Harvest International is a ministry that equips the saints to enter the work of their ministry. We are located in Anniston, Alabama where we open our doors for anyone here in alabama or anywhere in the world. We provide many services and social events that will allow anyone to feel at home in Anniston. These same activities and programs will also build awareness to local residents. Harvest International is unique because we receive people from all races, nationalities, ethnicities, and languages. We incorporate the different styles of worship from the different people represented in the ministry. We would like to send one minister a year to be a missionary to another country.

Harvest International Ministry began as part of Harvest Church of God in Anniston, Alabama. The ministry began as a Spanish ministry to the Hispanics in the community. As the need grew to preach in English and Spanish simultaneously, Bishop Reinaldo Whyte changed gears to receive the people who came from different cultures other than Latino. The name was then changed to Harvest International so that all are welcomed and not be limited to the language. The ministry has moved with the cloud several times. From being a Spanish ministry, to an international college student ministry, to now a predominately youth ministry and successful ministry in Japan. The ministry also has a Bilingual immersion daycare center which is one of the ministries of Harvest International.
