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



Highlands Students creates opportunities for students to discover who they are in Jesus. We accomplish this by inviting students to be a part of our Sunday service experience, so that they grow a love for the local church. Allowing them to be a part of our Sunday experience at a young age enables them to learn alongside their parents and grow in maturity in their faith. Additionally, we offer several opportunities for students to grow in their relationship with God and each other throughout the week. We believe that by creating unique environments in the local church, students are excited to hear the word of God, be challenged by its truth & encouraged by leaders as well as their peers in their walk with Christ!


MOTION Night is a worship experience for students designed specifically to fuel your next step in Christ. Students from every Highlands campus gather together the second Wednesday of each month at Grants Mill, Auburn, Tuscaloosa, Huntsville, Montgomery or Riverchase!

Small Groups

Small groups are designed for students to grow in relationship with God and each other. There are several groups to choose from based on age, location, interest, and time of the week.
