Highlands Fellowship

Hey Highlands Family,

This coming weekend is a Giant step forward for our church as we launch our NEW SITE IN BLUEFIELD,
VA.!! We will be meeting in the newly renovated chapel on the campus of Bluefield College. Service time starts at 10AM. We have a great launch team in place and last week during our run through, a lady came for the first time and surrendered her life to Christ!! GO GOD!!  Please get the word out to all your friends and family about this new opportunity.

Also this weekend I’ll be starting a brand NEW SERIES called B.Y.O.B. – BRING YOUR OWN BAGGAGE!! We all have baggage, don’t we? This is a great series to invite a friend to attend. I meet so many people who just can’t get past something that happened to them in the past. I believe God will use this series to set people free of their past in powerful ways. Pray with me as we go through this series of messages because I know the enemy loves keeping people in the chains of their past. I’m praying God will break every chain in each person’s life.


On September 16 we start our new College/Young Adult Ministry called The Listening Company. Open. Honest. Conversation. If it’s trending we’re talking about it.  For more information you can email Justin

God continues to have His Hand of favor on our church. Thanks to all of you who serve, give, invite, and love people!! We’re all about CREATING A CHURCH WHERE IMPERFECT PEOPLE LOVE TO ATTEND. We accomplish this vision by our mission of reaching our “JUST ONE’S” for Jesus. Who are you inviting? Who are you investing in? Who are you asking God to help you reach for His Kingdom?

Can’t wait to see you this weekend!

NEW SERIES: We Could Be Heroes and Lake Baptisms this weekend


Hey Highlands Family,

God continues to amaze me on how He is blessing our church!!

We just crossed over the 300 mark for first time salvations this year!! Think about this, already over 300 new believers in Jesus – changed for all eternity!! So many of you are continuing to bring your “JUST ONE’S” and they are responding to God’s amazing grace. Our 633 High School Ministry and The Edge, our Middle School Ministry, is seeing an outpouring of God’s Power and tons of middle school students and high school students are coming to know Christ!! Because of all these new believers, I can’t even begin to imagine how many we will be privileged to baptize at our LAKE COOKOUT and baptism this weekend. One of the greatest things you can do for new believers is to come and show your support for them as they go public and tell the world that they know and trust Jesus!! Remember when you were baptized and how awesome it was to have people cheering you on about your newfound faith. I hope all of you will come and pay forward your encouragement and excitement for our new family members!! Pick up your free tickets Sunday and come enjoy the cookout as well.

This weekend I’ll also be kicking off a BRAND NEW SERIES called “WE COULD BE HEROES”!! It’s going to be a fun series looking at heroes in the Bible in a fresh new way! This will be a series that will deepen your faith and help you grow closer to God!

Also, don’t forget to get your kids signed up for CAMP SUPERSONIC and MPACT! Only a few spots remain for MPACT CAMP! See any HFSM coordinator to register your middle and high school students for MPACT. CAMP SUPERSONIC will be an amazing ONE DAY CAMP that we are taking on the road to every campus! It’s priced very low so your kids can bring their unchurched friends. Our staff, residents, and summer interns are all prepared to make a WOW factor in every child’s life!! The cost is $25 per child and that includes a Camp T-shirt, lunch, incredible games, and a ton more!! Scholarships are available if your child needs one. This will be a camp that your kids will be talking about all summer!!

Weekend Update!

Hey Highlands Family,

WOW!! Last weekend at Highlands almost 200 people signed up for Financial Peace University. That’s an awesome response!! I’ve had so many emails and Facebook messages of encouragement from our current series. My prayer is that your energy bucket is full and you’re realizing the power of words on a schedule lived out!

A quick shout out to our Johnson City Campus! Last week at our 633 High School ministry they had 7 salvations and 8 baptisms!! Is that not incredible!! Only God!!

God continues to place His favor on our church. I’m humbled to be a part of all He is doing. Thank you so much for all you do, the ways you serve, and the heart you have for those far from God. There’s no church I would rather serve than Highlands. Together we will change the world for His glory.

As summer quickly approaches and everything gets busier, we wanted to make it easier on you to continue to give. We’ve come up with two options for you to try. My challenge for you for the next three months is to participate in either automated giving or smart mobile giving. Check out our website for more information

Don’t forget to sign your children up for Camp Super Sonic!! We’re bringing camp to your campus.

Or sign up your middle school or high school student for MPACT! This summer it’s a missions trip and camp all wrapped up in one!

I can’t wait to see you at church this weekend!! I’ll be introducing all of our summer interns to you. It’s going to be an AMAZING SUMMER at Highlands!! Every weekend will be God Anointed, Energy Packed, and Life Changing!!!

Can’t wait to see you this weekend!

Hey Highlands,

You don’t want to miss church this weekend. Why? Well, besides a great series for you, “COFFEE with BENEFITS”, the kids will get a bag tag while they are in their service. This series has been so much fun as we have looked at our friends and considered our future. HFKidz Bag Tag

Easter is just around the corner. Did you realize that 78% of your unchurched friends would come to an Easter service if they were invited? Don’t miss the best opportunity of the year to see your “JUST ONE” attend a service and possibly accept Christ and be changed FOREVER!! You can get your tickets online or pick them up at every campus this weekend. You can check out our Easter schedule here:
