RICHARD HILTON’s passion to reach the lost began when he was only nineteen. His zeal to win others to Christ launched him into evangelism as a teenager! Richard served as a full-time evangelist conducting weekend crusades while in Bible College. This same passion compelled him to revive the church by planting a multi-cultural church that broke racial, social, and economic barriers. He and his wife Theresa are the Founding Pastors of Calvary Church in Johnson City, Tennessee.  

Married for 44 years with 3 children and 10 grandchildren, they are excited about Indigo Hills because they see the blessing Indigo Hills will be to local churches, families, & marriages. Richard and Theresa share a common interest with Indigo Hills as they currently lead a coaching, counseling, and consulting ministry to leaders and local churches concerning the areas of their health, family, and growth strategies at: hiltonfamilyministries.com/
