The YES Fund was established at Hillyer in 2002 with the belief that financial constraints should never be the obstacle that prevents anyone from experiencing the life-changing ministries that can occur at youth events such as camps, retreats, and mission trips. The YES Fund is a need-based scholarship fund. To apply, simply fill out the form and return it to the Associate Minister at Hillyer Memorial Christian Church.
As an alternative to the YES Fund, Hillyer offers monthly payment plans. Please contact the Associate Minister for more information.
