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.

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.
