Kurt Gebhards

As of August 1, 2018, Kurt is being sent (at his request) to pursue starting a new church with Vertical Church Network in central California. Since his arrival almost three years ago, the goal has been to restore the Gebhards family to a Senior Pastor, full-time preaching position. Kurt has served well at our Rolling Meadows Campus and we release him with joy.

Janine Nelson

As of July 31, 2018, Janine Nelson transitioned from serving full-time as Executive Director of Walk in the Word to return to Michigan for family reasons. Over 13 years in leadership, the ministry multiplied many times over in both radio and television. We are thankful for her faithful service.

Resignation Letter


R. T. Maldaner

As of January 31, 2018, R. T. Maldaner will have completed his 2.5 year tenure on staff at Harvest in various campus ministry roles, most recently as Campus Pastor of Connections on the Elgin Campus. Over the course of time, the Executive Leadership Team and R.T. agreed that his passions and convictions about theology (reformed), staff management, and other matters make his continuance on staff less than best for him and for Harvest. With the mutual sense that the Lord is leading R.T. to pursue other ministry opportunities, we are grateful for the grace he is showing in embracing this transition and his shepherding abilities will be missed. We wish R.T. and his wife Sarah God’s best in a ministry assignment more aligned with his views.
