Harvest was founded by Pastor Paul Cypert on Father's Day, 1988 in Plainview, Texas. Pastor Paul had a dream from God of a church full of people young at heart worshipping Jesus. Paul and D'Ann started the church as a Life Group with a few friends, and their families, that met in their home. The pioneering days of Harvest consisted of constant prayer, worship, fellowship and a lot of hard work.
The heart of Harvest has always been to reach people with the message of Jesus Christ. What started out as a Life Group in Pastor Paul's living room has grown into what we like to call a life-giving, bible preaching, Christ manifesting, Spirit-filled church. Throughout the years, we have trained up leaders and sent them out to plant other Harvest churches across West Texas. Currently, there are Harvest churches in Amarillo, Lubbock, Plainview, and Seymour Texas. Harvest ministers to over 900 people each week in Plainview, and over 2,000 in all the locations. Over the years we have also worked with international ministries to share the love and Word of God with people in Africa, Poland, Bulgaria and Mexico.
The churches we have in Plainview, Lubbock, Amarillo, and Seymour represent what we believe God is calling us to do in future. We intend to plant additional churches across this region as we continue to follow the leadership of the Holy Spirit to advance the Kingdom of God in West Texas and beyond.
At Harvest we recognize that God has a plan and purpose for each person's life. We believe He's created us to live together in a healthy, life-giving community of believers called the local church. Put simply, Harvest is a church that is about reaching people right where they're at. We're a church on a mission to the culture with the message of Jesus. You play an important part in being light to your sphere of influence. Together, we can advance the vision God has given us and continue making a difference right here in our community.
