The Church of the Lutheran Brethren of America spawned out of revival movements in the late 1800s. In these movements many youth caught a fire for evangelism and mission.

The small synod devoted nearly all efforts to sending missionaries to unreached people groups. The heart of China and Africa were touched by Lutheran Brethren missionaries in the early 1900s, and the schools the Lutheran Brethren formed were integral in supporting, caring, and sending future missionaries to these unreached areas.

The Church of the Lutheran Brethren formed Hillcrest to guide young people to carry the vision and passion for strong Biblically-based theology while also carrying the Gospel message to the ends of the earth. Hillcrest proudly represents the Lutheran Brethren mission, continuing to train young people in the Biblically-based mission-minded tradition of the Lutheran Brethren.
