Let us worship Christ together!

Berlin, Germany Ministry

Scott and Kris Poling moved to Larimore, ND in 1993 through the United States Air Force.  After being in the Air Force since 1986, Scott came to Harvest Baptist Church (formerly New Testament Baptist Church) believing that he was saved.  It took a few years of strong Bible preaching for the Holy Spirit of God to chip away at his heart and reveal that what he had been clinging to since his youth, was not genuine.

Scott was saved in 1997 and soon after, began to feel the leading of the LORD to enter Christian Education. That is when God began molding a new direction for the Poling family.

In 1999-2000, Scott took over the leadership of our K-12 Christian School.  He faithfully served eighteen years in that capacity until the LORD burdened his heart about the mission field of Berlin, Germany.  While in the Air Force as an Air Traffic Controller, Scott was stationed at the Berlin Air Route Traffic Control Center.  He had the privilege of working the famed air corridors to Berlin that were established in 1948.  He was able to see History being made when the Wall between East and West came down, once again uniting East and West Berlin.

Both Scott and Kris faithfully served many years in the ministries of HBC.  Scott taught and led the Youth of our church and Christian School, and Kris used her talents in music, as our church accompanist.

God used their time in the military to prepare Scott’s heart for a future ministry among the German people.  After his call to preach, the Poling’s began to prepare themselves for the mission field.  They were commissioned and sent out in July 2017, through the Authority of our church.

God has shown Himself sufficient for the task ahead of teaching, nurturing, reaching and establishing a scriptural church in the very needy and dark city of Berlin.

Isaiah 61:1 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;”
