Job Description:
Harvest Church (Harvest) is a member of the Western Conference of the Evangelical Church with a strong vision and track record for reaching the unchurched. In its 10 year history, Harvest has become renowned for impact within the community. Harvest is a church known in the community for living out its faith in tangible ways.

The average attendance across all campuses exceeds 2,400, with the majority of the church having been previously unchurched.
Harvest has four campuses. The main campus is housed in a unique and useful facility built on 28 acres in The Heights area of Billings, Montana. The current worship venue seats 625 in four weekend experiences (two on Saturday and two on Sunday) for a maximum capacity of 2,500 adults at the Heights Campus. An additional 1,260 seats are available at other Harvest campuses totaling a maximum church wide attendance of 3,760 over 10 experiences at the four campuses. The entire campus venue carries a simple, inviting, and unique theme achieved through the clear vision casting of the staff.

The trademark of Harvest is to be a church that matters. A regular saying in the halls of Harvest is to be the kind of church that if Harvest ceased to exist, the most ardent critic of Christianity would be “bummed”. Harvest prides itself on being known as a church who lives out what they say they believe and living life as though Jesus were living through them. In each community where Harvest has a campus, the DNA of making an impact in the local community is tangible.

Harvest is also known for a welcoming spirit, under girded by solid biblical values in a contemporary setting. From the matching climbing walls in the lobby to compelling environments of the contemporary weekend worship, Harvest strives to be culturally relevant. Harvest is committed to reaching those far from God. That's the core of their simple vision, the reason for their ministry plan most aptly expressed in their mission: "Living Life as though Jesus was living through you".
