To provide church members with support as they pursue their walk with God, the church has established a unique initiative called the Passport Program. Children over 12 years of age and adults are invited to use the church’s passport to track their progress toward personal goals they have set for ministry and service. Participants receive passport stamps for completing certain church-sponsored activities, such as training, service projects and classes.
After accumulating certain combinations of stamps, church members are rewarded with “visas” that recognize their increased level of involvement with the church. The Passport Program and associated courses are open to everyone in the community, including those who are not members of the Harvest Church.

Harvest Church was established in January 1996 by Pastors Mark and DD Bryan. Pastor Mark was born and raised in Idaho, leaving the state to study theology at the Portland Bible College in Oregon, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in 1977. Also in Portland, Mark met his wife, DD, with whom he had three children. He continued at the Bible College, teaching, directing Christian education, and leading worship. He ultimately joined the pastoral team and participated in the Bible Temple Eldership.
However, in the early 1990s, Pastor Mark and his wife felt that the time was ripe to return to Idaho. They moved to Meridian, where they opened Harvest Church after much prayer and counsel.
Based in Idaho, Harvest Church Meridian offers a wide range of ministries, one of which is worship. Harvest Church Meridian has a passion for worship teaches and that the Bible is the true Word of God and provides a clear pattern for authentic worship.
Biblical praise and worship enables Christians to honor the King of kings in an atmosphere of faith and energy. It isn't about styles or trends, but about genuine and heartfelt adoration of our Lord and Savior. You will find "Harvesters" singing because Psalm 95:1 says, "Oh come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation." There will be dancing because Psalm 149:3 says, "Let them praise Him with the dance; Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.". Clapping isn't just something to do with your hands to keep them busy, but an act of obedience to Psalm 47:1 which says, "Clap your hands, all you people! Shout to God with a voice of triumph!". Sometimes there are special moments in a service where the congregation will kneel in God's presence because Ps 95:6 says, "Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our God our Maker".
Sunday morning worship is not only a time for believers to be refreshed, but a time to give their all to the Lord. As you pour out your praise on the Lord, His Presence fills the room and satisfies the longing soul. Worship is about giving honor where honor is due. And in the giving, you will discover the secret of His Presence!
