Harvest City’s prophetic ministry teaches, equips, and activates believers in the gift of prophecy, and gives prophetic words of encouragement in the local church and beyond.
Prophetic ministry offers the following benefits:
- Imparts encouragement, strength and comfort to those who receive prophetic ministry.
- Edifies the church.
- Sharpens the believer’s spiritual ears to hear the Holy Spirit speaking to them.
- Releases the body of Christ into their giftings.
- Equips the body of Christ with grace and maturity.
- Brings confirmation to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Harvest City’s approach to prophecy and prophetic ministry is grounded in the New Testament, specifically in 1 Corinthians 14:1-4:
Let love be your highest goal! But you should also desire the special abilities the Spirit gives—especially the ability to prophesy. …one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them. A person who speaks in tongues is strengthened personally, but one who speaks a word of prophecy strengthens the entire church.
There are many misperceptions about prophecy and prophetic ministry. Below is a list of what prophetic ministry is not and what it is.
What it is not
What it is
Harvest City Church’s prophetic ministry is consistent with the standards laid out in the Prophetic Standards Statement, a set of beliefs and guidelines for the operation and function of prophecy in the church.
Receiving Prophetic Ministry
We invite you to come receive personal prophetic ministry from our Harvest City prophetic team. Ministry sessions are offered in person and online monthly. View prophetic ministry events HERE and register to reserve a spot.
Receiving personal prophetic ministry may be what you need to take a step forward in your faith. Consider the following ways that prophetic ministry can help you grow in your faith.
Prophetic Ministry can…
- EmPOWER people to fulfill their destiny
- EmBOLDen people to push into the God-possible
- EnABLE faith-filled thinking
- EnCOURAGE people to break through fear
- EnKINDLE a fire for a move of God
We also offer prophetic ministry to church groups, including life groups, youth groups, young adults’ groups, leadership teams, etc. Before ministering to the group, we offer a short teaching about prophecy and about how to receive a prophetic word. (This can be on a different day or just before the prophetic ministry). Typically, two or three prophetic people prophesy over individuals. In smaller groups, such as a life group, every person (who wants prophecy) will receive prophetic ministry. In larger groups, such as a church service or a youth group, the prophetic people will call forward individuals for whom they feel God is giving them a word. In all situations, the prophecies are about strengthening, encouraging, and/or comforting the church.

Diane Harrison, founding leader emeritus of Harvest City’s prophetic ministry, has many resources for helping you get established in prophetic ministry. In her present role as Prophetic Coordinator for LifeLinks International she works to build prophetic ministry in our church network and numerous other churches, too. Whether you’re looking to develop your personal gifting or build a prophetic team, Diane can help!
“Using Diane Harrison’s Prophetic Team Workbook and the accompanying instructor’s manual as a curriculum and guide, our church developed and launched a well-organized prophetic ministry team in one year. At a recent worship night at River City Church, our team of 18 provided prophetic ministry for 33 people! The excitement and joy in the room was palpable. Drawing from the wealth of her experience, Diane demystifies the gift of prophecy by offering a biblical foundation, structure, and plenty of practical exercises. After just six weeks, our newest group of trainees moved from knowing very little about this gift to actively operating in it. I highly recommend this unique workbook for any church that wants the gift of prophecy to flourish and develop in their congregation.”
