Our vision is to grow leaders who grow churches by helping them reach their full potential.
How We Started
When Pastor Chris Hodges heard a commission from the Lord in 2011 to help 1,000 churches break the 1,000 attendance barrier, he founded Grow with the mission to help equip church leaders.
Grow quickly multiplied year over year, and it became evident that church leaders are hungry to be trained and equipped in a very practical, hands-on way. In January 2021 we launched GrowLeader in order to better support pastors and leaders in their desire to personally grow in leadership so their churches can reach more people and make a greater impact.
Grow, now called Highlands Resources, continues to provide resources to over 16,500 churches globally at no cost.
GrowLeader offers several other resources to equip leaders to reach their full potential.
At GrowLeader Conference, you will be able to learn the heart behind all GrowLeader has to offer and how to practically implement that into your church—all while experiencing an encouraging and life-giving culture with other pastors and leaders from around the world.
Monthly Mentoring with
The Monthly Mentoring experience is designed specifically for senior and executive pastors to join a group of churches from around the world during a live, 1-hour conference call each month where they can ask Pastor Chris about pressing topics in real-time.
The GrowLeader podcast brings you thought-provoking inspiration along with practical insights and tips that will help you grow as the leader you are called to be.
KB Virtual Intensive
The Kingdom Builders Virtual Intensive is an accessible training designed to equip pastors and leadership teams to launch a healthy Kingdom Builders or Legacy Team. You bring the commitment and passion, we bring the curriculum and resources. All at your own pace.
