Harvest Information Standards (HIS) is a cooperative venture of organizations that share a desire to facilitate the task of taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to all the people of the world. HIS assists mission sending groups in fulfilling their portion of the task, by improving data sharing through the standardizing of codes and categories for common data sets.

HIS Registries

Active registries within the Harvest Information Standards include the Registry of Geography (ROG), Registry of Languages (ROL), Registry of People (ROP), Registry of Ministry Resources (RMR), and Registry of Dialects (ROD). A Registry of Religions (ROR) is supported although not as an adopted standard. A Registry of  Ministry Agencies (RMA) has been proposed for future development.
