Volunteer

Essential to Highland’s understanding of the Christian life is putting action to belief. Our mission statement calls us “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.”

This summons to generosity and passion for justice finds its way in the many needs in our community and around the world. Highland’s members work tirelessly to be agents of peace and reconciliation through serving. On any given day, you could find our folks sharing meals at the Salvation Army, playing games and building community with kids in Louisville’s inner city, teaching English to refugee women, or traveling in the name of love to third-world countries for medical relief or musical leadership.

And so… we invite you to find your place. Listen deeply for your calling. Activate your calling to the work of Love in our world. Come and serve!

We invite you to fill out this short contact form so we can reach out to you for future volunteer opportunities: Volunteer Contact Form.
