PASTOR TERRY L. HILL JR.
Monday - Friday 6am-9am
Rev. Terry Lamar Hill, Jr. is the founding Pastor of The Citadel Church of Jacksonville. A native of Florida, he is the oldest of five children born to Rev Terry and Lady Debora Hill, Sr. Needless to say, Pastor Hill’s first ministry is to his family. He is married to his life’s partner, the lovely Lady Kim Yvette Hill. Together they have two beautiful daughters: Brianna Nicole and Terria Yvette.
His walk in the call of God began at an early age, preaching his first sermon at only nine years old. Formally, he accepted the call to preach in 1992. He was ordained into the Gospel Ministry by his father in 1998. As a local artistic talent, he has written, produced and performed in numerous stage plays. Pastor Hill has authored his first book, “When God Speaks Through Our Children.” It is the first in a series of devotionals. Pastor Hill extends his media outreach as an on-air personality and host of Power Up with Pastor Terry on Praise 107.9FM.
Pastor Hill has studied at Jacksonville Theological Seminary and is a graduate of Logos Christian College. In 2006 he completed the prestigious Summer Leadership Institute of the Harvard Divinity School, an intensive executive training program for clergy, lay leaders, and community activists who are involved in faith-based community and economic development. In August of 2012, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity Degree from St. Thomas Christian College.
In October 2008, a new level of ministry was achieved when The Citadel Church was established. Under Pastor Hill’s leadership, The Citadel Church is quickly becoming a solid presence in the community as they seek to “Build Lives, Build Community and Build the Kingdom.”
