In 1988, a group of eighteen people from across the northwest suburbs of Chicago gathered to form a new church. They had a vision for proclaiming the authority of the Word of God without apology, lifting high the name of Jesus through worship, believing firmly in the power of prayer, and sharing the good news of Jesus with boldness. Harvest Bible Chapel was born on September 18, 1988, with James MacDonald serving as the Senior Pastor. Since that time, the Lord has worked amazing things at Harvest Bible Chapel’s for His glory. The church is presently ministering on seven Chicago-land campuses with about 12,000 weekly attendees as well as over ninety church plants around the world.


Harvest Bible Chapel is a church that seeks the vertical, full expression of God’s glory. Harvest is one church on multiple campuses. The mission of Harvest Bible Chapel is to glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission. The church's obedience to this mission is the foundation of every Harvest ministry. From worship services, to Children's Ministry, to Student and Adult Ministries, their chief aim is to make authentic disciples of Christ who follow His ways in their worship, their walk, and their work.
