How to Get Involved

Pray… for the nations!

Pray that God would bless the ministry of these teams, opening the hearts of those who receive the message of the gospel. Without the Lord’s blessing on these trips, they will not have true spiritual success.

Go… to the nations!

The countries to which we send teams are not chosen at random. The trips sent by Highland Park are initiated by our missions leadership team. Highland Park teams have a long-term impact because they are linked with missionaries around the world. By God’s grace, the combination of an energetic group of servants from our church makes an effective witness for Christ around the world!

Give… to the efforts!

Our missionaries serve on a basis of faith, and the majority of our personnel depend on the Lord for the provision of their daily life and ministry. Our church and individuals from Highland Park partner together with each Missionary to provide their necessary prayer support, salary, and work expenses. You can become a vital part of initiation church-planting movements by becoming a faithful supporter of a Highland Park missionary or a short term mission trip.
