About Harvest Bible Chapel Rockford

Harvest Rockford celebrated its 15-year anniversary in 2018. Our church is conservative in theology and aggressive in reaching people for Christ. Sunday morning services include 40-45 minutes of preaching, worship led by a band, and occasional videos that enhance the aims of the Sunday morning service. Our passion is to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to spread that passion to our city and to the nations. Church planting is in our DNA. We have sent a church planter from our church body to the Czech Republic in 2012, and a second one to India in 2013. A third church plant in Milwaukee, Wisconsin occurred in September of 2018.

Our current attendance is approximately 850-900. In August of 2015, we finished an expansion to our facility which doubled the physical space to 32,000 feet. We added a children/student space, a gym, and office space. A good portion of the church is comprised of young families contributing about 200 children ages birth-5thgrade. Other growing ministries are the Student Ministry of 90+ students, and the 20-Somethings, consisting of 40+ young adults.
