World Harvest Ministries
P.O. BOX 11974 Mwanza
WHO WE ARE: World Harvest Ministries is a non denominational, International Ministry with a Mission to see Mankind set free spiritually, physically and mentally from the bondage of the enemy, to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery which from the beginning was hid in God who created all things in Jesus Christ (Eph. 3:9, 3 John 2).
OUR VISION: To win souls for our Lord Jesus Christ, train and equip saints for the task of world outreach (Mark 16:15, Matt. 28:19, Acts 1:8).
MINISTRIES: (I)Discipleship We make disciples by raising up precious men and women to bless their cities, nations and other Nations of the world with the pure and uncompromised Word of God.
(II)Prayer Evangelism: Our prayer Evangelism focuses on the thousands of people in and around urban areas, all cultural, racial and age groups, It’s in the cities where hostility and anger dominates, promiscuity and sexual perversion becomes the order of the day. Christians ought to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ which is the Power to those who believe. Prayer evangelism is indestructible strategy which will ignite godliness, discipline and integrity in the urban areas
(III)Monthly Gospel Crusade: The heart beat of this ministry is about souls and none of us, our joy is to bring the harvest in the Kingdom by preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. We conduct mass gospel crusades monthly in Africa and the world at large. We believe God to lead multitudes of souls to Jesus Christ in these gospel crusades, we also expect to see the Lord through His faithfulness and goodness doing mighty work which no eye has seen before.
(IV)School of Missions: In this school we aim to train, equip and release those called by God into the work of Ministry/Missions according to the great commission (matt 29:19, Mark 16:15).
(V)Monthly Missions Exposure: In our Monthly Missions Exposure we reach those who are in need, the down cast. We show them the love of God and encourage them to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Is not this the fast I have chosen? To loose the bands of the wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens and let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread with the hungry and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him …… Then shall thy light break forth as the morning and thine health shall spring forth speedily and thy righteousness shall go before thee, the glory of God shall be thy reward ….. And if thou draw out thy sould to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then shall thy light rise in obscurity and thy darkness be as the noon day. And the Lord shall guide thee continually and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose water fails not (Isa 58:6 – 11).

PARTNERSHIP: Partnership is a holy ordinance established by God. It’s not a marketing strategy to raise Money – it’s a way which God connects His people to each other for His cause and for what He has called us to do as the body of Christ on this earth.
Covenant partnership is a relationship – a bond between two parties who share a common goal or objective, join forces and resources in order to reach their common goal.
I believe it’s not us who choose to connect to each other, it’s God who decides and He does it for His own purpose and perfect plan for our Lives, Ministries, Careers and Businesses etc.
The Apostle Paul wrote to the church at Philippi and said “I thank my God upon every Remembrance of you always in every prayer of mine for you … for your fellowship in the gospel…(Phili 1:3 – 5).
Here, the Word ‘fellowship’ can also be translated as “partnership”, it describes a covenant relationship between two parties who have common interests, the purpose of their partnership, or covenant relationship is to accomplish something that neither of the two couldn’t do alone.
In reality Paul was telling his covenant partners in Philippi, I thank God for your communion with me in this gospel, Paul knew he couldn’t minister the gospel alone and neither could the Philippians, it took all of them together. That was Jesus cause that was God’s plan.
The Benefits of Partnership
It’s wonderful to know that when Jesus launched His 12 disciples into Ministry, He made it a point to teach them this principle concerning the rewards of partnership. We find him explaining it to them in (Math. 10:40 – 42).
Each one of us has a God – given supply of anointing to offer the rest of the body of Christ. You have a supply of God’s anointing that I need. I have a supply of God’s anointing that you need and so on but in order for that anointing to flow among us in it’s greatest potential, we must join together, we must become divinely connected. How? Through Partnership!
He that receiveth you receiveth me and he that receiveth Me receiveth Him that sent Me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of the disciple, verily I say unto you he shall in no ways lose his reward COMMITMENT: God’s word tells us that Partnership in ministry is the most powerful relationship on the face of the earth. It’s a relationship based on the blood of Jesus Christ, it’s relationship of the highest honor. Consequently it’s a relationship of the highest commitment!
It is because of this highest level of Commitment that I want you to fully understand all the aspects of being partner with All Nations Outreach Ministries.
It’s very important to know what exactly you are committing yourself to as you come to this relationship. It’s just as important for you to have an idea of what to expect from us.
OUR COMMITMENT: Reaching this WORLD is a serious business; my relationship with my Partners is serious. I and my Partners share one common goal – to reach Nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ, train and equip Saints for the task of World outreach using every possible available way by standing with us in faith and prayer we can reach All Nations of the World with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are committed to pray for our partners daily, declaring God’s promises upon their lives on their behalf and minister to them monthly.
YOUR COMMITMENT: The vision of this Ministry is to win souls for our Lord Jesus, train and equip saints for the task of world outreach. To do this, requires dedicated Co-Labourers – Partners who accept the calling of the ministry to see souls won, saints trained and equipped for the task of world outreach.
To pray for us and the Ministry To attend Partners Meetings To faithfully give financially every month To volunteer in our monthly crusades as an usher or counselor.
INVITATION: We invite you to join us in this Missions frontline, there isn’t much time remaining before Jesus comes back. Firstly before you make any decision, I ask that you pray and find out what God wants you to do in this ministry. Whatever He tells you just do it (John 2:5). Partnership is not a man made thing, it’s God ordained way to connect His people together for corporate anointing which brings about something big which one man cannot do alone In creation God did it alone, but when it comes to salvation, He doesn’t do it alone; He needs a man to work alongside Him. God wants you and me to give a hand in His business (Luke 2:48).
