  • Jeff Kaiser

    Lead Pastor

    Jeff had an encounter with Jesus while working as a DJ at rock station in 1993 that changed his life forever. Jeff began preaching in 1996, then going to the nations in 1999 with an emphasis on going to unreached tribes in West Africa and India where he had seen many come to Christ, many healings and miracles. He has been to 30 countries so far bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ and seeing many lives changed by His love and power! His heart is for people to encounter Jesus, His love and power, & for them to walk out their purpose and destiny. Jeff came on as Lead Pastor at Harvest Church in April 2016. 

    He is married to Sherry (over 30yrs!). They have 3 children, 8 grandchildren, and one great grandson! He is an unashamed coffee snob, loves the outdoors (especially the ocean!), lives by the concept of WHY NOT!

    Also, Jeff and his Golden Retriever - Henry, are a Certified Pet Therapy Team that bring a lot of comfort, joy, and smiles to people who are struggling, feeling anxious, or have been through a traumatic event.
