We have been sent to spread the light of Jesus Christ to people around the world.  

Come and serve with us!

  • Operation Christmas Child

    The Samaritan's Purse program, Operation Christmas Child, is being used by God to reach children and families around the globe with the Gospel of Christ.  We pack shoebox gifts to share with children who may not otherwise receive any gifts.  Those children also learn of God's Son, Jesus, who loves them.


    For over 15 years, Southern Heights has been visiting the Pine Ridge Indian reservation in South Dakota seeking to promote the power of the gospel message of Christ into the hearts of the tribe of Lakota Indians. We have ministered to places such as Wounded Knee, Manderson, and Pine Ridge. A team of volunteers hosts a Vacation Bible School for the children as well as men's and women's Bible studies. We have also done many construction projects in those areas all in the name of Christ to hopefully and prayerfully reach the lost for Jesus. We were not able to be there in 2020 due to the high volume of COVID-19 cases in that area. We hope we will be able to continue our ministry efforts in the future.

  • Disaster relief

    So many people around our country are hurting because of natural disasters.  Several of our folks have been trained in disaster recovery through the Southern Baptist Convention.  They have traveled to eight states to aid in flood, fire, hurricane, and tornado clean up.  Activities include chaplaincy, day care, laundry, showers, meals, mud and ash out, chain sawing, and rebuild.  Not only are physical needs met, but the team is able to share Jesus with those who are hurting.
