Senior Pastors Dr. Mario Ybarra and Debi Ybarra founded World Harvest Church of Yuma in 2001, boldly proclaiming that “If you give God one year, he will give you a better life.” World Harvest Church is located in the sunniest city in the United States, Yuma Arizona. WHC is an unashamed light in the world (Matthew 5:14) that represents life today with the power of the Holy Spirit.

Dr. Mario Ybarra and Debi Ybarra have become prominent members of the Yuma community founding a local charter school in 2001. Since then, the school has expanded enrollment opportunities to three campuses Yuma,  San  Luis,  and Goodyear, Arizona.
