The video above is a short video highlighting the impact of continued mission efforts by the church worldwide. The report from the video is an encouraging voice for us lately as students have been working through the re-entry phase following the Dominican Mission trip.
The Dominican Republic team returned from their week long mission encouraged. Having spent time building relationships and receiving formal introductions to the community development God has opened for Hillcrest, students have returned impassioned to communicate the need for Hillcrest to continue their short-term missions program.
The chapel service was LiveStreamed. As part of this service for families we have also elected to post the service on our LiveStream Archive for friends and family to view the special chapel presentation at their leisure.
This week's President's Blog is a reflection from Mr. Brue after returning from a morning chapel program at Hillcrest. His morning was spent sitting-in on a chapel program conducted by the Dominican Mission Team.
Reflecting on their words and the changing of the season from Thanksgiving to Christmas, President Brue gives a brief update on the school and happenings as Hillcrest moves toward another memorable Christmas concert, closing-out a blessed first semester.
