The Highlands Institute equips believers to become leaders in their communities for sake of the gospel.


The Highlands Institute 














Campus Updates






Diversity is an acknowledgment that American culture is of two genders and multiple origins, languages, races, colors, religions and cultures. Marginalization of female and minority voices has a long history in our nation, and ameliorating such marginalization is a primary task of education and Christian education in particular.


Part of the Church’s mission is to proclaim the gospel to peoples of the earth. The Highlands Institute acknowledges the importance of a biblical theology of “every tribe and language and people and nation” (Revelation 5:9). This means reaching people-groups within our immediate culture and the varied cultures of the world. Crossing ethnic, gender, economic, social, and racial boundaries to accomplish quality theological education is an intentional act of the Highlands Institute.


To this end, the Highlands Institute actively subscribes to a policy of equal education and employment opportunity for all people regardless of race, national origin, sex, age, marital status, or disability. This policy is informed by Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Our subscription to this policy in no way compromises our freedom to engage in our educational mission in accordance with the religious and ecclesiastical purposes of this institution. We clearly desire to serve Christ-honoring students of all backgrounds in an ever-expanding and diverse student body, one whose diversity enriches us theologically, spiritually, and pastorally.

Denominational Distinctives and Theological Diversity

We are an inter/multi-denominational training institute serving primarily, though not exclusively, the evangelical community. This means that students from many backgrounds and faith groups are on campus for personal ministry preparation. Diversity of denominations/faith groups means diversity of opinions on theological and doctrinal matters. It is one of the strengths of an inter/multi-denominational institution that we can debate, respect, and even enjoy theological diversity that can exist under the authority of the inspired Scriptures.

Non-Discrimination Policy

Within the context of its theological convictions and mission, the Highlands Institute does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, disability, or age in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships, and other institute-administered programs.
