desired



Bold, expository, application-oriented preaching • Contemporary worship without compromise • Quality discipleship, not a quantity of disciples • Worship, walk with, and work for Christ • Thriving small group ministry • Church-planting churches • Elder-led church government • Complementarian roles • Biblical soul care
