A Pointe of Harvest
Harvest Pointe Methodist Church is a new church in Madison, AL. Harvest Pointe was planted to join with Jesus in laboring for a harvest (Psalm 1:3-4; Matthew 9:35-38; John 15:1-17), not of crops but of people. It's what we pray for alongside Christ himself in the Spirit to the glory of the Father. We do this through preparing people for heaven by planting seeds of the Gospel in order to produce fruit for God's kingdom.
We want you to know that you're welcome here! This is a house of prayer and meeting place of Jesus Christ (Isaiah 56:7; Mark 11:17; Matthew 18:20). We seek to be faithful and obedient to Jesus' commission, found in Matthew 28:16-20 and foreseen in Genesis 12:1-3.
Our aim is to be a preserving foundation in the middle of decadence (Philippians 2:15), to add the flavor of joy to a world grown bland with sin (Nehemiah 8:10; Psalm 28:7). To expose darkness and injustice in our world by pointing to the Way, the Light himself, Jesus Christ (Isaiah 49:6; Ephesians 5:11; John 1:9). To be salt and light in our world as Jesus has told us "You are the salt of the earth...You are the light of the world" (Matthew 5:13-16).
We would love for you to join us as we join Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1). Meet us Sundays @ 10 am at 103 Gin Oaks Court, Madison, AL.
Our Story, A Church in the Making
Harvest Pointe is a new church - a church plant. All churches have a start. Harvest Pointe began in 2007 with a family, an association, and a call. Marshall and Jessica, along with their oldest son Jackson, were that family. God called them to the Huntsville/Madison area in Alabama. Unsure of their abilities but sure of their call and the One who called them, they set out on faith to plant a new church.
Our association, the Association of Independent Methodists, supported the Daigre family and the call to make disciples by starting a new church. Harvest Pointe has had so many come alongside to help. From churches to families to individuals, all have labored with us through praying for us and giving to the work.
The call was clear, "make disciples". The vision was compelling: a church producing fruit by abiding in the vine (John 15). A church moving out in mission every week for the sake of the world. A church that was growing something to share!
From one family to many families, Harvest Pointe has grown. We've not just grown numerically. We grow something every week to share with the world. A plant doesn't eat its own fruit, it's meant to share! That association of brothers and sisters that supported the church continues to lift us up to God as we continue the work. The call is stronger than ever to make disciples of all peoples starting in Madison, into north Alabama and beyond.
Harvest Pointe is a church-in-the making! We're a new work; not a finished product. Harvest Pointe is a place where real people can meet Jesus and be empowered for mission to our world. We've got so many new and exciting things on the horizon! Become part of our story as we share life together. Join with us as we grow something to share!
People ask, are we contemporary or traditional? I say, "We are traditionally contemporary!" We want to engage our rich tradition and heritage in contemporary ways. Join us for worship at 10 am on Sundays and see the ancient faith expressed in modern language and acts.
Marshall Daigre comes from a godly heritage (2 Timothy 1:5) of faith. He's a third generation preacher and lover of Jesus. He met his wife Jessica in 2003 at church, a match made in heaven. Jessica is a woman of God with a heart of love. They have four boys Jackson, Baylor, Beau, Tye, and a baby girl on the way!
Marshall was baptized as a child and came to Christ at the age of five, and lived for Jesus throughout grade, middle, and high school. On February 28, 1999, at the age of 17, he surrendered his life to God fully and was called to preach. Marshall preached his first message the next Sunday. He has a B.S. from Wesley College in Pastoral Studies and an M.Div. from Wesley Biblical Seminary, with an emphasis in Theology.
After seminary Marshall enjoyed being in the classroom so much that he sought a way back to school (not really, if you know him)! He discovered a love for teaching and currently teaches adjunctly at Calhoun Community College, the largest two-year college in Alabama. He is an instructor of Religion teaching four different classes. This has become a fruitful local ministry to the community.
In his personal time Marshall enjoys reading, gaming, fishing, softball, mountain biking, weightlifting, once a year triathlon, the Atlanta Braves and the New Orleans Saints, shooting guns, playing with his kids and dating his wife.
