Student Ministry

Hillcrest Student Ministry exists to educate, equip, and encourage students in 7th – 12th grade with the word of God to carry out the mission of God by spreading His glory throughout all the world (2 Tim. 3:16-17; Eph. 4:11-14; Rom. 15:5). We strive to be a joyful and loving community of young believers who love the Lord and His word and seek to worship God and live in faithful obedience to Jesus Christ (John 13:34-35; 4:24; 14:15).

We accomplish these goals through weekly Bible study and worship, Sunday School small groups, summer camps, mission trips, and other fun and gospel-centered activities. Join us each Wednesday night @ 6:00 and Sunday morning @ 9:15 in the youth room!
