Harvest School 39 will be a traveling school to Israel, South Africa, & Mozambique.
Iris Harvest School of Missions (HS39)
Applications open until Aug 10, 2023
Harvest School is a Spirit-filled hands-on missions school that trains, equips and sends out radical lovers of Jesus to the ends of the earth.
Some have called it a honeymoon with Jesus, but they all come away saying their lives have been changed forever.
“Come away with me, come away
It's never too late, it's never too late
It's not too late for you
I have a plan for you, I have a plan
It's gonna be wild
It's gonna be great
It's gonna be full of me.”
Song by United Pursuit written at the mission school in Pemba
Jesus is inviting you to come away, to be set apart, to commune with the Lord, to consecrate yourself, to worship and to seek the Holy One of Israel, to meet face-to-face with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. After an intimate time with Him in Israel, we will leap into the burning bush of Africa… the hunger, the fire, the passion, the worship, the glory!
Come away with our Beloved to HS39 and step into the flame to be consumed and carry the revival fire to the nations!
The school will begin in God’s Holy Land. Come journey in the land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the land of our heritage. The Bible comes alive as we walk where Jesus walked, in the very places where biblical stories were birthed. From baptisms in the Jordan River, to the waterfalls of Ein Gedi, to floating in the Dead Sea, to camel rides in the desert and watching the sunrise over the Negev, each day will be its own adventure. This is a time to receive God’s heart for Israel and His covenant people and to understand His plan of redemption from a biblical perspective. Come, be taught by Heidi and Israeli leaders and join in worship and intercession throughout the land.
We will spend a day set apart to commune with the Lord in the desert… the place where God speaks, where God called to Moses from within the bush and Moses responded, “Here I am.” We have no agenda but to consecrate ourselves, worship and seek the Holy One of Israel, to meet face to face with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. You will leave forever marked to carry the heart of God from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth.
We join with the declaration of Reinhard Bonnke that is echoing through the land: “Africa shall be saved”. As the deaf hear and the blind see and the lame walk and village after village hear the gospel, the kingdom marches forward into the depths of Africa. The sounds of the drums, the smoke of the fires, the laughter of the children, and the joy of new life as his love invades heart by heart, hut by hut and village by village.
We will do life in villages: spending time with the locals, cooking over the fires, carrying water from the river, going on outreach in the bush-bush, dancing with the children and learning to communicate in new cultures. We will go to the high hills to worship on the mountains and make declarations over these villages that stretch as far as the eye can see. It’s the song of the redeemed rising from the African plains and all God’s children singing Glory, Glory, Hallelujah He reigns! The people are beautiful, the harvest is ripe and the Kingdom is breaking forth in Africa.
There will also be an opportunity to go on safari and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation and magnificent wildlife.
Harvest School has been taking the seeds from Mozambique and scattering them in the nations from the time we have been out of Pemba. It is with great joy that we are stepping in again to this land where his presence and power are tangible and where life and death are an everyday experience. You experience the reality of the power of God in some of the most desperate places.
You think you are going to serve but actually you are entering into the classroom of the Lord as you learn the secrets of the kingdom from the poor and the children. Love looks like something as we go to places where the needs are great and the people are hungry not only for their daily bread but also for the manna from heaven that brings beauty and love, healing and joy into every part of their lives.
Experience His Fire, His Passion and Glory in our classes and in the villages that overflow with His presence. You will become fully alive and swept away in wholly-abandoned worship. The Holy Spirit crashes in day by day, releasing his passion and compassion, personal transformation, healing, identity, and destiny.
You will be traveling to different areas and bases throughout the land. Teams from past schools have shared incredible reports - many salvations, the blind could see, the deaf could hear, the lame walked, the dead were raised, food was multiplied, diseases were healed, and many were delivered from spiritual oppression.
We expect to preach the gospel, minister to those in need and see God work in amazing ways. You will be able to display the love of Christ, to speak identity and destiny to the precious people of Mozambique as you walk beside the national leaders and Iris missionaries who have left their families, homes, and countries to carry the gospel to the ends of the earth.
God is calling His sons and daughters to GO into ALL the earth, that His house may be full! Iris Harvest School of Missions is preparation for harvesting the nations. For this purpose, Iris Global is offering this international, missions training intensive. We invite you to come and be trained on the field. Live, love and learn from the poor.
There is a new breed of missionaries being released across the earth, transparent saints with hearts beating in rhythm with their Bridegroom King Jesus, carrying His glory across the earth. Fearless, laid-down lovers who know a love that has no boundaries and are ready to run into the darkest places of the earth—lavishing love on the lost, the dying, the poor and the broken. Jesus came with constant love for both the one and the masses. Now we must do the same: stop for the one, but believe for the multitudes.
Following the school, there will be opportunities to go on optional international “extended outreaches”. We will travel in small teams throughout the nations on extended outreaches to experience cross-cultural missions and learn about the Kingdom from the poor and the children. We will pray for the sick, visit homes, minister in the streets and church services, and participate in practical missions as we serve, love, and minister to the least of these. Be sure to check what outreaches are available in your acceptance material.

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”

With much love in Jesus,
