Harvest Ridge Covenant Church (http://www.harvestridge.org) is growing, small to mid-sized church in Shawnee, KS, a suburb just outside Kansas City. Shawnee is that it is one of the fastest growing cities in the Kansas City metropolitan area and in the State of Kansas. This city has grown at a rate of 25% or more every decade.
Harvest Ridge Covenant Church held its first worship service in 1997 with a core group of about 50 people from our sister church in the area. Since that time, we have met in two schools and a movie theater before moving into our present facility in 2001.
Harvest Ridge belongs to an even bigger family of about 800+ Christ-centered and mission-minded churches in the US and Canada - a denomination known as the Evangelical Covenant Church. We are heirs to a 100+ year history of Covenant Church ministry with nine other ECC churches currently in the Kansas City metro area.
Harvest Ridge is guided by the following vision statement:
“At Harvest Ridge, we believe that Christ wants lost people found, hurting people helped and believers growing in their faith.”
Living into this vision, Harvest Ridge has become an intergenerational, relational and missional (focus on outreach) faith community. We value our broad age-band of attendees, our deep, warm relationships with each other and our rich partnerships with other ministries.
