About Harvest Seekers International     


      At the age of 16, Lori Smith surrendered her life to be whatever, to do whatever, and to go wherever, God led her. After teaching school for 3 years in the United States, she followed God’s leadership to teach in Korea. Upon her return from Korea, Lori graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, with a double Masters in Religious Education and Marriage and Family Counseling. Lori has served as Minister of Childhood and Family Education, a High School counselor, and Minister of Missions. After seven years serving as Minister of Missions, Lori followed God’s leadership to focus full-time on the development of a new ministry called Harvest Seekers International. Harvest Seekers International comes alongside missionaries and churches to train, mobilize, and disciple volunteers to serve on the frontlines of missions. HSI is working with several churches serving as engaging and partnering churches in West Africa. Since 2007, HSI has walked alongside numerous volunteer mission teams serving in Mali, Niger, and Burkina Faso. Lori Smith and Harvest Seekers International long to see God’s people mobilized, trained, and empowered to join God among the nations harvesting the fruit of people brought to eternal life through Jesus Christ.
