Harvest Bible Chapel Fountain Hills is part of a movement that is reaching across the globe.
HARVEST BIBLE CHAPEL | 1988
Beginning in September 1988, Harvest Bible Chapel Chicago met in a conference room with 18 followers of Jesus Christ who wanted a different kind of church in the Chicago area—a church where Christ would be worshiped in Spirit and in Truth. God led them to call 27-year-old James MacDonald to be their pastor in Rolling Meadows, Illinois. By God’s hand, Harvest Bible Chapel has grown into a healthy, functioning fellowship of over 14,000 individuals on seven Chicagoland campuses.
HARVEST BIBLE FELLOWSHIP | 2001
In 2001, Harvest Bible Fellowship launched a global church planting initiative that has led to 150+ growing churches throughout the United States, Canada, and throughout the world.
HBC NORTH PHOENIX | 2007
Harvest Bible Chapel North Phoenix met for the first time on October 2, 2005 with a Core Group of 25 people. In April, 2007, they became an official video extension campus of Harvest Bible Chapel in Chicago, following some transitional work the Lord was doing in the church. In March, 2008, through prayer and discussion, the combined leadership of Harvest Bible Chapel in Chicago and Harvest Bible Chapel North Phoenix determined it was the right time for the North Phoenix Campus to begin working toward becoming an official local church plant under the leadership of Harvest Bible Fellowship. Since 2008, Harvest Bible Chapel North Phoenix has grown into a thriving fellowship serving the Scottsdale and North Phoenix communities as well as other surrounding communities.
HBC EAST VALLEY | 2012
In 2012, the leadership of the Harvest Bible Fellowship and Harvest Bible Chapel North Phoenix agreed that God was leading toward another Harvest Bible Chapel in the greater Phoenix metro area. Through that step of faith Harvest Bible Chapel East Valley was born that May.
HBC WEST VALLEY | 2014
One year later, the elders of Harvest North Phoenix agreed that God was opening a door to plant in the west valley of Phoenix. After much prayer and planning, HBC West Valley launched as a church May of 2014.
HBC FOUNTAIN HILLS | 2014
In the fall of 2013, after a season of intense pruning, the leaders of Four Peaks Community Church reached out to Harvest Bible Fellowship with the desire to become a strong, Bible-teaching, life-giving church. On January 27th, Four Peaks Community Church closed their doors and began the transition to become Harvest Bible Chapel Fountain Hills. After eight months of prayer, planning and training, HBCFH launched on September 14, 2014. As part of the world wide Harvest family, HBCFH is committed to proclaiming His Word with power and authority, lifting high the name of Jesus Christ, believing firmly in the power of prayer, and boldly sharing the Good News of Jesus. Additionally, HBCFH is an uncommon community of people who are committed to live out their faith with one another in a real way.
