About High Point Church

High Point Church is a congregationally governed, elder led, independent evangelical protestant church in the Baptist tradition that leans toward reformed theology and emphasizes Gospel-centeredness. We strive to be seeker intelligible, but focus on spiritual growth and utilize expositional preaching about 85% of the time. HPC has a strong global missions ministry focusing on university missions and unreached peoples in 'inaccessible' nations. About 10% of the people who attend worship services each Sunday are people of color (Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American) and we are actively working on becoming even more multicultural.  It is a down to earth but exciting place to be with all generations healthily represented.

About Madison, Wisconsin

We recommend that interested candidates do research on the city of Madison before applying. Madison is a very specific kind of town. A state capital and university center, it is politically volatile and deeply secular yet has a strong Christian minority; highly educated, fiercely proud and highly unionized yet embraces its rural farming, state-wide identity. It is quintessentially Midwestern in culture. It is liberal, but in a very different way than in other parts of the country. About 20% of the city’s population are people of color. Be willing to love this city, not just this High Point Church.
