Ben Stroup | Lead Pastor
Ben loves God, his family, the church, and pizza. He has been the Lead Pastor of Highland since November 2011 and has a passion for teaching the Bible and seeing people draw nearer to Jesus. He spends free time with his family and you can usually find him watching or playing sports and or going on any kind of fun adventures he can go on with Whitney, Abel and Cohen.
Justin Butler| Associate Pastor
Justin loves Jesus, Preaching, his fiancé Sarah, reading and writing and hanging out with his family. He is a huge baseball fan, being loyal to the Chicago Cubs. He is a graduate of Kentucky Christian University, and is currently in the process of getting his Master’s from the same institution. When he is not at Highland, Justin enjoys spending time with his fiancé (who he will be marrying on October 14th, 2017), reading and writing, and playing guitar. His favorite Bible verse is 2 Timothy 4:2 which states, “Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.”.
