Harvest of Hope Masthead

Harvest of Hope is the ecumenical study, worship, and service mission trip program of the Society of St. Andrew.

 

The goal of Harvest of Hope is to educate participants concerning the domestic and global hunger problem; encouraging them to make lifelong commitments to being part of the solution.

The Harvest of Hope Experience

Gleaning: Participants at Harvest of Hope glean crops each morning, donating the produce to local food banks and soup kitchens.

 

Study: Participants learn about domestic and global hunger. Through a variety of educational tools, coupled with the physical labor of gleaning, they begin to see that one person really can make a difference.

 

Worship: The nondenominational worship helps bring into focus the relationship between faith and service to the poor. Participants from many different faith traditions join together in worship, showing our love by our unity.

 

Meals: Good nutritious meals provided an introduction to a simple, healthy lifestyle. As part of a healthy lifestyle participants also covenant to abstain from “junk food” and soda for the entire event.

 

Commitment: Harvest of Hope is just the beginning! Participants are encouraged to take what they experience back home with them so they might impact their families, communities, and churches. Harvest of Hope challenges people of faith to respond to the call of the gospel to feed the poor, and to make service a lifestyle, rather than a once-a-year event.

 

Per-participant Costs:  Weekend $75 | Spring Break $165 | Weeklong $185
