College Heights is blessed with many members who have adopted leadership roles in a variety of church ministries. These members attend meetings each month, where progress toward community outreach, improvement of church services, and event coordination is made.
We are always open to new ideas and perspectives, and we encourage all of our members and regular attendees to get involved with church leadership. If you would like to serve College Heights in a committee, please let us know.
