has gone to feeding programs, orphanages and missions throughout the
world, providing .physical and spiritual food to those in need. A
number of Harvest events across the United States have been birthed
by the founding Harvest of Talents in Lincoln and have raised over
$2 million to meet hunger needs.

Christian Church. Anyone desiring information about the Harvest of
Talents ministry may call the church office at 217-732-7618.
