About The Grove CDC, Inc.
In 1994, The Greater Piney Grove Baptist Church established Higher Plains Ministries, Inc., a 501 (c) 3 Georgia non-profit corporation, to promote the church’s membership into spiritual prosperity; to administer to the needs of the poor and afflicted members and non-members of the congregation; and to conduct schools for the training of youth. To further address the growing need of our surrounding community, the name of the organization was changed to “Higher Plain Community Development, Inc.
In June 2008, the Board of Directors saw a need to restructure the current organization, in order to incorporate commissions that would deal with the pressing needs of the community.
