Our Team 6

Dianne Hill

women's ministry leader

Growing up in South Georgia as a preacher’s kid, Dianne had a head knowledge of Jesus and the Bible; but it wasn’t until she was 18 years old that she realized there were no ‘family reservations’ in Heaven, and she made the personal decision and  gave her heart to Christ and was baptized. 
A few years later upon receiving some wise advice “make up your mind what kind of man you want to marry and go where there are the most of them”, Dianne moved to Atlanta, started going to the largest church in the State with the largest ‘singles’ department and began searching.  It was at the church that she met her future in-laws and they loved on her for eight months before she met Terry Hill.  Terry and Dianne served in ministry most of their 43 years of marriage and had four children.  Dianne has spoken at women’s conferences, taught parenting classes and hosted many people in their homes, in the States and in Israel.

After Terry’s death in 2016 Dianne has lived with her son, his wife and their seven children in Clinton, MS.  Dianne has 17 ‘precious treasures’, 13 in the States and four in Israel.
