Since God took hold of his life in high school, Kurtis has been on a wild journey involving worship, music, and spiritual growth. Praise and worship was not something he had even heard of until later in life, but over the years it grew to become his passion. He and his wife Rebecca joined Church for the Harvest in early 2015, and he is grateful that God has given him the opportunity here to help others enter into worship and build faith alongside a wonderful worship team and community of believers.
In1990, Kim had an encounter with God that changed her life. The calling of youth ministry, that God knit into her, was ignited. For 16 years, she volunteered wherever she was needed in youth ministry. In 2007, she began leading as a youth director and has continued in that calling. In 2010, she accepted the Youth Director position at Harvest. Her husband, Joel, of 27 years, came beside her in helping lead and love the youth. Kim's heart and passion is to guide youth to know Jesus Christ is the only way, the only truth, and the only life. Her vision and goal is to prepare and equip youth to become followers of Christ and spiritual Christian leaders in this world.
