Drought in Northern Kenya
Our former missionaries, the Propsts, served in Kenya for many years. The area is suffering from a devastating drought, causing a severe famine. Pray for trucks to deliver clean water and food, along with provision for basic sanitation.

To support a team member financially:
Bringing God's love and hope across borders around the world.
All the church, sent into all the world, with all the Good News.
More than just our vision, this is our call. It is God’s mission and he has invited us to participate. We are a church for His mission.
As part of our response to see His Kingdom come locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, Hillcrest sponsors more than 40 missionaries and missionary organizations, which represents 25% of our church budget.
Hillcrest believes we are a church created for God’s glory and His ongoing purpose of transforming lives and discipling nations.
Our Missions strategy expresses this by focusing on the following:
- The world’s remaining unreached people groups are our prime concern.
- The global church is our most strategic partner.
- Poverty and injustice stand in contrast with the Kingdom of God and must be opposed.
- Hillcrest is the missionary: we will inform, equip, and send every believer we can into their mission.
