Missions
Making disciples of Jesus is what we strive to do at Highland. We have opportunities to do this in New Iberia, and around the world! Be on the lookout for mission opportunities or trips that are coming up!
 

A.B.R.O. Ministry Team (American Belarusian Relief Organization)

Each summer families from Highland sponsor children from Belarus in their homes for six weeks.  During these six weeks, they receive medical and dental care, nourishment, an escape from a radioactive living environment, and a chance for our families to live out the love of Christ in their lives.  If you are interested in possibly hosting a child or in helping during their stay, please contact us at the church office and we can put you in touch with our A.B.R.O. Ministry Team.
 

Alaska Missions

In the Fall of 2013 two Highland members, Scott and Dana Belmore, along with their children Andrew and Ruthie, followed God’s call to move to Alaska and work for Alaska Missions in cooperation with the North American Mission Board. Follow their journey here. Our church will be going on a mission trip in Alaska in February of 2019. Please contact David Jeffreys if you are interested in attending.
 

Honduras 2019

In Honduras we partnered with Iglesia Dios es Amor (God is Love Church) to serve local ministries in and around the city of San Pedro Sula. We put on a Vacation Bible School with Proyecto Brazos de Jesus which is a ministry that provides education, food, and medical care to children who live in and around the city dump. We also spoke in several schools and met with students and teachers to encourage them and share the Gospel of Jesus. All this while staying at a local medical clinic where we were able to share with the patients and pray with them. We were partners in ministry with those who live there and would love to go back and do it again! Email us here if you would like to partner with us next year!
