Watch Live Now! A message by Pastor Jonathan Laurie

Richard Garcia

At the age of 30, my life was a mess. My wife, Terry, went to Harvest one Sunday night, and when she came home, she looked different to me. Her light beamed so brightly that I wanted what she had! I joined her at church the following Sunday and went forward, along with my two daughters, to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior on July 15, 1990.

Immediately, we began serving together within the church. The New Believer ministry was the first ministry that I had the honor of being involved in and still hold dear to my heart. Over the years, I have also had the privilege to be a part of and oversee various ministries such as Crusades, Young Adults, Harvest at Home and the Connection and Serve Team. I have a deep-rooted passion and heart for volunteers, unity, and team building. My wife and I love coming alongside newer and seasoned believers and cultivating their love for Jesus, while doing life alongside them. My prayer and hope for Harvest is that all people would come to know Jesus as Lord and that we would do all things to bring glory to our Father.
