FIRST YEAR


"I came that they may have life, 

and have it abundantly"

John 10:10




The First Year Program at His Hill is designed to move students towards an understanding of the indwelling person of Jesus Christ through the study and application of God's Word. Our desire is not only to know Who He is, but also to know the reality of His life in us.  "...For in Him all the fullness of deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete..." Colossians 2:9-10a


Students spend twenty-three hours in class per week learning about Christ who lives in them. Resident teachers and weekly guest speakers teach from both the Old and New Testament.


His Hill accepts applications from those who have successfully graduated from High School or hold a GED. The average age of our students is 18-25, although it is not uncommon for older students to attend!

Student life

Outreaches

Outreaches are designed to train, challenge, and stretch the students as they share the Good News of Jesus in our local community through Bible clubs, elderly home visitation, youth group leadership, and more


Home Fellowship

Every two weeks students spend time in different staff members' homes. This is a time for the students developed deeper relationships with the staff families.


Discipleship Group

Students and staff spend time together in small a group setting. This time is to sharpen and encourage one another in Christ through a book study, reading Scripture, and praying together.

MISSION TRIPS

Fall Mission Trip

This is a five day trip at the beginning of October and is part of the regular school program. The trip may involve physical work, church services, evangelism, and community outreach. It is always fun and full of great blessings. While this trip has proven to enhance the students' relationship with each other, the greater purpose of the trip is to expose the students to the needs of others and to witness first hand how Christ meets those needs through our obedience and service. 


Spring Break Mission Trips

Students have the option of signing up for a Spring Mission Trip, which takes place in March during Spring Break. We host trips to Costa RicaSan Antonio, and Israel (Israel exclusive for our second year students. Their cost is included in their tuition.)
