HEIGHTS FOUNDATION

Missions & Outreach

Heights Foundation

The focus for outreach at Citizen Heights is to remove limitations that hold our communities and this world back. Whether it’s investing in church plants, partnering in child sponsorship, joining in the fight against human trafficking, or serving the less fortunate in our cities; you have a chance to be part of making a difference around the world through the outreach and missions here. Our Heart for the House offering is an annual, sacrificial offering to the Heights Foundation over and above our tithes and offerings.
