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.

Get Involved

We will meet at 10am all together in the youth room each Sunday for Student Connection until August. We can't wait to see you this summer! 

Students meet together on Sundays for Bible study and prayer. Over the summer season we will have different faces of Highland share from God's Word, and encourage the students to live out Kingdom Culture. We will cover important aspects of following Jesus, from the importance of sound theology to evangelism to personal testimony!

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 its 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.
