The staff was very friendly and helpful in explaining how the volunteers are to help out. It is truly a community group that volunteers there. Everytime I went I saw new people at the building helping out. The service, distributing food to needy people and organizations is a welcome help in ANY community.
Harvest Ministries is a wonderful ministry that shares the love of Jesus with those in need. Not only do clients receive physical food from the food bank, they are given spiritual food as well. Pastor Rubie shares a message from the Bible and volunteers pray with them as well.
Harvest Ministries is a Christ lead help for many spiritially and physically hungery people. I enjoy volunteering here. The staff and the other volunteers are warm servants of God. Many more hands and hearts are needed to serve the people of Roswell with needed food, helping with job searches, and praying with them. I find that I benefit with more blessings from our clients each time I come to help.
I'm an interviewer at Harvest, so get to chat w/the people who come for help, whether it be food, bus passes, counseling or prayer--sometimes a combination of these! So many ppl are hurting financially and emotionally and leave happier and more encouraged than when they walked in the door. Over and over I hear how "blessed" they feel knowing that such a caring ministry is there for them when there is more month at the end of the money!
Harvest Ministries is such a vital ministry in our community. The needs being met here are not just physical hunger, but spiritual hunger and emotional hunger as well. I want to express that I have not just been a volunteer with Harvest before, but I have been blessed by this ministry in a time of need for my own family. We have all experienced times of struggle in our lives when we just needed someone to come along side of us to lend their arms of love to help and encourage us onward. I thank God for this ministry and its volunteers who strive to show the love of Jesus to all who walk through their doors!
For those families and individuals in our area who are suffering from devastating setbacks or are just struggling to survive, Harvest Ministries has provided wise counsel, nutritious food assistance, and an opportunity to plug into the life-changing healing and hope to be found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I started volunteering at Harvest Ministries about 7 years ago and have had many enriching and encouraging encounters with the precious people Harvest ministers to on a daily basis. I have had the privilege of sorting coats and doing laundry for our homeless population and I helped with the interior planning and design of our new Ministry Center in 2010. I have worked with the Pantry Ladies filling grocery bags for our clients who walk in the front door, and I've worked with the freight staff to process donated food and dispense it to the 18 Partner Agencies who make it possible for more of our struggling families, children, youth, homeless, senior citizens, and veterans to be reached with nutritious food choices. Harvest is makiing a huge difference!
My experience at Harvest Ministry has been very rewarding. I feel we're meeting a real and vital need of our less fortunate neighbors. I also find the folks I work with are good humored, very kind and a joy to share time with. God bless this community outreach.
As a local pastor in Roswell, NM I have seen first hand the impact that Harvest Ministries makes to people each and every day. Not only to those who enter the doors of Harvest Ministries each week, but have seen the impact to local ministries in Roswell who are supported by and partner with Harvest Ministries to meet the needs of hungry, desperate, and hurting people. Also each time I am able to volunteer or be a part of a volunteer opportunity, I am always blessed and impressed with how organized each department of the ministry is conducted. Harvest Ministries is a true reflection of Matthew 25: 37 - 40
I have volunteered for Harvest Ministries for 3 years and have found this ministry to one of great importance in Roswell and surrounding communities! Pastor Rubie has instilled in his volunteers and each person who enters the doors the importance of meeting people's physical needs with food, their emotional needs with encouragement, and their spiritual needs with prayers and scripture. Pastor Rubie goes the extra mile in each contact he has, developing Harvest to be a well oiled ministry.
Harvest Ministries of Roswell, NM I have been a volunteer at Harvest Ministries for the last two years. Even though food goes out the front door for hurting families, it is much more. Individuals are prayed for and encouraged in every day needs. One of my favorite memories is finding a cake that would work for a wedding cake after a young couple had been counciled, loved on, prayed for and given food. It felt good to be a part of the happy moments of life. Many come in feeling defeated and alone. Sometimes they need a kind word and a hug as much as they need food.
