Harvest Bible Chapel is one church on multiple campuses with one purpose: bring glory to God. Our story is still being written, as God continues to change lives by His Spirit through the ministries and people of our church.
News and events of all campuses are displayed on our homepage and on ministry pages. To filter these on all pages to a specific campus, click the blue "Set Campus Preference" bar at the top of any page and select that location.
We're seeking to lead people further into a life-altering relationship with the living God—and our worship services reflect that. The authority of God's Word is preached without apology and His Son is exalted with gratitude and adoration.
Senior Pastor James MacDonald regularly preaches from the Rolling Meadows Campus and the Elgin Campus. Weekend services on campuses where preaching is not live include Christ-exalting worship and the message delivered through simulcast.
When Pastor James is out of the pulpit, preaching is supplied by our Campus Pastors and, occasionally, guest preachers. Sermons are captured on audio and video, and available in the lobby following each service.
Children's Ministry for boys and girls from birth through fifth grade is provided on all campuses.
In 1988, a group of eighteen people from across the northwest suburbs gathered to form a new church. They had a vision for proclaiming the authority of the Word of God without apology, lifting high the name of Jesus through worship, believing firmly in the power of prayer, and sharing the good news of Jesus with boldness. Harvest Bible Chapel was born on September 18, 1988 with James MacDonald serving as the Senior Pastor.
Since that time the Lord has worked amazing things in our midst for His glory. We are presently ministering on seven Chicago-land campuses and have over 70 church plants around the world.
The mission of our ministry is to glorify God by making disciples—to fulfill the Great Commission in the spirit of the great commandment (Matthew 28:19-20; Matthew 22:37).
Our obedience to this mission is the foundation of every Harvest ministry. From worship services to Children's Ministry to Student and Adult Ministries, our chief aim is to make authentic disciples of Christ who follow His ways in their Worship, their Walk, and their Work.
