A note from our campus pastor

With more people moving to the Highland Lakes area every year, it is becoming an increasingly thriving area where the Ridge wants to have an impact! Starting June 30, we will be launching our Highland Lakes Campus in the Marble Falls Middle School.

NEXT at the Ridge

Plans for launching a campus in the Highland Lakes area

NEXT is our capital campaign to support the expansion of our campuses to provide environments for people to know, grow, and serve Jesus, both for those who currently attend the Ridge and for those who have yet to come to our church.


We are working to launch our fourth campus on June 30 to serve the Highland Lakes area. There are over 10,000 new home construction permits in the area, with many people driving over 45 minutes to our campuses each week.
