Help transform the life of a high-school student: provide a scholarship to attend City on the Hill


You can help equip and engage the next generation of Christian leaders by supporting students to attend City on the Hill.  This unique one-week experience for high school students is designed to teach worldview principles and develop leadership skills.


Held in Lancaster, PA on the campus of Lancaster Bible College, City on the Hill incorporates the political process into a week filled with engaging sessions, top-notch speakers, unique experiences and off-campus trips like Hershey Park.
