James Hill, Jr. is an only child who grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which he calls his “Egypt”. When he was in the world, he was an alcohol drinker, marijuana smoker, and a womanizer. Needless to say he was self-centered, self-pleasing, and self-gaining, but when the saving grace of God took hold of him and he finally submitted to Christ, his life changed. Now, through the daily transforming of his mind, he is constantly striving to become more like Christ. He does this by reading and studying his Word, participating in praise and worship, and constant prayer – EVERYDAY. Now instead of being all about self, James is focused on becoming a better person: first for God, then his wife, and then, his 6 children.
Now, James is totally ministry minded and loves any opportunity he can get to talk about Jesus. A former account executive, he is the now executive director of God's Next Disciples, a non-profit organization for youth ages 12-25. God's Next Disciples’ goal is to raise up young leaders to be the next voice for Jesus Christ. He is the founder of Jaye Hill Speaks and holds motivational speaking engagements for schools, colleges, and corporations. He is the co-founder of Chosen Ones Christian Child Care where he and his wife pour into young children and their families. At his home church, Abundant Life Christian Center, he is an armor bearer, minister, facilitator and teacher for the Men of Valor, as well as youth outreach coordinator. He has taken several Bible classes, he is a graduate of DeVos Urban Leadership Initiative, and desires to further his seminary studies in the future. He is so grateful for God's grace in his life and knows nothing is impossible with God. James’ main goal in life now is to totally yield himself to God so he can be a vessel to help save, deliver and heal God's people.
To God be all the glory and honor.
