THE WORLD HARVEST CHURCH STORY

World Harvest Church began as a backyard Bible study in 1977. Seventeen
people attended. Nobody there thought it was going to be a church.
But after a few meetings, the idea of something more permanent took hold.
The group rented facilities in the area for weekly meetings, and eventually
constructed a building on Wright Road just outside Pickerington. The
church kept growing, and eventually required a larger building on the same
property. Finally, the church – then known as Word of Life – purchased
property on Gender Road in southeast Franklin County, and built what is
now WHC on what had been a corn field. When the new building was
dedicated, the congregation was named World Harvest Church in honor of
Dr. Lester Sumrall, who had befriended Pastor Rod Parsley some years
earlier and had become the young pastor’s mentor.
The Columbus campus of World Harvest Church also houses Harvest
Preparatory School, a K-12 educational institution, the operational offices of
Breakthrough, Pastor Rod Parsley’s worldwide television program & six
other national ministries. The Columbus campus is also the home of Valor
Christian College’s classrooms and dormitories.
Today, more than 12,000 people in central Ohio will tell you World Harvest
is their church home. At every WHC service you’ll find a family-friendly
congregation of Spirit-filled believers in Jesus Christ, representing every
age, ethnic group and walk of life.

WORLD HARVEST CHURCH MISSION
& VALUES

One church . . . one heart . . . one purpose.
These six words describe World Harvest better than any flowery, “written”
statement a focus group could create. It tells you who we are, why we gather
together and what we want more than anything.
You may find that your own family is seldom under the same roof at the same
time, but that doesn’t change the fact that your bonds aren’t easily broken.
That’s the way it is with the body of believers at World Harvest. We meet in
different places at different times and days of the week, in large groups and
small ones, and we express our faith in settings throughout central Ohio,
north-central Indiana, and around the world. But we’re still one church.
Our one heart is to share a deep and abiding love for God; His son, Jesus; His
Word, the Bible; and His people, both inside the church and out, because the
Bible tells us that others will come to know Him because of our love for each
other.
Our one purpose is to spread His Gospel to as many people as we can, in every
way we can, as long as we can. We would love to widen our circle to receive
you and your family.
