Highland Park Church is dedicated to being active in the community through special partnerships with local ministries in Lakeland and surrounding areas. These partnerships include KidsPack, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Dream Center, and supporting Foster Care Families.  


KidsPack USA  is a nonprofit organization supported by community leaders, corporate sponsors, churches and concerned citizens joined with a core of volunteers throughout the county dedicated to improving the lives and opportunities of children. KidsPACK's purpose is to energize local communities to impact the lives of children sparking a positive change and giving the opportunity:

To spend each day free of hunger

To encourage learning and enhance abilities
To be clothed with dignity
To have shelter and security
To experience the kind and compassionate heart of a giver

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is touching millions of lives – one heart at a time. Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ.


Dream Center of Lakeland exists to restore families & empower community by meeting needs in order to introduce people to long-term relationships with Jesus. Founded in 2003, the Dream Center of Lakeland has always aimed to serve the community by meeting real needs and offering resources for positive change. Through community service, mentoring programs, community classes and more, the Dream Center hopes to offer Christ's genuine love to those we encounter.


Highland Park’s GO Trips are a chance for our people to experience missions first-hand.  If you feel God leading you to do more than pray or give financially by personally spending time in state-side or overseas missions, we encourage you to contact us.



The Highland Park School in Rwanda is one of the top ranking schools in the country. Since Highland Park Church built this school, we have been going back one to two times per year to complete service projects around the school, minister to the kids, and serve in the surrounding community.
