Vision casting for the establishment of a Harvester HOME global network.
By Apostle Aje and Chantal Pelser, August 2021
Necessity is the birthplace of invention!
The context of the vision for establishment Harvest online member equipping hubs globally has to do with the way we intend to continue fulfilling the great command to love and commission to go and make disciples of all nations. Harvester Reformational Church Cape Town is posed like no other church, to reach all the nations of the earth, with kingdom resources and apostolic team ministry that focus on seeing Christ formed in people.
In addition, our building project is set to start in September again and we are currently not allowed to gather in the school venue that has graciously accommodated us for so long. An interesting fact about De Tyger is that most churches that have used the facility, have gone onto their own church buildings from there. We are positioned for growth and we have fulfilled the prophecy of thirty years to be a city-wide church. We have five strong regions with equipped saints and area shepherds in place to reach out further and ripple into communities with the Gospel of peace.
Our Miracle Bible training Centre resources have been released on YouTube and our digital transformation of our material is ready for online access with a team of mentors ready to teach and instruct.
Now is the best time ever to expand our vision to be a global church with Harvest HOME hubs wherever there are Harvesters who want to partner with us. This is especially for past members who have immigrated to regions where there are no Reformational churches and who want to help us by making their homes available to become a HOME for harvest. We have also seen that many of our friends abroad have been watching our online live streamed services for years and have faithfully supported our vision and missions. We wish to extend them our Harvester Online Membership Equipping pack that contains a digital certification of membership, along with several MBTC subjects, books, music and media samples, in addition to online communication links directly with our leadership in Cape Town, South Africa. HOME members will gain access to our church application that will be rolled out in the near future that will also set them on a spiritual growth that has been tailor-made for their advancement in the kingdom of God. Options for Bible cell plants and HOME watch hubs where friends and families can be invited for live streamed, interactive meetings through our media platforms, will become available immediately once all requirements for POPIA laws are satisfied and the HOME formed has been digitally filled in online.
The Concept of HOME stands for:
Here are some scriptures that reveal the benefits of becoming a Harvester Online Member Equipped for the work of the ministry:
The complete concept of welcoming people to their spiritual ‘home’ is derived from many testimonies of people who have attended our church meetings that say: “I have found spiritual home” and “I feel at home in your meetings.” Indeed, we often describe our services like being “in our Father’s lounge” in the sense that we understand the Father saying to us: “All I have is yours!” It is His good pleasure to give us the kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
We are at home with you through technology and now we are opening up our live streamed services for interactive communications via Restream and other platforms like Facebook where HOME participants can share a prophecy, comment on worship, testify, pray and ask for intercession for specific needs live.
The “love and laughter that we are all after” is one of the reasons members stay for life in a church that has been tested through many trials and is now seeing a harvest in the nations. I believe God is giving us a new harvest in the city too, and now online where people have tuned into our frequency of faith. We also believe that HOME will become a portal for many to return to Jesus and truly find their spiritual homecoming with us.
Harvester – pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers in the field, for the harvest.
Mat 9:35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
Mat 9:36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.
Mat 9:37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.
Mat 9:38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
Lift up your vision and see all around you – the harvest is white – don’t say four months left till harvest – the field of influence in your life are already ripe for harvest.
Joh 4:34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.
Joh 4:35 Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!
Online access to resources and interactive care is not available to subscribers on YouTube, because the channel doesn’t reflect data of viewers. To take the next step I discipleship, membership and data sharing needs to be agreed upon and all the laws of personal information need to be satisfied. This online option is a portal to localizing church in your home, which serves several purposes including safety during a pandemic. Online access to MBTC and Harvester leaders equipping sessions like our workers meetings will become accessible to the HOME members as well.
Bu the ‘O’ in ‘HOME’ should also remind us of the nature of God, Who is Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent!
Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
Mat 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Mat 28:20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Paul in Corinth
Act 18:1 After these things Paul departed from Athens and went to Corinth.
Act 18:2 And he found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla (because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to depart from Rome); and he came to them.
Act 18:3 So, because he was of the same trade, he stayed with them and worked; for by occupation they were tentmakers.
Act 18:4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded both Jews and Greeks.
Act 18:5 When Silas and Timothy had come from Macedonia, Paul was compelled by the Spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus is the Christ.
Act 18:6 But when they opposed him and blasphemed, he shook his garments and said to them, “Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean. From now on I will go to the Gentiles.”
Act 18:7 And he departed from there and entered the house of a certain man named Justus, one who worshiped God, whose house was next door to the synagogue.
Act 18:8 Then Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his household. And many of the Corinthians, hearing, believed and were baptized.
Act 18:9 Now the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent;
Act 18:10 for I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city.”
Act 18:11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
Member – become a member in a living, vibrant church that has global impact through missions and a network of a confederation of churches in four continents. We are reaching new frontiers and wish to inspire divine connections through this initiative. Prophecies have indicated that nations will come to us because we have continually spent all we have to go to nations! Another prophecy about us building a broadcast facility is being fulfilled as we restart the building of our church and studios in Burgundy Estate, Cape Town. It will be a place to train and equip the saints on all levels and it overlooks the city form a hill.
The church facility is a converging point of all our spheres of influence and ministries including:
• Harvester International Ministries, synergy of leaders, global summits, networking and training, ordination and sending out ministries to plant new works.
• Harvester Reformational Church, local and global HOME church network
• Pelser Media for resources, productions and art with a mission
• Miracle Bible Training Centre: live streamed bible training and performing arts workshops
• Property Development for His kingdom: we are building many churches for God!
Our communion with Jesus Christ through His body the church is celebrated weekly and wherever we gather in public and from home to home.
Act 20:20 how I kept back nothing that was helpful, but proclaimed it to you, and taught you publicly and from house to house,
1Co 12:12 For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.
1Co 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
1Co 10:17 For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.
The fresh bread of revelation that we prepare diligently as leaders and bake fresh for you is carefully considered and curated for your balanced spiritual growth and wellness. We share our recipes with members so that they can also bake fresh bread for those they disciple too! Smell the fresh baked bread in the house!
Equip – our ministry celebrates fivefold ministry and relates to other ministers in a global confederation that serve from church to church called an Apostolic council. This passage in Ephesians summarizes the purpose of equipping the saints for the work of the ministry, to the full measure of the stature of Christ, but also to develop mature Christians who can stand in the storms and contribute to the growth of the body in love:
Eph 4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
Eph 4:12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
Eph 4:13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
Eph 4:14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,
Eph 4:15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—
Eph 4:16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
It is so good to open up membership to a broader audience and we are excited to meet you in person hopefully soon! We are dedicated to see Christ formed in people and to love and serve for the glory of God’s kingdom. We have a creed and tenets of faith that we can share with you too:
AS WE CONTINUE to practice doing just as He tells us to do in His Word, life completely changes for us. We will have a completely different perspective and will come to have an entirely new attitude toward life, things and people!
KINGDOM OF GOD – ROM 14:17: its characteristics are described as righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. The eternal chaos in the world due to the tares has not prevented the growth of the wheat. (The world was created out of chaos by the Word of God).
OUR PRIVILEGE: to reign with Christ. Enter in on it by faith. We have been made to “sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”. We are to be more than conquerors. Sin shall not have dominion over us. Sin, sickness and Satan are banished from the glorious realm in which God’s children are called to live. Jesus is our KING, we are His Kingdom. HIS WILL is our highest desire and the extension of His Kingdom our sole occupation. All else will be added unto us. Our occupation is rulership, not defeat!

