Troy Enters the Flock

With Troy’s entry in August, our city joins a string of recent Highlands’ church openings, including new locations in Huntsville, Fultondale, Auburn, and Gadsden. As of now, the Church of the Highlands’ reach stretches from North Alabama to Western Georgia.

A Growing Mission

With home base in Irondale, Church of the Highlands streams Sunday sermons to 21 branches. Out of those 21, 10 reside in permanent, brick-and-mortar sites purchased by the church. All land acquired by the Highlands came from church coffers, without the help of loans.
