Cliff Gregory

Lead Pastor
E-mail Cliff Gregory

Cliff Gregory’s love of theology began at a very early age and has always dominated his life. At age 16, Cliff was a Licensed Youth Evangelist who traveled in several western states.  At age 18, Cliff married his childhood sweetheart, Linda, and they were blessed with two lovely daughters Sharee and Natalie. Today they also have two fine son-in-laws Michael and Marc along with six grandchildren.  To support his young, growing family, Cliff embarked on another career and served 24 years as an Airline Captain for Pacific Southwest Airlines and U.S. Airways.  He and Linda have spent the last 19 Years in Ministry both in Southern California and Utah.  The Lord has led them to Pastor High Pointe Church in Heber, Utah.  Cliff is a Pastor with a sensitive heart for people of all backgrounds and inspires them to attain real spiritual growth.  His messages are relevant, informative and encouraging.
Cliff loves spending time with Linda. He also enjoys music, horses and ancient history, almost as much as he likes chocolate.

Missi Olsen

Worship Director

Missi gave her life to Christ in 2004 and hasn’t looked back. She has been singing on the High Pointe worship team nearly every week since 2012. Though her love of singing began at age four she never dreamed that she would one day be a worship leader, which she has been doing since 2015. Missi loves her team of singers and instrumentalists and tries to honor the Lord with the music presented to Him each Sunday. “The music we present is our gift to God. It is for Him… to honor and praise Him. The music ministry works at High Pointe because we are a real team; we work together to sharpen each other. We are friends and we not only practice together; we also pray together. The blessings we receive far outweigh the work we put in. We are imperfect but God is faithful. ”

Missi is married to Troy and they have six grown children and a handful of grandkids too. She loves to study the Bible and nurture others in their relationship with the Lord. In her spare time, she loves to write, learn historical stuff, and play with her craft supplies.

Carrie Piper

She believes children should feel welcomed and at home at church. Instilling this sense of belonging is a primary goal of our Children’s Ministry.
