12/30/2018 6:13:00 AM Dan Korzep: New Pastor At Harvest Church
Wayne Howard Staff Writer
Dan Korzep says his main duty as the new pastor at Lincolnton's Harvest Church on Lithia Inn Road will be "teaching God's word." Korzep has been doing that for over three decades.
He and wife Crystal arrived in Lincolnton shortly before Christmas. They had lived in Massachusetts, where he had served with Barnabas Ministries, a pastoral counseling service.
For most Lincoln Herald readers, knowledge of Harvest Church is probably limited to ours prior to meeting with Dan on Friday: it's on Lithia Inn Road close to Country Club Road. Harvest Church is a small church--with less than three dozen members. It's affiliated, Dan told us, with the Presbyterian Church in America, which he described as conservative and evangelical. It's the only PCA church in Lincoln County (the nearest other PCA church is in Hickory).
Dan and Crystal have five children (all adults) and five grandchildren. Crystal is a homemaker; Dan is also an author ["How to Rescue Your Marriage (2013)"--available on Amazon Kindle, $2.99].
Before working with Barnabas Ministries in Massachusetts, Dan served as a pastor in North Dakota and Nebraska. Having spent his adult life in the ministry, he got his master's degree from the Reformed Episcopal Seminary near Philadelphia, PA.
Dan is a historian (one of the administrators of a Facebook group "Reformed Study of Church History") and an accomplished musician (whose interest in music you'll quickly see if you visit his Facebook timeline; he's a brass band enthusiast).
He will be installed by the Presbytery this Sunday evening at 6 at the church, 707 Lithia Inn Road.
