Harvest Time Assembly of God was first established in 1990, with Rev. Spencer & Bertha Weddle as the founding pastors. Under their fine leadership the first church building and campus were obtained. The church flourished under the Weddle’s ministry. Two other pastoral couples served at Harvest Time, following the Weddle’s years of service.
