Reach. Grow. Send.


At Hillside, we want to reach out to people for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, grow as followers in Christ, and put our faith into action as we are sent out to impact the world.

Our volunteers are an important part of accomplishing this purpose. Please share your time and talents by serving and helping us grow within the church.

  • hcc local missions group

    Our goal is to impact the community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through serving others. The Local Missions Group meets on the last Tuesday of the month to distribute food to the homeless and needy of the Pittsburgh area.

    The group also strives to serve the local community through service projects as well as serving alongside larger corporate missions experiences. 

    Our mission is also to make an impact within the community as well as those within our church family.

  • Haiti

    For nearly 30 years, Hillside Christian Community has been an important partner with Pastor Vaugelas Pierre of Lacroix, Haiti, in the building and support of the schools, churches, and medical clinic of the New Testament Mission, located approximately 80 miles north of Port-au-Prince. In Haiti, more than half of the population lives in extreme poverty, and parents, especially in rural areas, cannot afford an education for their children. Through our Haiti Child Sponsorship Program, HCC is changing the lives of the people of Lacroix, one child at a time. Child sponsorship helps to provide:

    A Quality Education so that opportunities may be opened for children through employment and improved quality of life for themselves and their families. The New Testament Mission schools provide education to students from preschool through 12th grade, and since it's founding, the schools have seen enrollment grow from less than 200 to over 3000 students!

    Hot Meals and Medical Attention for children to ensure that their physical needs are met and that they are ready to learn and grow. A hot meal is provided daily to the students of the schools, and the medical clinic has been a ministry not only to the people of Lacroix and the nearby area, but also to the entire country.

    A Christian Environment to guide children in their spiritual growth. Through the work of New Testament Mission, hundreds of children and their families have made a commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ because of the love expressed to them each day.
