Finding Reason in Doubt

George Lyttelton was the model student. Friends were told to replicate his behavior which earnedLyttelton a place in Oxford. His studies were short lived, being compelled to write and experience life. His 1730's exploits were taken on the back of his poetry, as he saw the world differently traveling through France and Italy. 

This week Principal Isaac introduces us to Lyttelton and his fight with doubt. You'll understand his story through a brief explanation and hear how doubt drove him to Truth. You'll also get the chance to watch a short video of Tim Keller as he explains reason in faith. Visit the Principal's Blog to read more HERE>>

Mr. Undseth Challenges Class on Biblical Authority

Ask Steve Undseth what the most important subject at Hillcrest is and he will say English. He might seem a little egotistic with his statement, but if you listen long enough to his reasoning you might find yourself in agreement.

Mr. Undseth has a passion for words and how they're used to communicate knowledge. His exposition of Genesis 1 is a period of the school year that many students comment being a transformational point in the school year. 

We have captured a brief 10 minute segment of his class for parents to enjoy. Our hope with our Hillcrest Halls series is that parents will watch the videos and initiate meaningful conversations with their students regarding the discussions and Biblical Truth we're communicating at Hillcrest Academy. You can watch this video and more from this series on the Hillcrest website at the Campus Ministries Page here>>.

LiveStream Archive

Live is busy, and we understand that you might not be able to make it to every event for your student throughout the year. That's why our administration and HIT Golf Tournament have made a commitment to LiveStream.

Hillcrest's effort to partner with parents is brought to your computer through our LiveStream service which allows you to see your students as they're participating in athletic contests, enjoying special presentations throughout the year or performing in the annual Christmas Concert.

Knowing that it is difficult for families to budget time to watch when the LiveStream is aired in real-time, we have created an archive which allows friends and families to watch at their convenience. To watch the LiveStream please visit the LiveStream Archive on the Hillcrest website HERE>>.
