Hi! We are Keith and Nola Kurber, the pastors at Harvest. Keith is a retired Colonel of Special Forces, Nola is a former elementary school teacher, and we are both ordained ministers. We have been in church ministry for 20 plus years, married for over 35 years, and we have four adult children and 12 grandchildren.
While stationed in Germany, we were baptized in the Holy Spirit and our lives have never been the same. A few years later, in 1991, Keith left an active duty career in the U.S Army to attend Rhema Bible Training Center (now College) in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Keith graduated in 1993, and we moved to Fairbanks, Alaska, and served a local church there until 2004. We moved to the Mat-Su Valley and assumed the leadership of a church in Wasilla in 2005. God called us to back to Fairbanks and Harvest was started in the fall of 2010, fulfilling what God had put on our hearts 22 years earlier. We are passionate about following Christ and doing our part to fulfill the Great Commission here in the city of Fairbanks. We are also passionate about people and helping them grow into every good thing that God has for them.
