Detailed Chris Hodges Biography
Since it began in 2001, Church of the Highlands has grown to average more than 38,000 people attending each weekend and is known for its life-giving culture and focus on leading people to an intimate relationship with God.
Chris has a deep passion for developing leaders and planting life-giving churches. He co-founded ARC (Association of Related Churches) in 2001, which has launched hundreds of churches all across the USA. He also founded GROW, a one-of-a-kind experience specializing in training and resourcing pastors and churches to help them break barriers and reach their growth potential. Chris is also the founder and President of the Highlands College, a ministry training school that trains and launches students into full-time ministry careers.
He was born on June 21, 1964, and entered the ministry in 1984 as a youth pastor at Bethany World Prayer Center outside Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Hodges married the former Tammy Hornsby in 1986. A year later the couple moved to Colorado Springs where Chris served as a youth pastor and senior associate pastor for the New Life Church. He returned to the Bethany World Prayer Center in 1994 as an associate pastor. While there he hosted a daily television program called “Lifeline”.
Hodges relocated to Birmingham in 2000 with the express purpose of founding a new church. He organized the Association of Related Churches, a non-profit involved in church development and began recruiting leaders for the new Church of the Highlands. The first service was held in February 2001 at Mountain Brook High School’s auditorium. The church became one of the fastest-growing congregations in the country and constructed its own campus in 2007.

Four Cups Chris Hodges
The God of the universe has made you some big promises. He made them first in the Old Testament, and they remain at the core of his heart and have never changed.
Four Cups refers to the four cups that Jews drink in the Passover Seder and their meaning both for the ancient Israelites as well as modern Christians today. It is hard to imagine a more appropriate book being written for the Passover season by a mainstream Christian who comes so close to recognizing the continuing validity of the Sabbath and biblical Holy Days existing, but this book is superb in that it takes the Bible seriously and avoids the contradiction between law and grace that marks so much of evangelical discourse.
The book is primarily focused on God’s gracious deliverance and freedom, but it recognizes (quite accurately) that having been delivered from slavery to sin that God’s Spirit within us that enables us and encourages us in behaving righteously. Aside from some minor quibbles about the author’s tripartite division of mankind as an analogue to a nonexistent Trinity and his calling Passover a cultural tradition as opposed to a divine appointment, there is very little to criticize in this book.
Chris Hodges Sermons
If you live In Alabama, then I’m sure you’ve heard of Church of the Highlands. If you’re new to Alabama, then you should totally visit! The greatest thing about this church is not how they have fifteen locations across the state (and working on their 16th!) or how they only have a mid week worship service on the first Wednesday of every month, but it’s how alive the presence of God is felt throughout every building, as well the relevant and understanding message Pastor Chris Hodges preaches week after week. I just started going in the Shoals campus, which just opened in February. And to be honest, it doesn’t feel like we’re going to church in a hotel conference center! Along with these ten facts, I encourage you to visit Church of the Highlands this weekend at whichever location is convenient for you.
