Dear Harvest Life Church Family:

Happy 28th Anniversary! We are so very grateful to have such a wonderful congregation as the Harvest Life Church! We feel that God blessed us when He sent us to pastor a congregation in Woodbridge, Virginia some 28 years ago. From our hearts – thank you for your love, loyalty, sacrifice and support all of these years!

This week we kick off the grand celebration of our 28th Pastors and Church Anniversary that takes place Sunday, October 1 – Sunday, October 8, 2023! God has blessed us in countless ways since the church doors opened 28 years ago, and this will be a celebration like no other as we thank Him for all He has done, is doing and will do!

We want every member of our Harvest Life family to show up fired up all week for this grand Anniversary celebration. Get ready to experience anointed preaching, dynamic praise and worship, spiritually uplifting “Choir Fire” Night, a fun-filled Harvest Life Family Fest, Founders’ Day Appreciation Service, Fired Up Prayer on Facebook Live, reflections, moments from Harvest Life’s history and more! See the details below for the full itinerary of services and events. Click the 28th Pastors and Church Anniversary link for more details!
