About Hillside

Hillside Missions Organization exists to glorify God by working to introduce unreached peoples to Him.

3.1 billion people on earth do not have access to the Gospel and we consider that an injustice.

We work to establish Christian community in nations where people have no access to it. Hillside staff members are unified and motivated by our desire to be poured out for God’s glory and plan for the nations.

We’re most known for our mission training programs. Our nine month internship program prepares individuals and families for long-term cross-cultural ministry, while our three month internship and short-term seminars train participants for shorter trips.

More than a non-profit though, we are a Christian community working to equip the church for cross-cultural ministry, especially among unreached people groups. We are privileged to partner with different sending organizations in order to send our internship training alumni to the field.

Hillside’s History


1999   Hillside Missions Organization was founded as the international mission ministry of New Covenant Church in Bristol, CT. Since its inception, the organization has maintained a focus on providing access to Christian community for unreached people groups through training and mobilization.

2002   The mission internship and training program began. Alumni of the program currently serve in mission on several continents.

2007   The Instituto de Movilizacion Misionera (School of Mission Mobilization) was inaugurated as a project of Hillside Missions. Its goal is to train and send Latin American missionaries to work among unreached people groups around the world.

2009   Hillside Missions Organization relocated from Bristol, CT to Richmond, VA. This move was a step in response to new growth and larger goals. The organization continues to maintain a very positive relationship with the church community where it was founded.

2011   In partnership with other mission communities, Hillside initiated Going Like This, a campaign to mobilize and strategically place 50 new missionaries from North America to work in unreached people group areas.

2012   Hillside opened Edit, an art gallery that serves as a model for art as mission.

2014   The Love Your City Project began. Through this initiative, staff and interns have cleaned sidewalks, tutored refugees, and provided food to our neighbors in need.

2016   Hillside had it’s biggest class of long-term training interns.
