Pastors & Staff

Meet the team.

Called by God and fueled by a passion to serve, our staff endeavors to
provide our members and attendees the spiritual nourishment necessary
for growth into mature, established followers of God.

Duane & Joyce Harney

Pastor Duane & Joyce answered the call of God to pastor a small group of 20-25 people and founded Community Harvest Church shortly after in 1992. Pastor Duane serves as the Senior Pastor and Joyce serves as our Worship Arts Minister. They have an evident call of God to oversee the ministry of Community Harvest Church, a sincere burden to win the lost and a passion for the child of God to grow in grace and in the knowledge of God's Word.
