Our Local Vision:
We have the wonderful privilege to minister in the North Georgian towns of Blue Ridge (primarily), Blairsville, McCaysville, and Ellijay. With members of our church family living in all of these towns, the reach of the ministry spreads to the local area as God works through His people. Highland is actively involved in the community with evangelism and discipleship as well as practical aids such as providing clothes, food, money (at times), and general help to our neighbors. There are also times of community involvement with community events, community church gatherings, and moral cause rallies such as the “March Against Meth” and the National Prayer Chain for abortion victims. The ministry is looking, in the days ahead, to be more involved with the local, religious, para-church organizations as well, so that in any way possible, God might use us as a blessing and a light to our community.
Our World Vision:
God has not only called us to minister to the local community, but He is also using HBT to reach the world through the support of world-wide missions. Presently the congregation gives monthly support to nine missionaries throughout the world in Nepal, Peru, Madagascar, The Philippines, The Dominican Republic, Nigeria, France, and in the United States. We also seek to support these missionaries through our prayers and correspondence. Operation Christmas Child is a fun missions endeavor for the church every year, and past days such as World Vision Sunday and our Missions Conferences have been highlights in the life of the church family.
