WHO WE ARE
Founded in 1994, Harvest Baptist Church has been active in the Hooksett community for over 25 years, helping those in need and sharing the good news of Jesus. Here, you will find a church family who is welcoming and caring. We love God, His Word, and our community.
MEET OUR TEAM
Our team comes from all walks of life but they all have two important things in common: a love for Jesus and a love for others. We value a willingness to serve others with integrity in our leadership group.
Josh has been serving as Lead Pastor here at Harvest since November, 2020. A native New Englander, he's served in pastoral ministry for over 25 years. Since 2001, he's been married to his beautiful bride, Jenn, and they have two wonderful daughters, Emma and Evelyn. Josh enjoys hiking, movies, collecting rare books, and his beloved Boston Red Sox.
Elder & Buildings & Grounds Deacon
Wilson serves as our other elder here at Harvest and SERVE is the operative word. In addition to the "spiritual" duties of leading, praying, and teaching, you can also regularly find Wilson mowing the lawn, shoveling the snow, fixing a toilet, and living out the servant's heart that Jesus taught. Wilson is married to his beautiful bride, Cathy, and lives with three wonderful generations of Thomas women, including his daughter, Stephanie, and granddaughter, Catherine.
Children's Ministry Deacon
Jenn, in addition to being wife to Josh and mom to Emma & Evelyn, has been serving in children's ministry for over 20 years. A high school science teacher by trade (and a former microbiologist at Pfizer), Jenn has a passion for science - studying the amazing creation of our great God. A native of Atlanta, Georgia, she also makes a mean plate of biscuits and gravy.
Community Outreach Deacon
Sarah has a passion for our community as she serves in the area of outreach (though you'll also see her up front on most Sundays with the worship team). Sarah is newly married to Luke (Spring 2023), who serves in the sound booth and lawn maintenance, and they are enjoying their new adventures together as husband and wife.
Holly does a little bit of everything here at Harvest - taking care of the books, working in the audio-visual booth, teaching a Bible study, and hosting one of our small groups. She's a huge blessing to our church family and a dedicated gramma to her three adorable granddaughters.
Prayer & Care Deacon
Charlie is one of the first faces you'll see when you come in the doors on Sunday (along with Wilson) and a friendlier face will be hard to find. Charlie loves people and serves through extended prayer and care for our little church family. He also works at the VA, serving veterans in our community. You'll also never miss Charlie during the worship as he loves to sing and also write poetry for our Lord.
