Harvest prepared me for my future in ministry
Shontel Van Haaster
What did you study at Harvest Bible College?
I started at Harvest in the beginning of 2014, doing Diploma of Ministry over the last two years. I’ve now completed my studies and it’s bitter sweet. I was an on campus student for most of my studies, doing only two online subjects.
Where have your studies at Harvest taken you?
Studying at Harvest has truly opened doors for me for different roles in my own church as well as connecting me with other great ministry leaders outside of that.
My studies at Harvest will continue to have a positive effect over everything I do.
How was Harvest part of the journey?
I am currently a Youth Leader, alongside my husband, to our two church campuses. I am one of the music directors for our music team as well as having the occasional opportunity to preach. I am also one of the coordinators for a community women’s event.
Studying has taught me how to build, how to lead, the importance of healthy growth in ministry, championing others and having good balance in our own lives. It has prepared me for my future in ministry and I will be applying all of it.
Everything I have learnt thus far has become the foundation of how I do in-church and outside-church ministry, and how I will do it and teach others in the future.
