hcONE 800x800_2Hey Highlands Family,

     This weekend Highlands launches our first album – COME INVADE!! I have heard the album, and it is awesome!! You will love listening to the songs that our own musicians have composed. You can pick up a CD or download card this weekend at every service for $10. All the money goes to reaching our JUST ONE’S around the world by helping bring influential pastors to our G3 Conference. Get yours while they last!! I am using them for Christmas gifts for all my friends!! 

Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!!

Just One Weekend 2015 – This Weekend

Hey Highlands Family,

     Our church is right in the middle of a series called, “THE VOICE”!! This has been an incredible series that God is using in amazing ways. Over 100 people have made a decision to trust Christ during this series! That is awesome!! I have received so many emails and Facebook messages about people hearing God’s Voice for the first time in their lives, and many others hearing God’s Voice again!! We’ve learned these truths about God’s Voice:

  • God wants to speak to you.
  • How to position ourselves to hear God speak.
  • How to test what we hear to know if it is God’s Voice.
  • When God Speaks, how will I respond?

This week, we shift focus in the Voice series from hearing God individually to hearing God’s Voice for our Church Family! Every attender this weekend will receive our Brand New JUST ONE Magazine filled with all God is doing and we believe wants to do in our church. So, if you want to see how God is impacting lives everywhere, come this weekend and see!! It’s going to be so much fun as we celebrate God’s Hand of Favor on our church family!!

Can’t wait for you to hear all that God is going to do!!

Weekend Update

Hey Highlands Family,

We are right in the middle of a series called: THE VOICE! It’s all about learning how to hear the Voice of God. So many of you have emailed me and sent me Facebook messages that for the first time in your life, you are learning to hear God’s Voice!! Wow!! Highlands has a 3-fold approach to help you identify God’s Voice during this series:

1. My weekend messages
2. A “Voice” Small Group Study
3. A free Highlands Journal for you to journal for 30 days

I believe hearing the Voice of God is the single most important thing to learn in your life. The Bible says that God has created us and He has a plan and purpose for our lives.  The only way to discover God’s purpose and hear His plan for you is to be able to know when God is speaking to you. So many voices are speaking into our lives today. Do you know how to distinguish God’s Voice from all the rest?

This weekend I’ll be sharing how to do that!  I hope you will come to a Highlands Campus near you. Check out our website for times and locations, and don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour Saturday night!! Yay!!! An extra hour of sleep for the weekend!!

I love our church!!  You are an amazing group of people!! Thank you so much for your passion to see God change our communities and literally change our world!! May Highlands always be the church that says, “Here we are God, send us!!” “Here we are God, use us!”

The Bible says that God roams the horizon looking for people who are willing to put Him first and obey his call!! Highlands – That is you!!!

Invite your Just One and I can’t wait to see you this weekend!!


Volunteer Opportunities

Hey Highlands!

I wanted to take just a second of your time to let you know about some opportunities we have to be more like Jesus. Jesus came to earth to serve, not to be served.  We have multiple serving opportunities starting this Saturday and running all the way through the following week.

For details and how to get involved please see below. Thank you church for being the hands and feet of Jesus!

In Christ,

Bluefield Launch, BYOB Series and The Listening Company

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!
