Our leadership team model is inspired from the Five-fold ministry leadership model Paul outlines in Ephesians 4:11.
The Apostolic Leader is tasked with establishing vision, direction, and foundation for the ministry. Karen Brooks-Wells currently serves as the Servant Leader for Ekballo Harvest. Karen’s deepest passion is for the presence of the Holy Spirit. His nearness and encountering His heartbeat is the number one thing that drives Karen’s life. The vision is to see this generation walk in radical wrecked obedience to the Father’s heart.
The Evangelistic Leaders enable the church to focus on carrying out the Great Commission. Lou & Randi Esteves have a huge desire to carry Papa God’s heart to the broken and lost. Amanda ‘s fervent dedication is to see people set free from the effects of trauma. Together, the team carries a zeal for outreach, coordinated prayer walks and partnership with other ministries in our community.
The Pastoral Leader oversees relational development within the ministry (prayer ministry team, greeters, etc.). Jerry Klinger carries a huge pastoral heart and works alongside our very own Human Resources person, Cristine (Superwoman) Perez, to insure that those who walk through the doors of Ekballo and MHOP are welcomed and loved well.
The Teaching Leader helps teach core values and assists in training for those who wish to get more in involved with the ministry. Currently Teri Klinger currently serves as our Teaching Leader. As a biblical counseling teacher, Teri has a passion to see people set free and made whole through personal revelation of biblical truth.
Betty Fluharty is an anointed and gifted worshipper and has invested many hours partnering with heaven’s melodies on the keyboard in the prayer room. Her passion is to serve the body of Christ by establishing an atmosphere where believers can connect with the presence of God.
While intercessors are often not recognized in ministry, Ekballo Harvest would not be what it is without the direction and input from our Intercessory Leader, who is tasked to help determine intercessory topics in the House of Prayer. Currently Gail Okuley is serving as our Intercessory Leader. Her passion is to see transformation and a outbreak of miracles in the Lehigh Valley through prophetic prayer and praise. Gail and her husband also lead an intercessory ministry, Pray for Lehigh Valley to spur Alignment, Activation, and Acceleration in expanding God’s Kingdom.
Human Resources and Administrator:
The HRA is the heart beat of the ministry and is tasked with making sure that the practical execution of ministry tasks is accomplished efficiently and smoothly. Cristine Perez currently serves in this capacity and keeps everything organized and on point! Things get done around here because of her. Her passions include worship and biblical counseling to see people set free.
