About

A History of  Harvest Assembly

 

Harvest Assembly was founded in 1987 and is affiliated with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada and adheres to Pentecostal Church teachings. We are a New Testament Church, with a congregation presently made up of many different nationalities.

The first service was held on Easter weekend [1987] at the Holiday Inn Hotel located near Warden Avenue & Highway 401. We started with about 17 people.  We rented one conference room for our services. Two small meeting rooms served as Sunday School/Children’s Church classrooms.

Our first Pastor was Rev. Bob Skinner.  At that time he was the editor of the Pentecostal Testimony.  He was our senior pastor for around 1½  half years.  He held this as a temporary position in order to help establish Harvest Assembly. The Assistant Pastor was Fred Penney who later became the Senior Pastor.

 After meeting for approximately one year in the Holiday Inn, we moved to Don Mills High School. Meetings were held in the cafeteria & drama rooms.

In August 1996 we agreed on a lease at 58 Prince Andrew Place for 5000 square feet, about one quarter of the entire building, where we made many renovations in order for it to accommodate the needs of Harvest Assembly. We moved in November and stayed for the next 10 years.

Rev. Jeff Wilson became our Pastor in November of 2001 after Pastor Fred Penney was called to pastor a church in Port Perry.

We purchased the property at 61 Curlew Drive, Toronto in 2003 and Ieased it out for about 3 years. Then in October of 2006 we moved into what is now our current location.

In the spring of 2008 Pastor Jeff Wilson left Harvest to pastor a church in Aurora.

In July of 2008 Harvest Assembly welcomed Pastor Dale Sanger to lead Harvest Assembly. In May of 2011 Harvest Assembly welcomed Jagdish Luchun as our Assistant Pastor.

Pastor Dale Sanger was called to pastor a church in Belle River, Ontario and left in November, 2014. 

On May 3, 2015  Pastor Gary Nettleship was voted in to become the present  pastor of Harvest Assembly.
