Hillsong International Leadership College was established as an integral part of the overall national and international ministries of Hillsong Church. Hillsong Church as it is today is the combination of two churches, the former Hills Christian Life Centre and the former Sydney Christian Life Centre, which joined in 1999 and operates out of two main locations in Waterloo and Baulkham Hills with contributing extension services city-wide. Historically, HILC emerged from two separate entities founded by the two churches that are now Hillsong Church. However both Colleges were integrally connected from the beginning and developed along the lines of a similar ethos. The shared goal was to provide a training centre that specialised in ministry and leadership development and was grounded in the local church setting. The two separate campuses that exist today have their own unique history:
We passionately believe in the potential of all people, so we invite you to come to beautiful Australia to embark upon a life changing time of preparation. You were 'born for such a time as this' (Esther 4) and our all-consuming desire is that you would live a life of significance and be empowered by our loving Saviour to lead and impact in every sphere of life.

What is now known as the City campus of HILC, began in 1983 as the International Institute for Creative Ministries (IICM) under the aegis of Sydney Christian Life Centre. The curriculum centred largely on the creative arts including music, dance, drama and visual arts in both church and secular contexts. Ministry, theology and missions were also incorporated in the courses. In 1990, Robert Fergusson became Principal, taking the reins from David Johnson, and led the college to focus more on practical ministry training in the local church setting. College classes were moved back to the church venue and in 1993, the name was changed to Aquila College of Ministries to reflect this shift.
