“..because the fields are ripe!”
Jesus’ prayer to the Father for “oneness” in the Body has been further answered as the Holy Spirit has partnered us with the brethren locally and in other parts of the world. Harvest Vision Ministries exists to bring biblical unity to the body of Christ at home and abroad and to make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Harvest Vision Ministries is a three-fold reconciliatory ministry currently serving needs in the USA, Mexico, and Central Africa. The ministry is to help coordinate and be good stewards of the workers and the gifts and resources that God has given each one to build His Kingdom and prepare the Church for the return of Jesus Christ. The ministry will expand to cover other areas in the United States and other countries as the Lord directs.
Our ministry offers many opportunities for people to support the Lord's work in parts of the USA, Africa and Mexico. Our primary ministry recognizes and equips the local church workers to do the evangelism and discipleship that are needed in their location.
The ministry is supported by brothers and sisters in Christ from different areas and churches that share their time, talents and resources. Most importantly, we are thankful for the prayers of those throughout the world that support the ministry.
Many participate in small teams that minister in San Luis, Mexico with Harvest Vision Mexico. Teams are involved in evangelism, teaching, construction projects, supporting pastors and existing churches, outreach to prisons, city-wide crusades, food kitchens and meeting the needs of the poor. The close proximity to the US border allows many to participate that would be unable to if the location were further from the border, especially for those with special needs or that might require medical attention in the US, keeps the cost of the trip more affordable and reduces the travel time. Ministry housing provides a safe and comfortable environment and allows the teams to prepare their own meals, further reducing the cost for the trip.
In Africa, we work through Harvest Vision Africa that helps coordinate native missionaries from different denominations to outreach to communities in Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan.
Although many of us attend different churches locally, we build and maintain our relationships by hosting men's, women's and family worship services at different churches and participating with local churches and ministries outside of our own local church families. Presentations are available for churches, organizations or families that would like to be involved in the ministry.

Biblical unity in the Christian community fulfilling the Great Commission and transforming communities.
Our vision is to bring Christian brothers and sisters together to intercede in prayer and to share our God-given gifts, talents and resources, including financial, for the spreading of the gospel in the United States, Mexico and Central Africa and to recognize, encourage and support local native missionaries (pastors, evangelists, teachers and other leaders) that God has called to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) and therefore witness entire communities transformed by the power of God.
We are fulfilling the vision:
By providing prayer, fellowship and worship opportunities that transcend denominational, age, economic, cultural and language barriers.
By maintaining non-denominational websites which incorporate information that will help the Body to work in unity, be better stewards of our resources and promote community transformation.
By encouraging and facilitating relationships between Christian brothers and sisters from the United States, Mexico, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan.
In the USA - (1) By providing a common mission experience that builds on personal relationships with each other and our brothers and sisters in San Luis and other areas as the Lord directs; and (2) By providing an affordable mission trip with varied ministry opportunities to families and small church groups that can be scheduled according to that groups availability and that meets the needs of Harvest Vision Mexico in San Luis and other areas as the Lord directs.
By preaching the gospel with Christians that have a renewed passion to reach the lost.
By supporting local church families and the training of leaders to ensure obedience to God’s Word providing the assurance of biblical discipleship for new believers.
By communicating information on the evangelistic and teaching methods that the Holy Spirit is teaching us to reach different groups of people.
In Mexico through Harvest Vision Mexico and in Central Africa through Harvest Vision Africa – (1) By assisting in coordinating with different churches and ministries to involve local leaders to plan strategic, small outreaches to outlying communities in which they provide the majority of resources needed ensuring ownership and accountability; (2) By providing sound and video equipment to outreaches, providing for transportation cost and the technical support, when needed; and (3) By coordinating outreaches to minimize the distance and cost when moving equipment and support from one location to the next.
By resurrecting the hope of community transformation by presenting evidence of actual communities transformed through the power of God.
By presenting the principles of community transformation.
-United and humble Christians that come together to repent in fervent prayer to seek the righteousness of a loving God. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
- importance of targeted and informed intercessory prayer based on identifying -demonic strongholds.
-The responsibility of Christian leadership in over-seeing the dynamics of actual transformation.
-The Christian principles that apply to meeting the basic needs of a community; political, educational, economical, social and health.
By facilitating the sharing of testimonies that support the methods that meet the spiritual and basic needs of communities.
In Central Africa – By accessing and prioritizing the basic needs of those in communities and identifying resources (ministries, NGO’s, government programs, etc.) available to support community transformation.
Statement of Faith
The Gospel is good news, the very best news anyone can hear. The Gospel announces that God loved the world so profoundly that He gave His Son to die on the cross for lost sinners. Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sins. Christ's resurrection makes ours possible. Whoever believes in Christ will not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16; 5:24). Jesus Christ is the only Savior, the one and only mediator between God and humanity, the only hope of the world (Acts 4:12; 1 Timothy 2:5).
--Children can understand it. Yet, it is so profound that the wisest theologians will never exhaust its riches.
--We confess the historic Christian faith and proclaim the life-transforming Gospel of Jesus Christ.
--We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for us, and His return to earth in power and glory.
--We believe that local churches are visible manifestations of the one universal church and exist where the Word of God and the Gospel are faithfully preached and baptism and the Lord’s Supper are faithfully administered.
--We believe that every Christian and every local church is entrusted with the privilege and responsibility of proclaiming the Gospel and of establishing new churches everywhere.
We believe that:
1.The God of the Bible is the one and only God.
2.The Bible is God's written Word.
3.Sin has broken our fellowship with God.
4.God so loved the world that He gave His Son to die for lost and perishing sinners. (John 3:16)
5.God the Holy Spirit regenerates and empowers believers to live the Christian life.
6.By their union with Christ, the head of the universal church, all believers are united to one another.
7.The Church's primary task in every generation is to proclaim the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
