Who is Nick Highland?  I am a child of the King. I am a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a theology geek, a lover of the outdoors, an avid reader, and a loyal friend. I care very deeply for people, I have a desire to love fully and completely, and I desire Christ-likeness. I am a person, with all the imperfections and flaws that accompany person-hood.

And I am a pastor.

And I am all of those things in more or less that order. Before I am ever a pastor, I am a person. Just like anyone else, along with the joys,  successes, and adventures, my life is complex, messy, and I am flawed.

Before I am a pastor, I am someone who God is perfecting – which is wonderful news to me, because I am aware of just how much I need His sanctifying grace. I am being remade according to His Image. I am in Christ, and Christ is in me.

What’s the deal with the website?
I have to admit – registering “nickhighland.com” doesn’t really feel like “me” to me.  But I have wanted a space where I can document thoughts and growth, explore theological perspectives, and respond to scripture and devotional readings.  I post occasionally and share rarely.  This space is for me.

So if you’ve come across this site, what you’re seeing isn’t an effort at self-promotion or internet glory.  This website is for me more than it is for you.  (But don’t worry – you’re welcome here too.  Help yourself to anything you might find in the refrigerator).
