Has your church hit a growth barrier?

At Church of the Highlands, we believe that the local church is the hope of the world. Grow began in 2010 with the goal of helping 1,000 churches under 1,000 in weekly attendance break that barrier. Our vision is to help your church experience phenomenal growth.
