REGIONS

Africa
HCC supported ministries in Africa are varied and extend from the north to the very south of the continent. They include linguistic research of an unreached people group in preparation for Bible translation in their language, equipping nationals for discipleship and church planting in 24 eastern and southern African countries, raising up a Bible-based church among a people group having limited previous evangelical exposure, and bringing junior and high school students the Gospel to save them for Christ and from the HIV/AIDS pandemic in their country.
For more information on the Africa Region, please contact John & Marlene Petit.

Asia
The Asia region contains 55% of the world population and over 4800 unreached people groups.  Within the Asia region, Highlands supports missionaries who are church planters or are training church planters or leaders in their churches.  Over 2000 new churches have been planted in Asia and hundreds have graduated from training programs in recent years.  We are partnering with missionaries in India, the Philippines, Cambodia, and Thailand and short term partners in several other countries.
For more information on the Asia region, please contact Jeff Purcell.

Eurasia
The Eurasia region consists of twelve countries that were a part of the former Soviet Union (Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, and Tajikistan.) Only 2% of the population in this region are Evangelical Christians.
Our regional objectives are to establish partnerships with national pastors and missionaries in different parts of the region, pray for them, support them financially, develop ministry projects, and send short-term teams to help accomplish projects.
For more information on the Eurasia Region, please contact Mike Ryan.

Europe
Europe’s great spiritual heritage has blessed the world but in recent years a deadening secular humanism has been the dominating force and its philosophy has corrupted every part of Europe’s culture. Barely 10% of the population regularly attends church. With the dramatic fall of the Iron Curtain, the ground became more fertile in the former Soviet Union countries. Because the window of opportunity may be short, we feel the urgency to use our time wisely in these areas. We are currently supporting ministries in France.

Latin America

Middle East
You can help the Middle East by praying for open doors and open hearts of the Middle East people. Pray for the persecuted Christians in the Middle East. Especially pray for the HCC missionaries. Pray for their strength, perseverance, and refreshment. Pray that God will lead the people they come in contact with to reconciliation with Himself. Pray for fellowship with other believers and that God would give them close friendships.

North America
The North America regional ministry has served as a major base of missions operation for Highlands’ International Ministries. Our missionaries minister on college campuses and serve in technical and administrative leadership and support in the sending offices of various missionary organizations. Highlands has been involved with local church planting partnerships and disaster relief projects.
For more information on the North America Region, please contact Ernie Antin.

Pacific Region
The Pacific region consists of 25,000 islands scattered over 33 million square miles of ocean. Highlands partners with Australian Indigenous Ministries (AIM), Pacific Missionary Aviation (PMA), Wycliffe Bible Translators, and Campus Crusade for Christ International (CRU). We are presently working with missionaries in Australia, Micronesia and Papua New Guinea.
