See why students love Highlands College

I graduated from Highlands College, and I love coming back to anything at Highlands, especially Grow, not only because we get to learn so much, but we always get – like Pastor Chris said yesterday – just a breath of fresh air. Getting to be in this culture and seeing what’s going on here is so encouraging. And we are excited to bring what we’ve learned back to our church and our city. I personally love seeing the way people serve so well and the way they are really invested in the vision. It gets me pumped up to go back and instill that in my home church. One thing that I’m especially going to be thinking about as I go back home to my student ministry is how PC said, ‘We have way too much information and not enough transformation.’ That’s going to help me remember that I’m not just preaching to and teaching students, but I want to see their lives transformed. I want to see them walking out God’s calling on their lives. I want to see lives changed.
