Located in Allen directly across the street from one of the largest high schools in Texas, The Harvest is a youth focused church that fills out its sanctuary on Wednesday and Thursday nights each week with the up and coming young adults of tomorrow. One of the main purposes of this blog is to use photography as a way to highlight different people, places and events going on around you every day in your community, and I could think of no better place to start than the church that has been our home for the last couple of years.
The MVMNT is a crazy, spirit filled night of worship and preaching lead by Chase Burnett and The MVMNT band with a message by Pastor Dustin Bates. They have a more youth based service on Wednesday nights, and a young professional oriented service on Thursday nights for young adults. It’s hard to walk out of a service after a night of worship and hearing Dustin preach without being completely inspired and yes, sometimes convicted in the best way possible. It’s open for anyone to attend, and I’d highly recommend visiting atleast once for yourself or your kids sooner than later!
The Harvest is growing fast, with 4 services on Sunday mornings and is in the process of fundraising for its new expansive building project to be located right of Greenville and Rivercrest.

As for the photos, I was using my Canon 60D with a 50mm 1.8 prime lens and no flash. Would have definitely preferred a zoom, but my 18-135mm kit lens just won’t hold up in the low light. I tried not to be much of a distraction so I wasn’t able to get too close and didn’t have many options on what angles to get, and I’m having to get used to the noise in some pictures due to the low light and no tripod, even starting to enjoy it as a more film like look for some shots. Overall I was pretty happy with how they turned out, let me know what you think!
