Being a Christian, having a Christian family, or attending a Christian church does not mean life will be a bed of roses. Because we live in a sinful world even the best Christian families have trouble. Sickness or death may prevent a parent or grandparent from being able to provide for their children. Divorce may rip a family apart, leaving every family member angry, confused, and hurt. The thrill and temptation of the world may be too much for a teenager to handle in his current environment. These situations do not make people “bad”—it just means they are human. Humans need help from time to time —we need each other—that is what the church is about. Galatians 6:2 instructs us: “Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.” Romans 15:1 also charges: “We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.”

This is why Harvest exists. We are proud to be a Free Will Baptist ministry and are committed to serving our Free Will Baptist community of churches and families. When a family in our community of faith needs help with their child—we are here! Harvest serves children ages 5 to 18 who have been abused, neglected, abandoned or are troubled. Children can come to Harvest from any state. We can provide a temporary home while the issues at hand are resolved, or we can be a permanent home if the situation warrants.

When a child is placed at Harvest they become part of our family. We are committed to raising our children just like you do yours. We strive to give them the best education, instill in them a love for the Lord Jesus and His church, spend fun times in recreation, and teach them to become independent and hard-working members of society. When we become a child’s permanent home we follow them after they leave—to college, career, marriage & family. They know they will always have their Harvest family to celebrate with them and to encourage them when things do not work out just right.

Do you know someone who needs us now? Is there someone in your church or family that is having trouble raising their child? Maybe even you have spent sleepless nights in worry about a child who seems to be heading in the wrong direction—we want to help! To discuss your situation or to get more information please contact me and together we will determine if Harvest is the right place for the child of your concern. Remember, Harvest exists because, “Every child needs a home!”
