Pastor Jeff Hill is the founder and lead pastor of Serenity Village Community Church, based in Crystal, MN. He is a dynamic leader and powerful speaker who is passionate for Christ and for Christ’s people. Pastor Jeff made a choice years ago that altered the direction of his life; that decision was to surrender his life completely to God.
In 2004, he was given the vision to create a faith-based transitional housing platform for those recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. Starting with one house and six men, Serenity Homes was established. Today, Serenity Homes has grown to a 100-bed program for men and women that has changed the lives of over 1,000 individuals.
With the foundation of the housing ministry already in place, in 2012 Pastor Jeff launched Serenity Village Community Church (SVCC). It began as an idea that was sparked by his pastors, and birthed in a living room. The message of the church is simple: to love God’s children just as they are, to use practical biblical teachings to build up the church, and train up strong leaders who will reach the lost and teach others to do the same.
Prior to entering ministry, Pastor Jeff graduated from Bethel University with a degree in Marketing & Finance and began his career as a successful entrepreneur. With this background and the blessing of owning a business, he is able to employ residents of Serenity Homes who may otherwise have difficulty finding jobs due to their past. These jobs help them find purpose, and live a clean, God-centered life.
