Highland is a very active church in supporting the missions of God’s work throughout the world. Throughout the year teams of men and women respond to emergency cleanup, rebuilding requests, and a returning to damaged neighborhoods to continue rehabilitation.

Every July upwards to 100 Highland men, women, youth and children transform lives in Mars Hill, North Carolina while adults and teens alike travel to international work sites in Central and South America. Just last year, our mission team had a successful journey to El Salvador and enhancing our partnership with the Reformed Calvinist Church of El Salvador. There they worked side-by-side with the church and community in El Limon to help the people build rooms in the church dedicated to small business development. The team saw first hand the work of Highland-supported missionary, Kristi van Nostram who is a facilitator for the Joining Hands program in El Salvador, an initiative of the Presbyterian Hunger Program.
