Pastor Darryl Hill

hillA man with an anointing on his life and a vision for leading a nation to deliverance; Pastor Darryl L. Hill is a local Pastor with a global mission, to empower and educate the nation through the Word of God.  He is anointed and ordained to reach the broken hearted, heal the sick and transform lives.

A native of Brooklyn, New York, raised in the Van Dyke Projects, Pastor Hill endured and survived. He was a member of the Brownsville Community Baptist Church where he also attended their Bible Institute under the teaching of Rev. Harold Burton.  He later became a member of the High Times Deliverance Church where Apostle Alfonzo Udell, is the Pastor.

Pastor Hill’s God given anointing to preach and teach exploded in 1994 with the Powerful Praise Crusade Ministries Choir. He traveled across the United States, captivating the attention of many. His ability to minister to people of all walks of life, regardless of their circumstances, took him to a new plateau in his kingdom walk.  In December 1999, he became Founder and Pastor of Powerful  Praise Tabernacle. Since becoming Pastor, he has had an immeasurable impact on the spiritual life and growth of his congregation and community as a whole.

The membership of Powerful Praise Tabernacle has experienced notable year-to-year growth.  Powerful Praise Tabernacle grew from a church of 12 members to more than 500 members within a five year time span.  Because of Pastor Hill’s vision and direction, the Powerful Praise Tabernacle congregation in September 2002 moved into a 5,200 square-foot facility.  Only eight years later the vision expanded once again as Pastor Hill and the Powerful Praise family moved into it’s current facility in November of 2010.  This new facility, located at 2140 Bergen Street will accomodate the growing congregation, give birth to new programs, provide executive office space, a bookstore and much more!  More importantly, Pastor Hill has returned to Brownsville, the community he grew up in, with a vision to “pay it forward’, giving back as God blesses him.

Pastor Hill is the proud husband to the  beautiful Samantha Hill, who has proven to be a special gift from God, and a loving father of two precious daughters, Deajah and Samara.
