My Harvest / Release to Increase JOE HEPLER

As a church, we believe in always giving priority to practicing the “first fruit lifestyle” we see modeled in the Word of God. We do this by committing the first forty days of the each year to seeking God through prayer and fasting. During these forty days we’ve been believing God for a harvest in this coming year like we’ve never seen before. We believe that this will be a year of personal increase for you and your family – which is why our theme for the entire year is MY HARVEST. Throughout this year you will continue to discover God’s design for your life by looking at what the Bible has to say about your finances, generosity, and ultimately your eternity.
