Collaborative & Innovative



The Highway & Hedge Ministry was established in 1996 by our Founder and Pastor Lillian Pickens-Stancill.  This ministry is built on the Word of God as commanded in scripture, “And the Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges and compel them to come in that my house may be filled” (Luke 14:23 KJV).  Highway and Hedge ministry extends its services to the needs of humanity collectively and around the world in the works of mercy and the spread of the Gospel.  



Balm & Gilead Ministries is a healing ministry. Our goal is to provide and instill a practical and applicable guide; to resolve the overarching factors of trauma, crisis and hurt to bridge the gap, meeting the needs of people from all levels of life. In doing so we are walking along beside them coaching and mentoring them toward a healthy spiritual Christian formation, while engaging individuals in programs for discipleship. We often attempt to use our own medicines to heal ourselves but God is inviting us to use and apply His medicine, “The Balm in Gilead.”Scripture states, “Go up into Gilead, and take balm, O virgin the daughter of Egypt: in vain shalt thou use many medicines for thou shalt not be cured” (Jeremiah 46:11 KJV).
