Alumni Helping Alumni

Staff reached out to grads from 2017 this week as we make plans to pray and send cards of encouragement. One grad said she was struggling to find any Christian friends on campus, noting that the one group she visited spent their Friday night partying. Not more than an hour later we received a note from the grad after encouraging her to continue her search for a church. She said a 2016 grad from Hillcrest was visiting campus. The two were going to get coffee. The 2016 grad said he is there to preach the Gospel. READ THE FULL STORY HERE>>
