Dear Hilltop and friends,
I cannot express the honor and gratitude that I feel to serve as senior pastor of Hilltop Fellowship. I am so excited for the journey that God is about to take us on. From the beginning of this new journey, we embrace the past and thank God for every salvation, every transformed life, all edification received, and the victories won together over the last 16 years. It seems that God has been so good to Hilltop, and His providence is always amazing to ponder upon. As good as the past has been though, will you look to the future with me and together, let’s dream of what Hilltop is still yet to become for the Kingdom of our great God.
I believe we have a great vision here at Hilltop that we are on the verge of seeing come to manifestation. A vision to see the lost save, by preaching the gospel not with just words, but with our deeds and our lifestyle; let us preach with the way we interact with our spouses, our children, our grandchildren, aunts and uncles, neighbors, coworkers, yes even our enemies.
A vision to make disciples, seeing young families nourished, loved and taken care. A vision to see men and women raised up in the faith, children raised in the ways of Christ, teenagers taught the importance of honor, respect and purity, marriages restored, older women mentoring younger, and wise men training young guns how to be husbands, fathers and men.
A vision to see our community changed by the very presence of Hilltop being here, that widows and orphans will be taken care of, the hungry feed, the broken restored, the addicted delivered; oh,
that the community would know the love of God, just because we are here.
A vision all summed up in two phrases, that we together may love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind and soul. That we as Hilltop will love those around us unconditionally.
Today, we do not separate from the past, but together we build on the foundation of Christ and the great things already here at this local body of Hilltop Fellowship. Together let’s go and be the change that we all hope to see in the world, let’s lead the charge and say together, “Greater is He that is in me, than He that is in the World!”
