Highland is happy to house the offices of and support the ministry of Friends of Nazareth (FON). FON is a 501(c)3 stateside partner of the Nazareth Baptist School, a NEMA Corporation, in Nazareth, Israel...the hometown of Jesus! FON's purpose is summed up in this statement, "Building the rising generations, Glorifying Jesus Christ through distinctive Christian Education".
Many Highland members and staff have visited and ministered at the Nazareth Baptist School-including our pastor!
Highland member, Dr Roger D. Mardis, is the President of FON and he would love to meet with you and to discuss what God is doing around the world and especially in His hometown.
Drop by the FON office located inside the Highland building or email Roger to learn more (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Nazareth Baptist School, established in the 1930s by the Foreign Mission Board (now International Mission Board) of the Southern Baptist Convention, has become one of the largest evangelical gospel witnesses in the Middle East. The school serves more than 1,000 students in the heart of Jesus’ childhood hometown. Because of its academic reputation, Christian, Muslim, and non-religious families send their children to the school.
