Harvest University to Register as Historic Building

Harvest University is planning to register the school building as a historic building with the state and national registry. Built in 1925, the HU campus was the first high school in town.

The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation’s historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act, the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America’s historic and archeological resources.

The recommendation for the registration was made by Fort Morgan City Council member Lyn Deal, who came to visit Harvest University on April 28, 2021.

Since late 80s, Deal has been involved with the preservation of historic building when the initiatives for historic preservations took off. She has lived in Fort Morgan for 56 years and has created a preservation board and worked with the city to pursue preservation for 30 years.

As a strong Bible-centered believer, Deal is thankful that Harvest University came so that the building would not be abandoned, but instead it will continue the history of education and continue to develop and flourish.  

HU Continues Rich History of Christian Education at Former Calvary University Campus

Harvest University, a bible-based Christian higher education institution, has been established in Colorado with the commission of training believers, in particular from East Asia, in the understanding of the Scriptures, and with the goal of sending them out to mission fields across the globe upon completion of their degrees.

The school will be conducting its activities at the former Calvary University Innovation Center in Fort Morgan, Colorado, where the Kansas-based evangelical college historically conducted the training of their students. Harvest University hopes to continue the rich history of Christian education witnessed at Calvary University at the site, and to make a significant impact for wider evangelism in the world.

With high goals and lofty ambitions, Harvest University will be challenging the status quo and leading its students to achieve great things for God through equipping them with cutting edge curriculums and resources.

In a modern world where Christianity is often the target of ridicule and persecution, Harvest University has chosen to establish its training ground in the northeastern part of Colorado, the heartland of the United States, where religious liberty is guaranteed by the Constitution.

With the establishment of the institution in Fort Morgan, the Harvest University leadership hopes to bring about a revival through the teaching of God’s word, building a Jesus-centered community, and growing together with the student body to make an impact for Christ among the millions in desperate need of salvation.
