Fill the Gap
Comets Place 7th at State
Hillcrest Experience the Same 70 Years Later

Listen to Loi Ta share how she came to trust Jesus Christ during her time at Hillcrest with special support from the ministry of Good Shepherd Lutheran Brethren Church

Help Hillcrest Fill the Gap

Every year students from around the world attend Hillcrest. Some of them come to grow in their faith, while others are seek a college preparatory high school, knowing they'll study the Bible alongside academics. The ministry of Hillcrest spawned out of the Lutheran Brethren Bible School, and it continues to train students to know and love the Lord with a strong emphasis on academic training. Students like Loi are eternally impacted because of your support to Hillcrest. Would you consider helping close a financial gap we have as we finish out our fiscal year? Your gift will give us footing to look to 2017-18 with renewed confidence in what God is doing in your school. 


Track Places 7th at State

Hans Holzner, Tommy Thompson, Eric Konynenbelt, and Luke Bowman set a school record at the section meet days before they graduated. Their time earned them a trip to the State Track Meet, where they leapt to an early lead but found a slower pace due to wind and exhaustion from a busy week of graduation and training to serve at Bible camp. The group medaled with their 7th place finish, fulfilling a dream to run in the state meet.


Students' Stories Go On

Swanhild Algaard penned a reminiscent letter in the 1941 yearbook. We discovered the letter this year in archival work for the J.H. Levang Gallery. As Principal Isaac read the letter he was struck by how much things have remained the same at Hillcrest. We encourage you to view some pictures and read Swanhild's Hillcrest memories, a student experience that is still lived today in the Castle. READ SWANHILD'S LETTER HERE>>


Life Lessons From Plants

I remember a recent statement that Hillcrest is a place where young lives are daily nourished in Christ and His Word. It is a place of spiritual care and development. I can attest to that. I have seen these “plants” grow and blossom showing the Gardener’s creative and redemptive grace. They make a beautiful garden. READ THE FULL ARTICLE>>