1.1 Besides the three basic truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, namely the Incarnation Atonement and Resurrection of Christ, the Christian practice of this ministry subscribes to the following significant practices and beliefs as set forth in the Holy Scriptures:

1.3 Trinity of the Godhead
1.4 Repentance and Regeneration
1.5 Water Baptism (Mat 28:19)
1.6 Baptism of the Holy Spirit, with initial evidence of speaking with other tongues as the spirit gives utterance. The Pentecostal experience as set forth in Acts 2:4

THE SEVEN TENETS OF FAITH.
2.1 We see Harvester International Ministries as a Christ-centered church, where every activity, program and person revolves around Christ and not man. In this household every member should know who he or she is in Christ as a present day reality.
2.2 We see the worship within Harvester International Ministries as being spontaneous, creative, in spirit and in truth, with a liberty and freedom that is pleasing to God and accomplishes His purpose. This worship will resonate the current sound of the apostolic and prophetic intent.
2.3 We see the structure of Harvester International Ministries on all levels and relationships (from local bodies to global networks) not as a pyramid but rather as different planets revolving around “the Son” in their orbits. This structure recognizes apostolic oversight and prophetic input as a present day reality, where the members understand their function and are released into their ministries with the willingness to be corrected and disciplined when necessary.
2.4 We see the leadership within Harvester International Ministries, as being based on the model of servant hood, fathering and mentoring. In this model leaders understand and profess their gifting, calling and function.
2.5 We see prayer in Harvester International Ministries as being accurate, governmental and prophetic so that the church becomes a house of prayer for all nations. Such prayer needs to be birthed in expectant waiting on the Lord.
2.6 We see the mission and strategy of Harvester International Ministries to include the raising up of Kingdom strongholds within the enemy’s territory with the purpose of reconciling man to God and man to man in Jesus Christ.
2.7 We see the reformation of Harvester International Ministries as being a continuous process transforming the members individually and corporately into the image of Christ. This reformation calls the church to embrace paradigm shifts and to move in the frequency of the Holy Spirit.
3.1 The purpose of Harvester International Ministries is to fulfil the great the great command to love God and humanity and the great Commission as set forth in Mat 28:19 and 20 by the Lord Jesus Christ, Head of the Church, concentrating on the South first (Cape Town as Head Office) and then circling out to other parts of the Country and all over the World according to Acts 1:8. “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14
3.2 This Gospel of the Kingdom can be summarized to include Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit, according to Romans 14:17, and it is an eternal Gospel that needs to be preached to every nation, tribe, tongue and people according to Rev 14:6.
3.3 We are co-labourers with Christ Jesus as He builds His Church, with living stones, cemented together by love and founded on apostles and prophets with Jesus Christ the Chief Cornerstone.
3.4 Our priority is spiritual work and assistance in the greater Body of Christ, through the establishment of Churches and Bible Colleges that accurately represent Jesus Christ’s original blueprint for his Eternal Church. The Church of the Firstborn registered in heaven. According to Hebrews 12:22-24.
