2009 Year End Report

Western Harvest Ministries, Inc.

Tentative 2009 Calendar of Events and Proposed Projects


  • Life Builders State Wide Men’s Conference

April 24 and 25, 2009 in Clermont, Florida – www.lifebuilders.com  Dr. Leonard C. Albert,  Department of Lay Ministries and Executive Director is going to be assisting WHM/CTB/Team SWJ riders with many new avenues in Discipleship strategies and recourses.  Our goal is to facilitate ministry teams, men bonded together in love for Jesus and each other, discipled in the essentials of Christianity, instructed to interact with people around them in a Christian way, and sent forth in service to the lost and hurting world around them. Men’s ministries must become more relational if it is to be meaningful, both to men newly saved or for those who have walked with the Lord for many years.
