History

In its nineteen-year history, the Lord has allowed Harvest Evangelism to develop a method, based on the biblical principles of unity, reconciliation, and prayer, for reaching entire cities for Christ. The first city was Resistencia, Argentina, where the implementation of these principles produced much growth in church attendance during the three-year period of time from 1988 to 1991. Since that time, Church growth in Resistencia has increased greatly, and a significant change in the spiritual climate of the city has occurred. Other cities, such as San Nicolas and Mar del Plata in Argentina are also beginning to see similar breakthroughs.

In August of 1994, Ed Silvoso's book, That None Should Perish, which spells out in detail the principles behind the prototype, was published by Regal Books. Today, by God's grace, thousands of pastors and lay people in hundreds of congregations are influencing cities around the world through prayer evangelism. Harvest Evangelism's U.S. staff are positioned to help guide city-wide efforts such as "Pray Twin Cities" (Minneapolis/St. Paul), "Pray Yuba-Sutter" (Counties, in No. California), and "Pray South Bay" (San Jose, California area) and service emerging prayer evangelism projects in cities around the world from Hong Kong to South America to the United Kingdom.

Each and all of the Harvest Evangelism ministries are dedicated to the task of reaching the population centers of the world for the cause of Christ. As in the beginning, the team remains committed to serve the entire Body of Christ by praying to the Lord of the harvest for more laborers (Matt. 9:38) and equipping those laborers already on the field (Eph. 4:12) until the Great Commission is fulfilled.
