The Highlands Student Ministry

Mission Statement

The Highlands Youth Ministry exists to glorify God as we seek to impact Middle and High School students and their families, challenging them to a complete commitment to follow Jesus Christ.

In the Highlands, we believe there is no junior Holy Spirit. God seeks and desires to equip and use teenagers for the benefit of the Kingdom. Each week we work on cultivating a culture that calls each student higher. Our main priority is the revelation of their identity in Christ, which we believe leads to an Authentic Faith in Jesus.


Each week students will encounter Word-based teaching, intimate corporate worship, and life-changing small groups. We also understand that teenagers are just that, teenagers! Don’t worry. We have engaging and fun games each week as well!

Throughout the year, we have multiple opportunities and efforts to get students outside our church facility’s walls. We believe that, oftentimes, real-life change happens outside of our comfort zones. These efforts manifest themselves in retreats, quarterly Excursions, Cross & Towel (local summer missions), and many other ways!

Show me your friends, and I'll show you your future!
