The Board of Directors has initiated a search for the next president of Hillcrest Lutheran Academy in Fergus Falls, Minnesota. Since 2003 Hillcrest has been led by former President Steven Brue and is presently led by interim President Joel Egge. The selection of the next president is expected to be announced in the spring of 2017 and the new president installed in July 2017.
The mission of Hillcrest Lutheran Academy is to equip students in a Christ-centered, Bible-based environment for a life of eternal significance. As an affiliate ministry of the Church of the Lutheran Brethren, Hillcrest’s programs, values and campus life reflect the denomination’s mission and vision statements which affirm:
“In response to God’s person and grace, we worship him with everything we are in Christ, serve one another in Christian love and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all people.”
“We see God stirring in our church a fresh passion to reach beyond our own comfort to all people among whom God places us. We embrace God’s mission to bring the life-changing Gospel to unreached people in Asia and Africa, and we sense God convicting us to more intentionally reach out to people who live in our midst in North America as well.”
Hillcrest Lutheran Academy is governed by an elected Board of Directors to whom the president reports and with whom the president works to fulfill the school’s mission. The president is responsible for the spiritual, educational and financial strength of the school. The president is responsible to administer the program of the school, working with the faculty, subordinate administrative people, other staff, the student body, and in the community so as to realize the Board’s adopted policies, plans and educational objectives. The President is the executive officer for the HLA Board of Directors in matters relating to the operation and management of the school, as duly authorized by the Board, and shall have the authority to act on behalf of the Board in approval by the Board of Directors.
