The Mission and Outreach Team leads our church’s efforts to share the love and message of Christ through local and global missions partners.

The Hillcrest family takes seriously Jesus’ words in Acts 1:7,”…you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” This is our strategy for missions and outreach: to be Christ’s witnesses to people near and far away, including those who are like us and those with whom we have little in common.
