Ministries also reaches out through medical means, free dental camps, AIDS clinics, sewing training centers, well-digging, and a host of other mercy strategies.

The Vijaylaxmi Memorial StoneBridge School is a long-time dream of Caleb’s, finally realized in 2010. The funds for this school were raised by StoneBridge Church Community in Charlotte, NC, one of several stateside churches that partners with the Harvest leadership. This expansion of Harvest Ministries into the field of education allows them to go deeper in community transformation, since most of the students at the school will be coming from the towns and districts currently served by the Harvest pastors. Educating the students in these communities brings health and hope to the families that live in them.
