Outreaches

Director of Outreaches: Pastor Kelley Tucker

  • In 1994, I went on a missions trip to the projects of Milwakee. While there the Lord revealed to me that hurting people lived in my city too. I knew I had to come back and find them.
  • That same summer Harvest Life’s bus ministry began. With one bus, one driver, and one worker, we would go to one neighborhood and pick up kids every Sunday morning. Our bus ministry has expanded greatly, and currently we run five buses (and need more!) with a large group of workers into over six neighborhoods three times per week!
  • Reaching out and helping kids, youth, and adults in our city is my heart. We seek to pour out as much love as we can into a hurting city. Our goal is to transform a city, turn neighborhoods around, and give hope to people in need.

 

Each Harvest Life outreach is unique:

  • Ministry Truck: During the warm months, we take our ministry truck and set up in local neighborhoods and parks. At these outreaches, we play all kinds of games and have many fun activities, from water games, our bounce house, or football, to sidewalk chalk, face painting, and various carnival games. We also serve hotdogs and teach a lesson that will give help and hope to people within the neighborhood. We will sometimes have a special guest speaker we feel can minister to a specific neighborhood.
  • Bus Ministry: Three times each week, our buses go into several local neighborhoods to pick up kids, youth, and adults, bringing them back to our campus for an amazing night or morning of fun.
  • Special Outreaches: At times, Harvest Life reaches out in special ways. We’ve done everything from repairing houses and helping with laundry to organizing, sponsoring, and carrying out a city-wide Shoe Revolution.
  • Joining with Other Ministries: At times, we connect with other ministries to give out school supplies, deliver Thanksgiving dinners, give Christmas presents, or go into apartment complexes to reach kids we would not otherwise be able to impact.

Whatever outreach you are involved in at Harvest Life, be assured, you will be building the Kingdom, reaching the lost and having the time of your life!
