To actively demonstrate to everyone the love of God through acts of kindness, service, generosity and care.
To feed everyone who has a need for physical sustenance. This would include individuals, families, other ministries, and agencies needing our assistance. Matthew 25:35
To point all people to faith in Christ by way of the Holy Spirit through Biblical lifestyle evangelism. 1 John 5:13
To see thousands fed the Word and thousands more provisioned with good wholesome food. Matthew 28: 18-20 & Matthew 15: 32-38
To spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, make disciples, and impact southeastern New Mexico and the world for God's glory.
To help pull the impoverished, addicted, and struggling out of hopelessness and give them “hope for today and healing for tomorrow.”
God has opened the door for us to step further out in faith by enlarging our territory. We not only distribute food, but we also partner with and make referrals to other service agencies who are able to assist our clients in other areas of need.
1 Chronicles 4:10
Our Vision and Call include reaching out nationally and Internationally by partnering and collaborating with other agencies who are involved in outreach to the poor, hungry and homeless.
Statement of Faith:
We acknowledge the Creator-God as our Heavenly Father, infinitely perfect and intimately acquainted with all our ways.
We proclaim Jesus Christ (Yeshua the Messiah of Israel) as our Lord and Savior, God revealed and manifested in human form, the object of our worship and the subject of our praise.
We recognize the Holy Spirit as the third member of the Godhead, incessantly at work convicting, comforting, guiding, and gifting. We declare that God is one God, the only God, who has revealed Himself as the Father of Creation, through Jesus His Son, through His Word (the Bible), and spiritually in our hearts through His Spirit
We affirm our confidence in God's inspired, authoritative Word. We treasure the truths of the Bible and respect its reproofs.
To God Be The Glory Forever!
Praise His Son 'Yeshua' ('Jesus' in Biblical Hebrew)!

Harvest Ministries began as a dream...
Harvest Ministries began as a dream of Pastor Rubie Rubinstein. His heart was to feed the hungry, help the hopeless, and help get the homeless off of the streets.
Now, 20 years later, Harvest Ministries is the hub of all food rescue and recovery in Chaves County, distributing hundreds of thousands of pounds of food each year.
The Roswell Homeless Coalition which began out of Harvest Ministries now operates two shelters for homeless men and women. Pastor Rubie passed on to his reward in 2016, but he left the world, especially Roswell, New Mexico, a better place.
In August of 2013, Pastor Rubie passed the baton to Pastor Mark Green who has directed the ministry since then.
