Harold and Linda Eberle are the founders of Worldcast Ministries and pastored a church for six years beginning in 1980. After a fruitful season pastoring, Harold felt a call to travel and minister to the larger Body of Christ. Since that time, Harold has become known in churches around the world. He is a popular conference speaker and visiting instructor at numerous Bible Colleges. Linda is an elementary school teacher, but travels with Harold throughout the summer and during school breaks.
In 30+ years of ministry, Harold has dedicated about 2/3 of his energies toward the United States, while the other 1/3 is invested in foreign countries. Harold has ministered in dozens of countries, with special focus on the Philippines, Africa and the Middle East.
Although Harold previously spent time in Israel, he didn’t begin any ongoing ministry in the Middle East until visiting Pakistan in 2010. After teaching Christian leaders for a week and taking part in open air crusades where thousands of people committed their lives to Jesus Christ, Harold’s heart was captured.
Worldcast Ministries has helped establish two Bible Schools in Pakistan to train five-fold ministers and other leaders. The first graduation was held in September of 2011, when 72 students graduated from their first year of training. (Details and names of individuals are withheld because of safety concerns.)
Worldcast Ministries, with the help of Harold’s home church (Yakima Foursquare Church in Yakima, WA) also financed four open air crusades in 2011, where approximately 19,000 people committed their lives to Jesus Christ.
In addition, Worldcast Ministries is involved in humanitarian aid to the Pakistani people, especially those who lost everything in the mass flooding which recently took place. We help our friends in Pakistan provide food, water and medical treatment for those in need.
Harold’s next Middle East trip is planned for Dubai where he will minister at a leadership conference and discuss with the local pastors the feasibility of starting another Bible Training center there.
