Athletics

When we moved from TX to IL, my first priority was to find a volleyball program for my daughters. From the day we walked into the gym to meet with David Lockwood, he welcomed us in and got my girls engaged. He walked alongside them and helped them slide right into their roles and made the transition so smooth. The athletic program at Harvest is one of the best in Chicagoland. ~Mrs. Melissa Murray, HCA parent

We believe in using athletics for the purpose of discipling our student athletes in and for Jesus Christ
