Our Story

Equipped with a vision from God and a commandment to go into all the world, Pastor Bracken and Donna Christian founded Harvest Church in June of 1992.  The initial name was Church On The Go, and recently changed to Harvest Church.  Harvest Church is established on the authority and integrity of God’s Word and the potential for every Christian to live a victorious and abundant life through faith.

The church initially began with a few people meeting in Pastor Bracken and Donna’s living room until a small church facility on the current campus became available for rent two months later.  The church expanded into adjacent space as it grew and eventually added the new auditorium.  We currently occupy 28,500 square feet of the property.  In 2003, the church purchased the current warehouse property.  We also purchased 65 acres of undeveloped land on Upland Ave, north of Marsha Sharp Freeway, where we have architectural plans for our new building.

Through the years, our congregation has grown and our influence in West Texas has broadened.  Pastor Bracken and Donna are responsible for pioneering three other Family Harvest Churches in West Texas; Post, Seminole and Plainview.  All three churches are thriving and growing with full time pastors who are commissioned out of Harvest Church, Lubbock.

Our Pastors

Dr. Bracken Christian is the senior pastor of Harvest Church—Lubbock.  He pioneered the church in 1992.  With an apostolic call on his life, he started and was the initial pastor of the three other area Family Harvest Churches in Post, Seminole and Plainview.  Internationally, Dr. Christian has helped influence church planting in El Salvador and Ghana, Africa.  As well as founding Harvest Ministry Seminary, and serving as professor of pastoral ministry in the Bible School, Dr. Christian travels internationally to minister on inspiring faith, vision, and excellence.

Dr. Christian attended Texas Tech University, is a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, and also holds a Doctorate in Theology. Prior to establishing Harvest Church, he served in several churches as Youth Minister, Associate Minister and led Praise and Worship.  In 2018, he celebrated 35 years in ministry.

Donna is first and always devoted to helping her husband and pastor fulfill God’s call on his life.  She has been equally committed to raising their four children, who are all serving God and fulfilling His plan for their lives.  She uses her administrative gift in every area of church life.  In the church’s beginning years before any staff was in place, Donna established the children’s ministry, prayer group ministry, connect group ministry and handled all the business and accounting issues.  Donna continues to help oversee the business of the church and coordinates the women’s ministry of Harvest Church.

Our Beliefs

  • The bible is the inspired Word of God.
  • Our God is One, But manifested in three Persons-the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world.
  • Salvation is the gift of God to man through faith in Jesus Christ.
  • The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced, produces eternal life.
  • Baptism in water is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only.
  • The Baptism in the Holy Ghost is a gift and is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues.
  • We believe in sanctification, which is living a life of holiness.
  • Healing is the privilege of every member of the Church today provided through Jesus’ death on the cross.
  • Jesus will return and “…The dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air…”  (1 Thess. 4:16-17)
  • The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is eternally lost and, therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting.
