Grow Conferences, including the annual Grow Conference in Birmingham, Alabama, and International Conferences, feature leadership training from Church of the Highlands’ founding pastor, Chris Hodges, and the Church of the Highlands team.

Grow Conference

July 28–30, 2020
Birmingham, AL

The Highlands team is waiting to make a final call on Grow Conference until closer to the event in hopes that we will be able to have an in-person experience as previously planned. With that being said, you will receive a conference update by the end of June at the latest with all the information you need for this year’s experience. However, please know that our team is working on alternate options for Conference if an in-person experience isn’t a possibility. Either way, we are forming a plan to get this year’s Conference content to you!

If you have any concerns due to travel or lodging reservations/expenses, please reach out to our team at, and we’ll be happy to help!

International Conferences

We bring the content of the Grow Conference to international host churches outside of the United States to allow pastors and their teams to learn about the proven systems and structures that will help them thrive. Attendees learn from members of the Highlands staff in the areas of Weekend Services, Small Groups, Growth Track, Dream Team, and more.
