Global missions is close to our heart at Harvest Niagara! We believe that our calling extends beyond the Niagara region, Canada and even North America. God has ordained His church to be on mission for Him to reach the whole world with the Gospel of Jesus!
Over our history, it has been a massive blessing to partner with other like-minded churches to help plant Bible-believing, gospel-centered, Jesus-exalting churches. As God has opened doors around the globe, our people have been committed to doing our part through our missions mandate to PRAY, GIVE, and GO.
As a church family, we are passionate to do whatever it takes to help as many people as possible hear of the saving power of Jesus Christ that they may experience God and be changed forever!

Armando and Jennifer
Born and raised in North America, Armando and Jennifer moved to the Middle East in 2006 to establish a holistic ministry of compassion, evangelism, and discipleship among oppressed migrants. They have five boys, Joshua, Jadon, Jeremy, Joel, and Josiah, and currently lead a team of 33 adults.
The work is situated in one of the major bridge cities from the East to the West. Many of the world’s most vulnerable people, the majority Muslim, travel there as refugees. There, in their moment of greatest vulnerability and openness, they often find their first, best, or only opportunity to hear of Christ. Hundreds have come to faith through the ministry in the past several years from places like Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Western China, & Iran.

Josh and Emily Hunter
Great Lakes is a private Christian High School in Beamsville, ON. About 50% of students are international, from various parts of Asia, Africa, and Central America. Many students come from countries where they have never heard the gospel. Josh and Emily’s mission is geared towards sharing the gospel with those who have never heard before, as well as discipling and equipping believers on campus. Their vision is to see students leading other students to Christ. As a result, Christian students are being raised up to be global missionaries on campus, learning and applying principles of sharing the gospel, their testimonies, and journeying alongside new believers and those seeking to know God for the first time.
Paul and Shelley
St. Catharines, ON
Paul and Shelley (with sons, Gabe and Cam) lived in two different countries in South Asia as church planters among Muslims and leadership developers for fifteen years. They enjoy drinking tea and sharing the gospel with those who have little opportunity to learn about Jesus. In 2015, God closed the door to living in Asia for a season by allowing a visa to be rejected.
Paul and Shelley currently serve as Regional Directors for their organization’s people reaching Muslims in Central Asia. In addition, Shelley uses her giftings in administration in their company’s Canadian office (based in St Catharines). Paul helps mobilize young people to go to Central Asia and beyond.
Their family verse is Hebrews 13:20-21, which contains God’s faithful promise that he will equip us with everything good needed to do His will.
