About Us

Who we are

Hillside cares about one thing more than anything else: Jesus Christ.  Hillside is a family of individuals who have found hope in Jesus and simply want as many people as possible to experience his love and freedom.

We meet in two locations, Gillett and Pound, and are led by a staff team of pastors, leaders, and volunteers.

Where we come from

Hillside began in the fall of 1930, when families from Gillett attended tent meetings in Shawano and wanted to bring the life-changing message they heard and experienced back to Gillett. These families officially established the church and property in 1942 and changed the name to Hillside on December 10, 1978. 

In the beginning of 2014, the Gillett church was asked to consider and pray about restarting a church in Pound. On April 5, 2015, that church was reopened as Hillside North.  We are now one church family meeting in two locations.

Where we’re headed

More than ever, Hillside is committed to reaching out to connect people to God and others. Our mission is still to bring this life-changing hope to everyone we can.

Hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for progress. Hope in Jesus. Compelled by Christ’s love, we will become an irresistible community, passionately connecting our world to God.

What this means for you

Most importantly, you’re always welcome at Hillside. We’re saving a seat for you. Wherever you’re at in your faith journey, you’ll always be accepted as part of the Hillside family.
