About High Places
"Where there is no vision the people perish."
High Places Community Church was officially formed in March 1990 with a vision for ministries that were fundamentally "principle-centered" and free. Purposefully low key, the church has slowly grown in a steady and deliberate way.
High Places people come from many places and backgrounds. As a non-denominational church we are not directly affiliated with any particular denomination, though we are free and open to associate with any and all who wish to do so.
After beginning in a home setting the church has since met in a variety of places, including the Oak Ridge Civic Center, British Woods' clubhouse, the YWCA, and a former shopping center on Ogden Lane. In 2004 The Old Grove Theater was purchased by the church for the purpose of meeting both church and community space needs.
With a history that is rooted in community-oriented youth ministry, we are highly committed to both youth and children's ministries and we invest heavily in both. Our adult ministries are formed around a commitment to encourage healthy adults and families. We are also blessed to have those who in their golden years are young at heart and bring much wisdom and balance to the church.
