Frequently Asked Questions

Joining a new network can lead to a lot of questions. Here are a few common questions to help you get started on this path.

What is the history of Harvest Network?

Harvest Network was born in the mid-1980's when a group of Spirit-filled Christian leaders from various denominational backgrounds saw the need for a new kind of ministerial association. The desire and intent was to embrace a high view of Scripture, the importance of the gifts of the Spirit being active in the Church today, and a vision of being part of a worldwide harvest of souls.
