Highlands Students | Church of the Highlands | Birmingham, Alabama | Pastor Chris Hodges



At Highlands, we believe that young people can “set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12 NIV). It is our goal to see students reach their full potential in Christ by discovering their purpose and utilizing their gifts to serve others. Through Highlands Students leadership, you can expect to be challenged in your own life while helping others along the way. Ready to take your growth to the next level?

Dream Team

Students will never be more fulfilled than when they are serving in their passion, gifting, and purpose every day. The Dream Team is a vehicle full of opportunities for students to identify their strengths and use them to live out their faith in motion through vibrant service here, in the local church.


2:52 is a part time internship for HIGH SCHOOL and COLLEGE STUDENTS designed to help them grow in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man (Luke 2:52). It is built to provide students with hands-on ministry training and practical leadership development to help them fulfill the call of God on their lives.
