July 2016


We are excited to announce: Harvest will be merging with NextStep Resources beginning July 18, 2016. NextStep Resources in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has been helping people take the next step in their relationship with Jesus Christ through the best in Christian resources for the past 30 years. Harvest and NextStep have been serving churches together and have enjoyed a close personal friendship for many years. We are thrilled to be joining forces!

Both Harvest and NextStep distribute Sunday school curriculum, Vacation Bible School and other Christian resources from the same publishers. We will continue to provide the same first-class service you have become accustomed to with Harvest. 

Here are some things we want you to know:

  • Scott Nelsen will continue to serve as your representative. You can reach me at 800-323-3885 or via email at scott@harvestbooks.org.

  • The Harvest name and phone number 800-323-3885 will still be in use.

  • Fall 2016 Sunday school curriculum can be ordered through the Harvest website: harvestbooks.org. A new website for the combined organization will be launched soon. We will keep you informed.

  • Discounts on most Sunday school curriculum and VBS products will remain the same. 

  • Free shipping on curriculum orders over $150 will also remain the same.

  • VBS 2016 product returns from orders placed with Harvest should be returned to our warehouse — 2002 S Arlington Heights Rd, Arlington Heights, IL 60005 — no later than August 15, 2016.

  • Due to this transition, returns of VBS products purchased from Harvest by credit card may be refunded by check rather than to the original credit card.

  • Any outstanding invoices for items purchased from Harvest should be remitted to the Harvest office in Arlington Heights. Please include a copy of your invoice or statement with your payment.

  • Beginning July 18, 2016, you will receive a new Harvest/NextStep customer account number when you place your fall curriculum order.

  • Fall 2016 Sunday school orders as well as other products, such as Bibles, will be shipped and invoiced by NextStep Resources — 7890 12th Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55425. Please remit payment for new orders to NextStep Resources.

Please feel free to contact me at 800-323-3885 with any questions or concerns. We are working to make this transition as simple as possible for you.

Thank you for your faithful support of Harvest over these many years! We appreciate your patronage and value your friendship. We also look forward to continuing our service to you with this new partnership!

Serving Christ Together,

Scott Nelsen
Director, Harvest
