Career Services & Placement Opportunities

We believe that it is important to plan with the end in mind. When you come to Highlands College, you have access to professional development resources and connections that can help you launch your career right after graduation. Our Office of Ministry Placement partners with each student to achieve professional goals each year, hosts connection events, and even provides resources to you well after you graduate and have secured a role. Their intentional relationships with over 15,000 ministries and churches around the world give you numerous options to choose from to launch into your career.


Student Journey to Success

To help students develop into the best candidate for a variety of traditional and non-traditional ministry career opportunities, we work to help each individual student prepare for their career path.

Highlands College partners in placement with a network of over 13,000 churches through two organizations: the Association of Related Churches (ARC), which works with church planters and church leaders to provide support, guidance, and resources to launch and grow life-giving churches; and GrowLeader, which helps existing churches grow so they can reach their cities for Jesus.
