Global Impact

Introducing... Global Impact

As He was ending His time on Earth, Jesus gave the church one of its main reasons for being — the Great Commission. In it, Christ challenges us to take His message and live it out locally, regionally and “…to the remotest part of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

That’s why “Global Impact” has become the umbrella under which all of Harvest City’s missions activities are organized. It is not so much a stand-alone ministry as it is a church-wide coordination of outreach efforts. We recently added the tag slogan‘Together on Mission’ to the Global Impact title, and can’t think of a better way to show that unity is key with each other and that we are here to get behind !

Since 2007, using the Global Impact approach Harvest City has seen amazing increase in its passion for missions, its financial contributions and its effectiveness in mission fields around the world.

The Global Impact strategy is simple: Rather than scattering missions giving to every request that comes along, Harvest City forms strategic partnerships with particular missions workers locally, nationally and internationally. Prayer, hands-on support and financial resources are then focused on making those partners as fruitful as they can be.

It is a bold and far-reaching way of doing missions, yet intensely personal and relational. For example, one missionary partner had this to say about her experience with Global Impact:

We were made to feel more than welcome — accepted and loved, even spoilt. [Global Impact] has personally ministered to me more than words could say.

Global Impact Celebration

Harvest City’s Global Impact Celebration (a.k.a. GIC), organized by the church’s Global Impact team, is the annual rallying point for our ongoing outreach endeavors. It’s a multi-day, life-changing cultural festival with something for everyone. 

2024 April 26-28, our 18th annual GIC was such a powerful weekend – from the Kick Off Celebration on Friday night all the way to the Sunday morning service God was speaking to us through our partners. With “Home” as the theme, the testimonies of what God is doing to make space for people and invite them home in our city, nation, and around the world were inspiring and challenging.

Faith Commitment Offering

The Faith Commitment Offering (FCO) is taken up online and at the Global Impact Celebration solely for the coming year's Global Impact budget.
The FCO is open online NOW. Please prayerfully consider what you can give through a one‑time or monthly contribution.
