Bishop Oscar & Brenda Harmon
Bishop Oscar & Sis Brenda Harmon have been attending Jubilee Worship Center for 6 and a half years and have been working in Leadership for 5 and a half. They head up our Evangelism Team and work hard to spread the gospel to every corner of Northwest Indiana.
They both started their dedicated walk with Christ 22 years ago. They have served in ministry and have held various Leadership positions for 19 of those years.
Since establishing membership with JWC in April 2008, Bishop Harmon, along with his wife, have continued to be involved in ministry. They have served in leadership over the Outreach Ministry where they implement year-round evangelistic community outreach events. These events are designed to seek and to save the lost; and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to unbelievers. In addition to these O/R events, they also teach soul winning classes necessary for equipping members and non-members with the skills for effective witnessing.
The Harmon family includes 5 adult children, 9 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild and have lived in the Hobart community for over 13 years.
As they continue to serve in Leadership and to preside over the Evangelism ministry, it is the goal of Bishop & Sis Harmon to add "The pocket Testament League," and Evangelism Ministry, "The Tract Ministry" and a "Salvation Kit" a package designed especially for new converts in Christ to help with their spiritual growth and development.
It is their earnest desire to always be a part of the Great Commision to win souls for Christ to enlarge the Kingdom of God, and to train all believers to be active participants in the harvest; "Go ye therefore into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved." Mark 16:15-16a is the foundation of our ministry.
