A Life of Eternal Impact

Highlands College

Grow exists to help churches break growth barriers that leaders encounter on their journey to reach more people. Churches can and should only grow at the pace of their leaders’ growth. That need is what birthed the vision of Highlands College. Founded in 2011, Highlands College is designed to fulfill Jesus’s charge in Luke 10:2:


“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”


To put it simply, Highlands College was built for you - where leaders are holistically developed with the spiritual depth and hands-on training they need to be able to plug into your team and make an impact from day one. 

Ways to Partner

1. Hire HC graduates.

If you’ve been searching for someone with the experience needed to fill a vital role on your team, our dedicated Ministry Placement team would love to help you make connections with the students we’re training.

2. Send us your students.

Because of your leadership, you have students in your church that have a world-changing call of God on their lives. We’d love to partner with you to develop that potential inside them over two years, then send them out to make an eternal impact - possibly even on your team.

3. Scholarship a student.

The vision of Highlands College is to launch ministry leaders - debt-free - into the harvest field. If you would like to invest in that future, we have three tangible ways you can do that. Through your missions giving, you can contribute to a general scholarship fund - called the Maxwell Fund. You can also fund an annual scholarship for a student, or you can endow a seat which will provide a named tuition scholarship to one student annually, in perpetuity. The endowed seat may be named for your church and awarded to a student from your church.

Ministry Conversation Guide

Help your student leaders decide if pursuing full-time ministry is the right decision.

We believe that everyone has a ministry purpose, and some choose to pursue ministry vocationally. While some students may be confident that they want to give their lives to ministry, others may need more guidance to help them explore this career path. The HC Admissions Team has put together a guide to help church leaders facilitate productive conversations with students who are deciding if vocational ministry is right for them.
