International Advocacy

Helping Others


The International Advocacy team seeks to develop a sustainable, collaborative community partnership between Highlands Church and an international setting. Our vision is:

To come alongside a community for a minimum of 3-5 years, investing in projects that are owned by the local community and shared with Highlands Church.

To integrate love and service so that Highlands church and our international partner can work together in a whole person approach to meeting needs together.

To use the knowledge, experience, and education gained from our international partnership to teach and broaden perspectives enabling Highlands Church to become a more global thinking community.

A commitment to doing justice, loving kindness, and walking humbly with God drives our vision and the scope of what we hope to accomplish.  We are also committed as a church to imitate the ridiculous love of almighty God in whom we are grounded. The purpose of our work is not the conversion of people.  Rather, we represent the person, work, and teaching of Jesus Christ in all we do and say and how we live justice, kindness, and humility in our world.

Our primary partnership is currently in countries in East Africa.
