Harvest Bible Chapel
In 1988 a group of eighteen people from across the northwest Chicago suburbs had a vision to start Harvest Bible Chapel
. The church met in Rolling Meadows with James MacDonald as the Senior Pastor. Today, over 12,000 people call this church their home as they worship Christ together on five campuses.
The Harvest Network
In 2000 Harvest planted their first church in Glen Ellyn, Illinois
, and announced the vision to start 10 churches in 10 years. Harvest Bible Fellowship
was formed to edify, protect, encourage, and support these new churches. By the end of 2011 God raised up more than 70 Harvest Bible Chapels meeting in North America and internationally.
Harvest Bible Chapel DeKalb
In August of 2007, the people of Wellspring Chapel, a four year old church and affiliate member of Harvest Bible Fellowship, embraced the decision and leadership of its Elders to transition to partner membership and become Harvest Bible Chapel of DeKalb.
Harvest Bible Chapel of DeKalb owns a facility which includes a newly renovated auditorium that will seat up to 350 people, classrooms, and a students/youth auditorium on about 6 acres in the medical/professional corridor halfway between DeKalb and Sycamore.
