Our Team

This page introduces you to Harvest City’s team of elders, deacon board, and staff members.

Actually, this is a team within a team because in the widest sense, “our team” includes our entire congregation!

Lead Pastors – Joel & Angela Wells

Joel and Angela have been part of Harvest City Church since childhood. They were married in 1997 and have three lovely daughters. Angela is on HCC staff, serves in multiple ministries, and enjoys playing and coaching volleyball.

Joel has a Bachelor of Education degree, and taught high school for 11 years. In 2010 he transitioned to Lead Pastor of Harvest City, succeeding his father, Dave.

Joel is a very engaging preacher/teacher with a down-to-earth willingness to be vulnerable. His passion to see the lost saved and the kingdom of God advanced is infectious. He is also blessed with a strong prophetic gift. Ministry opportunities have taken Joel around the world. He enjoys golf and coaching basketball in his ‘spare’ time!

Apostolic Pastors – Dave & Linda Wells

Apostolic Pastors Dave & Linda Wells

After over a decade of planting churches and Christian schools in Manitoba, Dave & Linda moved their family to Regina in 1987 to pastor Harvest City Church. They led Harvest City for 23 years and continue to live and base their ministry here leading a Life Group and various small groups.

Dave is Leader Emeritus of LifeLinks International, giving apostolic input, training and guidance to numerous churches and pastors all over the world.
