Our History

HARVEST CHAPEL INTERNATIONAL, ATLANTA GEORGIA

Harvest Chapel International Atlanta (HCI Atlanta) is the Georgia based arm of Harvest International Ministries (HIM) which is an International Christian Organization committed to Building Christians of Charisma and Character. Harvest Chapel Atlanta was founded in 2006. Harvest Chapel International branch, Georgia is the second branch of Harvest Chapel that was open in North America.

OUR ROOTS

The pastor in charge Pastor Osafo Asare-Bediako who was one of the founding members of the first branch of the ministry in North America—the New Jersey branch. When he and his family relocated to Georgia in 2005 he was led to start another branch of Harvest Chapel International. After a four-month settling down period, we kicked off with our first service on January 29th 2006 at the Holiday Inn Atlanta-Northlake. Our membership then consisted of 7 consistent members, 5 of whom were also members of the New Jersey branch, who had also relocated to Georgia around the same time. We however had an average attendance at church each Sunday of around 10, as we usually had visitors almost every Sunday. After a few months of meeting at the hotel and carting instruments back and forth each Sunday, we rented a location on the Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, allowing us to have a rental place of our own.

INAUGURATION

Harvest Chapel Georgia was inaugurated on August 2006 by the General Overseer of the ministry—Rev. Fitzgerald Odonkor. We were privileged to have many members of Harvest Chapel who were living in the state of Georgia, come in to support and participate in this grand occasion. After meeting at this location for about one year, we relocated to our current venue in Douglasville GA, as the bulk of the members lived in the Cobb-Douglas area.

ANNUAL CAMP MEETING

In 2007 we were led to organize a three-day camp meeting as a branch. A courtesy invitation was sent to our sister branch in New Jersey, as well as other individual members of Harvest Chapel who were in other states. Brethren were welcome to the idea & on the Labour day weekend of 2007. The camp meeting was ironically hosted at Hard Labor State Park in Rutledge Georgia. Brethren in the New Jersey branch honoured our invitation and came in two fifteen-seater vans. individual Harvest chapel members in other states also attended. We had members from North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, Washington. Rev. & Mrs. Emmanuel Titi-Lartey attended from our international headquarters in Accra. Rev. Tetteh- Gyamgbah also came. Mr. William Sey from our Takoradi branch, who happened to be in Georgia at that time also participated in the meeting. This camp meeting was very successful and all who attended were greatly blessed. The idea of another camp meeting the next year was readily welcome by all in attendance. After settling in at our new venue in 2008, we were led to organize another camp meeting on the Labor Day weekend of 2009. Once again, our family from the New Jersey branch and the New York branch were in attendance coming again with two loaded fifteen-seater vans. Once again, there were members from Virginia, North Carolina, Arkansas, Washington, Illinois. After this second joint camp meeting, the idea of annual joint camp meetings had been accepted by all, and this event has become an annual event on the calendar of Harvest Chapel in North America. We have since hosted another camp meeting in 2014.

OUR MANDATE

In line with the vision of Harvest International Ministries worldwide, we at Harvest Chapel Georgia are committed to building Christians of charisma and character, with a great focus on developing leaders who will rise up to take their rightful position to make His kingdom come and his will be done here on earth as it is in heaven.
