Harvest International Ministries (HIM) is an international Christian organization, pursuing the agenda of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and making disciples of all nations. HIM operates mainly through its church arm – Harvest Chapel International (HCI) – which has now grown into a network of mission-minded Harvest Chapel International churches, gradually spreading throughout the world.
The Ministry’s origin dates back to 1976) in Accra, Ghana, with the formation of Calvary Road Incorporated – an evangelistic group which functioned predominantly through its music wing named The Calvary Road Singers – and also through drama. After many years of effective frontline Christian service, the ministry, in obedience to the direction of the Holy Spirit, in 1992 transitioned into the church phase of ministry – while retaining its foundational outreach orientation.
Harvest International Ministry stands on the pillars of seven core values and is committed to seeing these embedded in its members at the individual, family and organizational levels. These values are Honesty, Respect, Faith, Excellence, Holy Ambition, Hard work and Achievement.
Moving forward with its divine mandate, the grace of God has enabled the ministry to remain at the forefront of christian music ministry in Ghana. High on the list of its annual gospel musical programmes is the “Harvest Praise” gospel outreach program which has been consistently held on Good Friday every year since its inception in 1999. The programme has enjoyed continuous massive patronage and has grown tremendously to the point where there is the need to hold two sessions (afternoon and evening) on the same day hosting top-notch local and international gospel music ministers. It has truly served as a platform for the salvation of many.
The scope of HIM is not limited exclusively to HCI/church-centered activities alone but extends into the wider body of Christ as well as impacting communities, and addressing the concerns of society. These include but not limited to other programmes and activities like Harvest Medical Missions, Rural and City Crusades, and Educational Outreaches. In this regard HIM has had, and continues to have viable partnerships with other organizations and institutions to further its cause for Christ.
In line with the Lord’s mandate in John 4:35 to, “…lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest” Harvest International Ministries (HIM) will continue to make greater impact for His Kingdom.
