Harvest Bible Training Center

About Us

Harvest Bible Training Center was born out of a calling to teach and train God’s people to know the truth and to do the work of the ministry.  As an outreach of Harvest Church in Derry, PA, we benefit from the practicality of daily hands-on ministry and active pastoral leadership.  Utilizing gifts, talents, and abilities which God has provided for this purpose, we seek to help men and women find their faith, mature in it, and rise up to God’s calling on their lives.

We seek to embrace the simplicity that is Christ (2 Corinthians 11:3), while understanding and seeking the wisdom which is reserved for those who are mature in Christ (1 Corinthians 2:6-7).


At Harvest Bible Training Center (HBTC) we are honored to be used to help the Body of Christ grow and serve God in greater ways.  Our application process is designed simply to help us organize courses and better serve our students.  To apply, simply download, complete, and return the Course Registration Form, this form will also allow you to register for your first course.
