Reggie Undseth Shares Eternal Significance Discovered at Hillcrest

Reggie Undseth reflects on three latin phrases that followed him through his Hillcrest experience. Learning the phrases in his seventh grade class, Reggie reflected on tempus fugit, rigor motis, and imago dei. He closed his address saying, "Do not fear rigor motis, because God has himself already experienced it for us when He sent His Son, Jesus Christ to die in our place. More than that, Jesus rose again from the dead and has given us an everlasting hope. And that hope is this: that we are created in His image. And this message is meant not just for us, but to be told to every living person on earth."


Thomas Martinson Reveals Victory in Christ Found in Hillcrest's Halls

1 Corinthians 15:58 says, "Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain." Thomas exhorted his class to understand that "Jesus Christ gives us victory in life and death. What do we do? We remain steadfast on the foundation of the Bible we have been taught at Hillcrest, to be immovable in our faith, and to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world, doing the work of the Lord. Pursue your passions and serve God in the ways for which He has created you."

Hanne Yndestad - Equipped for Life with Eternal Significance

Hanne came to Hillcrest looking for hope, joy, and peace. She didn't purpose in her previous school. However, after only a few months at Hillcrest she gave this video testimony of a life eternally impacted by Jesus while Hanne attended Hillcrest. Giving to Hillcrest Academy provides opportunities for students like Hanne to hear the Gospel in their high school. 

Equipped with Biblically-based Christ-centered Theology

Dr. Eugene Boe from the Lutheran Brethren Seminary spoke at Hillcrest's Spiritual Formations Day this year. His attentiveness to Biblically-based theology has been welcomed insight as he has given consultation to Hillcrest's Bible program, which feeds into each academic discipline. With many Hillcrest staff former or current Lutheran Brethren Seminary students, a focus and direction in the Lutheran Brethren's grace-based theology is evident in nearly every conversation and chapel service that guides students to see the character of God.

Amy Michael Finds Personal Relationship with Jesus at Hillcrest

Amy grew in confidence of God, but never felt like she knew Him as she was raised in a God-fearing and Jesus-loving home. Through her time at Hillcrest she was called to take her faith to another level, relying on Jesus in times of joy and hardship as she experienced both during her two years in the Castle. What Amy is taking from Hillcrest is a conviction that Jesus is the savior of the world, and his death and resurrection were a mark He placed on Amy to call her into a personal relationship with Him.

Hans Receives Character Forming experiences in Hillcrest's Program

Hans Holzner's talent didn't enable him to breeze through his Hillcrest experience. Hillcrest seeks to form character in students, and for Hans that happened in some challenging ways. Through Hillcrest's rigorous academic and extra-curricular program, Hans was able to lean on Christ as he found the need to mold his character to better reflect Jesus Christ.
