About | Motion Students


We want to see all Middle School and High School students thriving in an authentic relationship with God, and connected to the local church.

As students take continual next steps, they will grow closer to God, have great relationships, and learn how to serve and lead in the church. We believe that students who are connected to a life-giving church and healthy relationships can follow Jesus for a lifetime, and they will use their gifts and passions to make an impact on earth.

We’re the student ministry of Church of the Highlands.

For more information on updates coming to our student ministry, check out this page here!

Our goal is to help take students on a spiritual journey as they follow Christ by helping them Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose, and Make a Difference.
