Community Starts Here.
We want to help people move out of isolation and into inclusion; out of anonymity and into community; out of independence and into interdependence. We are better together than we are apart. Community Groups provide a safe place for people to make new friendships and start growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

At Harvest Chapel, a Community Group is the best place for sustained life change to occur. In these groups, people study God’s Word and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It’s also where people pray together, care for one another, and are missed if they don’t show up. There is not a way for the staff to personally minister to everyone who attends our church. That’s why we place such emphasis on group life. It’s how we minister effectively. Community Groups are small groups comprised of eight to twelve individuals or five to six married couples that meet at various locations for fellowship, Bible study, prayer, and accountability. They are semester based groups that meet eight to twelve weeks and then take a month off, starting new groups and new topics. We offer Community Groups for college students, married couples, men, and women.

I have been married for 5 years to Raychel and have two of the most adorable children on the planet (Theo and Opal). I may be biased, but not sure. Raychel and I have been part of Harvest Chapel and the community for the past 4 years. I lived in the Philippines for 2.5 years and while there survived a category 5 hurricane (typhoon) with the eye passing right over us. I love soccer, camping, and reading; and I would be an avid napper if I didn’t have children.
