The Student Outreach, a ministry of Harvest USA, exists to equip the Church to disciple students in biblical, Christ-centered sexuality.
We seek to partner with and equip parents, youth ministers and workers, Christian schools and colleges, those involved in collegiate ministries, and other organizations to help students follow Christ with their sexuality while finding their life, true identity, and joy in Him. We do this by providing tools and resources like our blog, seminars, presentations, mini-books, and curricula.
The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding is a nonprofit organization committed to building strong families by serving to bridge the cultural-generational gap between parents and teenagers.

Church Ministry Coordinator, Harvest USA
Though she still calls Seattle home, Brooke has lived on the east coast since 2006, when she traveled to earn her M. Div in Biblical Counseling at Westminster Theological Seminary, PA. Brooke now resides in Maryland with her cello playing husband Dan and her beyond adorable daughter Colette. Prior to her employment at Harvest USA she was given the opportunity to intern with Ellen Dykas at Harvest USA. This internship not only profoundly shaped her spiritually, but it also opened her eyes to the fact that God speaks powerfully and redemptively to all areas of sexual struggles. She handles all things related to events and church relations!

Tim has been involved with the ministry of HARVEST USA since 1997. Initially, he came for ministry, battling a twenty-year struggle with homosexuality and pornography, and after years of knowing about Christ, he at last began to understand Christ and his love. Tim’s mission is to share this same hope and truth in Jesus Christ with others who want freedom from the bonds of sexual sin, in order that they, too, might be able to walk in repentance. Tim did his undergraduate work at Community College of Philadelphia and has a Master of Divinity Degree from Westminster Theological Seminary. He is ordained as a Teaching Elder in the Presbyterian Church in America. Other than Harvest USA, Tim’s professional experience comes from careers with the Internal Revenue Service and the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals. Tim and his wife, Susan, live in the Philadelphia area and have one daughter.
