Denise James - Director of Children's Ministry



In your own words describe what you do here at Harvest?

You will find me planning, preparing, teaching, praying, recruiting, setting up classes, tearing down classes, greeting families, making a difference in the kid’s lives and LOVING Children’s Ministries!

Why did you want to be on staff at Harvest?

Amazing team to work with!! Godly leadership that supports, encourages and is totally behind the ministry!! Love the heart of the Church and the direction that it is heading!!

What experience, education, and/or work background do you bring with you to Harvest?

It all started with rocking babies in the nursery and that began my 19 years of volunteering in a variety of ministries in Children's. Previous to Harvest, I was also on staff, at another local church ,for 10 years in Children’s Ministries.

What are you most passionate about when it comes to ministry?

I am extremely passionate that kid’s discipleship journey begin at a very young age. That they know who God is, how much He loves them and that they have a blast learning about our amazing God. My goal is for kids to know how to use the Bible in their every day lives and that they would have a small group leader pouring into them.

What could we find you doing on your days off?

You might find me reading a good book, spending time with family or dragging my husband shopping!

What's one thing someone would be surprised to know about you?

One might be surprised to know that there was a time in my life when I was deathly afraid to speak in front of a group of people. The first time I spoke in front of the church my knees were literally knocking together.

If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you want to go and why?

I would love to go to travel to Israel and see the Bible come to life!
