Pastor Parsley is involved in a lot of stuff. How involved in this church is he, really?
Pastor Parsley has often said that if he never had the opportunity to be host a television show, preach in churches and other venues across America, do humanitarian work around the world or influence moral values in the public square, he’d still be a pastor. WHC
is not only the flagship outreach of the ministry he’s built for more than 40 years, but also the place where his skills and his passions are most fully realized. He is involved in every aspect of the church’s operations, and there is no reason to expect that will change anytime soon.
What do you have for kids?
Our intent is to have the most family-friendly church in Columbus, both so young children can experience God in a way that makes sense for them and so their parents can worship Him without distraction or concern for their kids’ safety. Kid Harvest
offers a nursery (birth-age 3), preschool (age 3-kindergarten) and junior church (grades 1-5), and 678 (grades 6-8) for every service. Our trained teachers are dedicated both to your children’s safety and to ministering the Gospel to them.
Our opportunities for children and youth also include Royal Rangers and MPact
Girls, Christian organizations similar to Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts respectively, which meet at 7 p.m. Wednesdays.
What do you have for teens?
Our Next Harvest Youth program
meets on Wednesday nights, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in relevant ways with area teens. Monthly events at other times of the week, called Next Harvest Branches, are held as well.
How do I become a member?
You're in. It's that easy. We want you to be a part of our family.
Do you have Bible studies or other small groups?
are in-home gatherings of eight to 20 people who meet on a regular basis for fellowship, Bible study and prayer, separately from the weekly worship service. New Life Groups exist throughout greater Columbus; each is led by one or more mature Christian leaders who will accept you as you are, strengthen your faith and encourage you during life’s difficult times. A Life Group is a connection to a growing church and an awesome God. Click here to find or form a home group in your neighborhood.
