Pastor Jake Hall was awarded an “Emerging Leader” award from NewTown Macon during the Parters in Progress awards ceremony. This annual event acknowledges people, groups and businesses who are leaders in the community. Our Highland Hills congregation was heralded for being a presence in Macon. The award moment celebrated our work through Tavernsong, Gospel Gothic and the ways our Vision 20/20 process featured the voices of the community in strategic planning. Jake Hall and Marlon Baldwin (pictured) of The Mentor’s Project were awarded this honor that names their work in building community.
