A note from rick

The Harbor is excited to announce that Jeff Maness will be joining our church as our next Senior Pastor when I retire in 2022. Jeff was the founding pastor of Element Church in Cheyenne, Wyoming, where he has served as Element's Lead Pastor since 2008. 

Jeff is a gifted and passionate communicator who strives to speak the truth of God’s Word in a relevant way. Jeff is driven to help people experience life to its fullest in Christ.

Jeff attended and graduated from Oklahoma Wesleyan University in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, in 1997 with a degree in Pastoral Ministry. He and his wife Sabrina have four children (Jonah, Mariah, Makalah, and Jaydah).

In line with Jeff's gift of communication and his call to introduce people to Jesus and help them become fully devoted followers of Him, he has also written several books and writes and produces a high-impact podcast with Sabrina.

To help you get to know Jeff better as his transition to being on-site at The Harbor unfolds in the beginning months of 2022, you will find some links below that may be of help.

Thank you in advance for your prayers for The Harbor, for the Maness Family, and for all God wishes to accomplish through this season to come to stunning fruition.
