Harvest Bible Chapel Pittsburgh North
launched on October 2, 2011.

Being natives to the area, it was an exciting opportunity for the Millers to plant a church in the Pittsburgh region. A core group of about 25 people met and prayed for months before the launch of the church. But this church finds her roots in a movement of God that started almost 500 miles away...

 

Beginning in September 1988, the original Harvest Bible Chapel met in a conference room with 18 followers of Jesus Christ who wanted a different kind of church in the Chicago area...

...a church where Christ would be worshiped in Spirit and in Truth. God led them to call 27-year-old James MacDonald to be their pastor in Rolling Meadows, Illinois.

By God’s hand, Harvest Bible Chapel has grown into a healthy, functioning fellowship of over 12,000 individuals on six Chicago land campuses. Recently, Harvest Bible Fellowship launched a church planting initiative that has led to growing churches throughout the United States, Canada, Romania... and continues to flourish increasingly all over the world with more church-planting churches popping up constantly.
