Each year, Heights Church hosts multiple Serve Days and RVA Week. This is when our church family commits to serving our city and partner with local organizations and nonprofits to meet physical needs in our community and city. We believe that simple acts of service can open hearts to the love of Jesus and the spiritual needs in their life!
RVA Week is in partnership with churches all across the nation for Serve Day. To find out more about Serve Day and other churches involved, check out serveday.com.
Nationally, we partner with ARC, Association of Related Churches, whose mission is to help new and existing churches thrive by providing leaders with relationship, resource and opportunity. In 2019 alone we helped plant 65 new churches which brings the total to 874 churches planted through ARC!
ORGANIZATIONS WE PARTNER WITH
We believe in the next generation so much, that we partner with Highlands College which is a biblical higher education institution.
We partner with Trafficking Hope, whose mission is to eradicate sex trafficking across the nation while helping empower local churches and organizations.
Our goal is to fulfill the Great Commission through global evangelism, church planting, and child sponsorship in the darkest regions of the earth, in Jesus’ name. We are passionate about helping the least, last and lost.
One Child is a child sponsorship organization that pairs a sponsor with a child to help provide everyday essentials such as food, clean water, housing, and medical attention. While many organizations have a similar mission, One Child significantly separates themselves in how they implement this mission. In every location that One Child operates, they partner with a local church. They place Child Champions alongside the pastors and church leaders to help train and equip them to grow their local community. They do this by teaching structure, organization, budgeting, and leadership to the church leaders and helping them expand their vision and care for their community. As a result, the church transforms from barely surviving to thriving.
By sponsoring hundreds of children through One Child, Heights Church empowers the communities surrounding each of those children. We help provide education, medical care, food, and hope to a child in desperate need. And most importantly, we are doing it all in Jesus’ Name!
Each year we travel to Kenya and every other year to the Philippines to visit the villages our sponsored children live in with one simple mission: spread God’s love to those in need. Everyone who makes the trip raises money, not only to make the trip, but also to help provide additional resources and gifts for our sponsored children and their child champions. Check out this recap video below from our most recent mission trip in partnership with One Child!
