The Evangelical Counsel of Financial Accountability (ECFA) conducted an onsite visit on December 10, 2018, with church CFO Jeff Sharda and church Treasurer/Executive Committee Elder Jeff Smith. After several hours of closely examining the many financial accusations leveled against Harvest, particularly related to our various entities in broadcast and church planting, ECFA issued the following:

“As part of its ongoing compliance review process, ECFA staff were on-site at Harvest Bible Chapel earlier this month. Of particular interest was the church’s compliance with ECFA’s Standard 6, Compensation-Setting and Related-Party Transactions. Harvest Bible Chapel is in full compliance with each of ECFA’s Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship and remains a member in good standing with ECFA.”

Other matters raised in recent attacks on Harvest Bible Chapel’s financial integrity are fully answered by Capin Crouse audits here and here.
