About Us


In 2015 Pastor John Secrest and his family began the journey to Naples by attending a church planter training at Harvest Bible Chapel in Chicago. In January 2016 they began the work of building a core group and planting a new Harvest Bible Chapel in Naples. The first official service launched in November 2016 at the Naples YMCA. In September 2018 Harvest Naples became the eighth campus of Harvest Chicago. After a series of difficult experiences related to this partnership a group of former Harvest Naples members asked Pastor John and his family to join them in starting a new church in Naples. In March 2019, Compass Church Naples was born!

Compass Church Naples is an independent, locally governed church. As we are getting established we have a leadership team from among the attenders helping to navigate the road toward a congregationally governed and Elder led church that makes disciples to the glory of God. We are looking to affiliate with the Evangelical Free Church of America as well as with the Great Commission Collective for the purpose of greater effectiveness in fulfilling our mission and planting more churches worldwide.
