exteriorMore About Us

Our ministry is designed to take life and relationships to higher and God ordained heights as well as repairing and healing severe woundedness and brokenness, through Christian counseling, restoration and spiritual redirection. We offer time tested spiritual healing through principles adapted from such well respected ministries as Elijah House, Pure Desire, AACC, etc., along with HHP developed concepts that lead to real and permanent healing and inner peace. Sexual immorality, anxiety, depression, burn out and infidelity are just some of the many areas for which we have seen healing. Our Christian counseling, restoration and spiritual redirection services have a broad range of techniques that make us uniquely qualified to minister to those looking for spiritual truth as well as those who are at a serious impasse and need the miraculous healing that is required for reconciliation and repairing of relationships. We have over thirty years of successful Christian counseling, restoration and spiritual redirection experience and have participated in repairing the breach for over 2,000 clients. The majority of those who have come to His High Places are living in victory and still walking out the breakthrough they experienced here.view

Set in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, His High Places (HHP) was organized in July of 1980 by Sam and Anita McMillan. His High Places is a non-profit Christian ministry. Our approach is Christ and Scripture-centered. The principles apply interdenominationally. The McMillans are both licensed professional counselors and charter members of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC). We have a team of highly trained and gifted team members.

We provide Christ-centered spiritual direction to individuals and couples, and we specialize in pastoral care. A typical stay includes 5 nights and 6 days with twice-daily sessions for diagnostic listening, teaching, worship, and deep prayer to address root issues. There are also assignments in specific books, audio and video tapes, guided recreation, good food, unstructured “reflection time” and lots of prayer. Out of this balanced approach the Holy Spirit is free to minister what is needed and direct us in a “game plan” for a changed life back home.

What People Say

Having the opportunity to be at HHP was one of the greatest blessings in my entire life. Issues that I never realized were affecting my life were dealt with. My life was changed forever more.
30 years ago God gave me the gift of salvation. I have walked around with that unopened gift in my back pocket. This week I was finally able to open that gift and receive the fullness of HIS love. My life has completely changed.
Pastor’s wife
God is moving extraordinarily at HHP. Ignore that twinge of doubt in your mind and call, come. You can experience freedom from that pain, fear and anger that has trapped you. Let the coaches at HHP lead you into embracing the fullness of life God designed and desires for His children.
