Young Adults Pastor



Why We Love This Opportunity

Slingshot is excited to partner once again with Harvest Christian. They are seeking an individual with a gift and skill set which equips and empowers others to relationally connect with and mentor young adults in Irvine and the greater Orange County region. This person should be a strong communicator and a great person to do life with!

Church or Org Description

If there are two words about Harvest to encapsulate the start, it would be “humble beginnings”. Few may know that before it was one of the largest churches in America, it started as a home Bible study of 30 people. It was in 1973 in Riverside, California, that a 19-year-old Greg Laurie felt the call of God to lead this group. Through God’s guiding hand, Harvest Christian Fellowship was transformed from a small group into a church of 15,000 people at multiple campus locations in Southern California and Hawaii.

Longing to reach more people with Jesus Christ, this team began holding Harvest Crusades in 1990. Of these events, the largest live one-day evangelistic event in US history occurred at Harvest America 2016—350,000 people in attendance. For 30 years, these large-scale evangelistic events have reached millions of people, and hundreds of thousands of them have professed faith in Jesus Christ.

Greg Laurie and the Harvest team continue to bring the gospel home each week at Harvest Christian Fellowship and across the nation to help people know God and make Him known.
