    Our History

    Home - About Harvest - Our History In Illinois…
    In September 1988, eighteen men and women came together to form a different kind of church. By God's hand, Harvest Bible Chapel in Illinois has now grown into a healthy, functioning Christian fellowship of over 13,000 individuals across 7 campuses. Recently, the church set out a plan to establish new churches, which would share the same vision, values and beliefs. God has blessed this vision with daughter churches all over the world making up what is known as Harvest Bible Fellowship.

    In Oakville…

    In early 2003, God placed a calling and a dream within a small group of people to see a Harvest Bible Chapel come to the Greater Toronto Area. Through supernatural circumstances, a core group of people was formed and the momentum was building. It wasn’t long before ideas were being articulated, prayer meetings were being scheduled and plans were underway for the launch of Harvest Bible Chapel Oakville. 9 years later, God has multiplied that faithful group of 18 people into over 3,000 meeting each week. Early on in the life Harvest Oakville, the Elders had an increasing vision and burden to plant churches. As God continued to bless the ministry, 2 new Harvest Bible Chapel’s were planted: Harvest Brampton and Harvest Niagara. By God’s grace, Harvest Oakville, Harvest Brampton and Harvest Niagara all continue to be strong, healthy and growing churches.

    In Toronto West…
    In 2012 God began to stir the hearts of our Elders with a greater burden for a vibrant, Gospel-centered church in the city of Toronto. As we began to pray and seek God’s direction, it became apparent that this vision was growing in the hearts of others from the Toronto area as well…it was God’s time to move this vision forward as only He could.  In June of 2012, twenty-two people gathered for our first prayer meeting in a Toronto apartment on Bloor Street. We cried out to the Lord, asking God to do what only He could do in Toronto. In July, we moved the prayer meeting into a larger home in the area. By August, we had outgrown the house and began to meet in the Holiday Inn on Dixon Road. Times of worship and prayer were vibrant, full of faith and expectancy. The prayer meetings continued to grow, and as more and more people came together to worship and pursue God, the vision of planting a Harvest Bible Chapel in Toronto became a reality. As the story of Harvest Toronto West continues to unfold, we are confident that God himself is the author of it. We are humbled and amazed at what He is birthing and we look to the future with great anticipation for what God will do in our city.
