The weekend of February 4+ 5 at both of our campuses, we made a couple announcements. Those were the following.



Cal VanEssen is stepping down as an Elder of Harvest. Cal has worked tirelessly for these last 3 years. He has served as the Elder chairman and has provided outstanding leadership to the Elders and to our entire church family. Before coming to Harvest, Cal served in leadership at his previous church for many years and he now just feels it's time to take a break. Cal is a great friend and mentor to me personally and I will miss him as an Elder but I am grateful that he will still be active at Harvest on a regular basis. Craig Reid has graciously agreed to step in and fill the Elder chairman role going forward.


Dale Hanssen announced this weekend that he will be transitioning out of the campus pastor position at our Broomfield campus. Dale is an Elder and was kind enough to take on the campus pastor role for us since Broomfield launched last Easter. Dale has led our Broomfield launch very well and he is now ready to only have one job - as he still has a full-time job outside of his work as a campus pastor. Dale has laid the groundwork for a smooth transition as we now begin a search for our next campus pastor in Broomfield. We are grateful that Dale will continue on as an Elder and will remain an active part of the Harvest family. Dale will remain in his campus pastor position until a new campus pastor is hired.

Please join me, Pastor Jeff, in thanking both Cal and Dale in their service for our God at Harvest Bible Chapel Denver.  And please join me in prayer as we search for a campus pastor and for additional Elders.
You are Loved,


Pastor Jeff Schwarzentraub - Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel Denver
