The origins of the 28twelve Foundation date back to the founding of the Harvey Fellows Program in 1992 under the direction of the Mustard Seed Foundation. In 2019, 28twelve took over the Harvey Fellows program and is now a growing Christian Vocational Leadership Ministry. In so many ways we live in a world in need of restoration and we need to raise up leaders of integrity and courage to bring virtue and hope as they solve the problems of today and tomorrow. Because no one needs to change the world on their own.

Our Purpose

Why We Exist

28twelve Foundation exists to assist Christian scholar leaders in the integration of faith and vocation so that they might, through their work, help restore the world for Christ.

“The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none” Deut. 28:12

Our Vision

Our Picture of the Future

To create, restore and renew structures, institutions, and culture to impact society for Christ through strategic vocation, on Earth as it is in Heaven.

“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven…” Matthew 6:10

“You’ll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew, rebuild the foundations from out of your past. You’ll be known as those who can fix anything, restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate, make the community livable again.” Isaiah 58:12, the Message

Our Mission

What We Do

The 28twelve Foundation exists to identify, inspire and integrate followers of Christ to be leaders, influencers and restorers through courageous and faithful vocation around the world in order to redeem culture and that all may come to know the saving love of Jesus.

John 17:4 – I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work that you gave me to do.

Or as translated in the Message, “I glorified you on earth by completing down to the last detail what you assigned me to do. “

Ministry Areas


Primarily through the Harvey Fellows program, we Identify and bless Christian scholars who are positioned to be leaders in strategic fields. At present and for strategic reasons, we focus on identifying graduate student leaders in fields where Christians have been traditionally underrepresented. Future plans include identifying mid-career and late-career scholar leaders.


We help Christian leaders Integrate their faith and vocation. For example, our Summer Institute and Integration Conference each equip and ground scholar leaders with tools for Christian spiritual formation as they discern their vocational vision. Future plans include the launch of vocational-specific working groups to support Christ-centered, world-changing work.


We aim to Inspire Christian leaders of vocational courage and integrity though prayer, community gatherings, vocational relationships, and life-changing experiences. Our mentorship ministry aids in this endeavor alongside the accountability and support of the Harvey Fellows Community. Future plans include the 30th Anniversary and Reunion Celebration in June 2023.
