Harvest Word Ministry


Apostle Hattie B. Stancil

Dr. Hattie B. Stancil is a person of integrity whom people place a great deal of trust. She is very responsible and a person of excellent character. She encourages and motives people to new heights. Dr. Hattie B. Stancil is a profound leader pastoring four churches in four cities, Harvest Word, Zebulon, NC, Harvest Word, Charlotte, NC, Barbee’s Chapel Harvest Word, Chapel Hill, NC and Barbee’s Chapel Harvest Word in Sanford, NC.
Dr. Stancil received her Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degrees in Religion at the New Life Community Church School of Ministry in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina in 2003 through 2006. For seven years, after receiving her master’s degree and Doctorate, she became a faculty member at the NLCC School of Ministry. An educator and an advocate for education, in 2006 Dr. Stancil launched the Safe Haven Interdenominational Bible College and Training Institute which flourishes to this day.
Dr. Stancil is a devoted civic and community servant. She founded the Esther House Outreach Ministry (Zebulon) providing resources and life skill training to women who needed a second chance in life. In 2015, she established the Esther House Thrift Store designed to provide high quality clothes and household items at affordable prices. The “Parents without Partners” Program she created is a spinoff from the Esther House Ministry. It trains women to set life and family goals while teaching them skills to manage their lives, rear their children and make wise use of their finances. Presently, the Esther House program she originated provides transitional housing and counseling to single women who are getting their lives back on track.
In 2015, the Esther House Ministry was the recipient of proceeds from a partnership between Olin T. Binkley Baptist and Barbee’s Chapel Harvest Word Churches. This large award allowed Ester House to renovate several homes for families and individuals in need of housing.
Her prowess as an author and playwright came to fruition in 2014 and 2015 with the production of an original stage play entitled, “From Then Until Now” chronicling the spiritual and historical journey of African Americans in the United States from slavery until the present. This play has been presented in numerous cities to date. Her first book of poetry, “A Voice from All of Us”, was published in 2015 raising awareness of the plight of people and their life situations all around us.
