Harvest Students exists to connect students to God, His Word, His People,
and His purpose for their lives.

We strive to implement this mission into our students lives through

3 critical elements of Vertical programming.

Vertical Weekly program

Consists of weekly worship, relevant teaching, and small groups led by incredible church volunteers. This weekly program is held on each of our Aurora, Crystal Lake, Elgin, and Rolling Meadows Campuses.

Vertical small groups

This is an element of the weekly program, but it is so pivotal in our strategy in connecting students to our mission. Half of our program each night is students gathering in groups based on age and gender, where they seek to implement the mission and grow closer to their mentors and friends. It’s a place where they belong regardless of how they behave or what they believe. All are welcome.

Vertical Events

Our two flagship events, Wakeup conference and Camp Harvest happen once a year. Wakeup Conference happens in the winter, with special guest speakers and artists. Camp Harvest happens over the summer and serves as the catapult into our fall ministry year. Throughout the year you might find other events like Ultimate pumpkin punch, Friendsgiving, Spring break mission trips and many more.
