Highpoint Review

2017 ANNUAL REVIEW

Highpoint Church exists to prove that love works. This annual report is a visual and numerical representation of our vision to love God, love people, and make disciples.

“Every number has a name, every name has a story, and every story exists for the glory of God. Every number represent someone’s spouse, siblings, children, parents, and friends. This is why we care about numbers.

“The staff of Highpoint Church is proud of you. It is our honor to equip you, the saints, to do the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12). It is our hope and prayer that as you read through this annual report, you will hear the Lord say, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master’ (Matthew 25:21).

“We’re beyond grateful for all that God has done in the past year, and we look forward to seeing what He has in store for the future. Let’s press on toward revival and spiritual awakening. The best is yet to come!”

Thank you…

for investing in God’s work in and through Highpoint Church. Here’s the bottom line: God can accomplish 100% of His mission with 10% of our income. We’ve made significant progress, but our potential depends upon our willingness to test the Lord with our tithe (Malachi 3:10).

Numbers matter because…

 

Every number has a name

Every name has a story

Every story exists for the glory of God
