The Highlands Fellows

The Highlands Fellows are like-minded pastors from around the country who work with the ministry by writing for our magazine, Every Thought Captive, sharing their writing on the website, offering advice, spreading word about our ministry work and sharing with our people stories of God’s faithfulness from their own lives and the lives of their flocks. We are pleased to call them our brothers and friends.

Rev. Mark Robinette: Mark is an elder on the session at Foundation Church, as well as it’s founding pastor. God has blessed the Robinettes with seven children and a small farm in central Ohio. God birthed their church as they worked among the poor in inner-city Columbus. They have had the privilege of pouring their lives into their converts and teaching them the wonderful ways of God. Mark is also an award-winning investigative journalist who has written for several magazines and spoken at home education conferences.


Jeff Swanson

Rev. Jeff Swanson: Pastor of Christ the King Church, New Era, MI.  He is the husband of one wife, Kelle, and father to seven children.  A farmer in his heart, he spends much of his working life around cows and “sheep.”  Jeff and family benefit from his work at a dairy which specializes in cheese and ice cream. If he wasn’t so “freakishly” tall, Jeff could be considered  “Hobbit-ish”, loving all things that grow.  Jeff loves to plow the lives of his family and  his  congregation as they seek to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.  Not only does Jeff consider himself a fisher of men, but also a fisher of fishes.  A life of peace, communing with family and friends, finds Jeff often enjoying good fellowship, good cheese, good beer, good wine, and good bread together in community.
