The Hillcrest Institute


The Hillcrest Institute of Lifelong Learning (The H.I.L.L.) exists “To equip God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up..." (Ephesians 4:12)  Whether you have just joined His family or have been a believer for fifty years, you never quit needing to be equipped.

The discipleship path up the H.I.L.L. is clearly marked. You will want to begin the climb immediately. It is balanced, comprehensive, progressive and modern.

Discipleship courses are offered on Sunday evenings from 5:30-6:30 p.m., and on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:00p.m. during the spring and fall semesters, and will help you:

  • Honor the Lord of Life,
  • Invite your World to Life,
  • Love the Fellowship for Life,
  • Live the Word in Life.

In this six-week study, Pastor Tom will lead a timely discussion of how to follow Jesus in an age of outrage.
