Taking the Good News of Jesus to Franklin County, Virginia, our nation, and the world.

If you’ve been around Franklin Heights Church for any length of time, you already know that missions is an integral part of who we are. That’s because our church was begun as a mission effort. We’re committed to an Acts 1:8 strategy—we believe that God has called and purposed us to reach our communities, our county, our nation, and our world, and we won’t settle for anything less!

With many local opportunities offered to serve and engage our church and community, as well as national and international efforts that impact and affect our world, we encourage you to step out in faith and be on mission with God!
