HPCC Missions

Missions are at the heart of Highland Park Community Church. Believing that the good news of Jesus Christ is meant to be shared across the world, HPCC contributes over $500,000 annually to 11 local and global partners that provide encouragement and a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Opportunities to Serve

Highland Park Community Church exists to Take Risks To Pursue God & Love Like Jesus. We believe that life is better lived in service to others. Part of our mission is “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ” (Eph. 4:12, ESV). Each and every person at Highland Park Community Church has the opportunity to be part of the “Go Strategy”.

There is a place for YOU – no matter what your interests, talents, or availability. Take a look at some of the areas available and choose what excites your passion to be a part of.
