Harvest Ministries started in 1991 when Pastor Dr. Manolo Urrtuia came with his family to the Bay Area. The vision of the church is to work in Cell Groups and to reach people for Christ.

Our congregation started with 9 people in a home, two months after that we moved to a space that could hold 170 people, which at first was a goal for us. With the Lord’s help we needed to find a bigger place by 1992. That’s when we moved to the San Francisco Christian Center that was for 800 plus. At first we only had three rows filled but our faith and vision was bigger than ever.

Harvest Ministries has grown to radio programs, Cell Groups, various congregations
throughout the Bay Area and around the world. We continue to reach out to the community to help individuals find salvation thru our Lord Jesus Christ.
