Students

About

The goal of Highland Student Ministry is to bring High School and Middle School students together for worship and fellowship, develop as disciples, and take the gospel to the world. We challenge students to own their faith, follow Christ more personally, and embrace the Word of God. Highland as a whole sums up these values in three words: Gather, Grow, Go.

Sondays Camp

We have made the decision to attend camp this summer. This does not mean we expect every student or family to be involved. It is up to each family to decide what is right for them in this current season. Here is what you need to know!

Date: Camp is July 15-July 18!

Camp will cost $159 this year (as opposed to $250 last year). If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please email your student's name, grade, and reason for the scholarship request to Megan Garland. Don't let a silly thing like money be the reason your student doesn't attend camp!

Physical distancing will be practiced for worship, eating, recreation and sleeping arrangements. It will be policed by Camp Lebanon staff as well as Highland volunteers. We will most likely be doing recreational activities with our individual churches rather than all together. The Mt. Lebanon Staff will clean and sanitize the camp under CDC guidelines throughout our time. 

Transportation: Parents will be responsible to transport your student(s) to camp AND back home. This allows us to accomplish the full scope of social distancing at camp from beginning to end.

Volunteer At HSM

There are two primary ways to serve with HSM:

College Volunteers: Waco is blessed to be home to several university and college campuses. College students who love Christ are only a few steps ahead of our students and remember well what it's like to be a teenager. This makes them excellent mentors to our students, examples for them to follow, and a trusted voice that reinforces Biblical and parental teaching.

Adult Volunteers: We utilize adults in various ways as event chaperones, host homes, teachers, drivers, and mentors.

If you would like more information about volunteering with Highland Student Ministry let us know by emailing Jordan McKinney.

Summer Events

We have many events and small group gatherings planned this summer. If you have any questions about particular events or would like to be added to the parent email for the latest news and updates, contact Jordan McKinney.
