About Pastor Jeff Hill

Jeff Hill had a vision over ten years ago that altered the direction of his life. After struggling through life for many years, he decided to surrender his life to God. In 2004, Pastor Jeff had the vision to create a God-centered transitional housing platform for those recovering from drug and alcohol addictions. Starting with one house and six men, Serenity Village was established as a safe, faith-based “Whole-Way House”. Now, nine years later, the transitional housing program has grown to seven houses and an apartment community that has changed the lives of nearly 1,000 men and women.

In 2012, Pastor Jeff launched Serenity Village Community Church (SVCC). Already an ordained pastor, Jeff sought to create a welcoming community that focused on the functional/straightforward/simple application of sound Biblical principles. The message of the church is simple: To create an environment through love, encouragement, fellowship and practical biblical teachings that will allow those who have never felt accepted or connected to a church to be themselves and experience peace, joy and spiritual growth while developing a relationship with God.

Jeff is married to Monica Hill and has three children: Nikki, Megan and Thomas. In addition to his role as Senior Pastor of SVCC and his day-to-day management of Serenity Village, he is also an entrepreneur. In his role as a business owner, Pastor Jeff is able to employ numerous residents of the Serenity Village program which helps transition them to a sustainable, clean, God-centered, independent life.


About Monica Hill

My love for my husband, my family and our ministry is second only to my love for the Lord.  As the Director of Administration of Serenity Village Community Church, my heart is to help make our church not just a community but a family. I am privileged to work closely with the women’s ministry of Serenity Village and am excited to learn and continue to grow with the loving, and increasing, SVCC family.

Like many, I have had some dark days. Although I grew up in a religious household, I didn’t truly accept God until later in life. The moment I let Him into my heart changed me forever. Since doing so, I have been blessed with an amazing husband and the opportunity to be the best mother I can be to our three children.

My heart is open to receiving the new family God is growing before our eyes. I am joyful and grateful to see the plans He has for us and our ministries!
