THE HARVEST INITIATIVE
The Harvest Initiative is a gathering of people and churches into the ministry of giving for The Wesley Foundation at Louisiana Tech. Across Louisiana Tech’s campus, the fields are ripe for the harvest; and we at The Wesley have laborers throughout the vineyard sowing seeds, watering and tending to sprouts, and gathering the crop to the glory of the Kingdom of God. Our hopes are to share with you the stories of this harvest and to have you come alongside us in this harvest work through the ministry of giving. When Paul writes to the church in Corinth encouraging them to give generously to the ministry of the Gospel of Christ as they are blessed with an abundance, he names two outcomes of this ministry of giving: the needs of fellow believers will be met, and they will joyfully express their thanks to God (2 Corinthians 9). To do the good work God has for us in our other areas of ministry at The Wesley, we need faithful partners, united through this ministry of giving, to undergird and financially provide for us.
Through The Harvest Initiative, we are asking you commit to being in covenant with The Wesley in three ways. First, we ask you to pray for the rich harvest among the students at Louisiana Tech, for our mission efforts among them to be fruitful and transformative, and for the provision of resources to maintain this mission work among them. Second, we ask you to be a part of this ministry by worshipping with us once a year, serving at Laid Back Lunch once a year, or getting to know one of our ministry interns to hear the story of God at work in their lives and through their witness. We also ask you to be an ambassador for The Wesley, sowing seeds by sharing the story of God and encouraging others to join us in our mission. We ask you to do this by inviting a friend to be a part of The Harvest Initiative each quarter (four times a year). Finally, we ask each of you to financially support the general Wesley fund in one of these ways
