About Us

Hightower Memorial Temple is a Holiness Church located at 303 College Park Drive in Douglas, Georgia. We are under the leadership of Elder Randolph D. Scott who preaches to trust in the Father, the Son, and the power of the Holy Ghost.

Hightower is one of many churches that make up the great House of God Saints In Christ (HOGSIC), whose headquarters is stationed in Jacksonville, Fl and is currently under the leadership of our Presiding Prelate Bishop Lorenzo Moore.

In the early days, Hightower was known as New Bethel HOGSIC under the leadership of our founder, the late Bishop Nick Hightower. After the passing of Bishop Hightower, the name of New Bethel was formally changed to Hightower Memorial Temple in memory of the founder of our church and organization.

Throughout the years, Hightower has had some phenomenal God fearing leaders. After Bishop Hightower came Bishop J. L. Litman who led the church and organization for 23 years. After Bishop Litman came Elder Frank Bussey Sr., who taught great memorable messages such as “It’s Behind What You See”, and “Live Successful”.

Hightower is currently under the leadership of Elder Randolph Scott, a native of Orlando, Fl. Pastor Scott has been the leader of Hightower for 10 years, bringing in powerful messages and promising leadership from day one. Pastor Scott has ushered in many great preachers to the city of Douglas through Hightower such as Elder Rance Allen, Evangelist Beverly Crawford, Dr. K.C. Price, Evangelist Dorinda Clark-Cole, and most recently Bishop Noel Jones. Pastor Scott has also implemented many revivals, services, and conferences that have helped the members of this church grow spiritually. If you are ever in Douglas, Ga, be sure to stop by and experience a great Holy Ghost filled service here at Hightower Memorial Temple, the Church Where the Happenings, are Happening!
