Ministerial Staff

Highland’s ministerial staff serves the needs of the congregation and the community at large. In the various aspects of church life where they lead, our ministers are deeply committed to the gospel ministry and to guiding Highland daily into its mission “to be so changed by God’s transforming love revealed in Jesus Christ that we are an intriguing, inviting, and inclusive community of faith, filled with generous hearts and passion for God’s justice.”
