Pastor Georgia Hill
Georgia Hill is the founding pastor of LifeChurch Riverside, a new church plant within the Evangelical Covenant Church’s ever-expanding LifeChurch network in metro Detroit.

For close to fifteen years, she led groups of high school students on college tours to historically black colleges and ivy league universities.
Georgia earned a B.A. from Harvard Radcliffe College; a J.D. from Howard University Law School; a Master of Divinity degree, and Doctor of Ministry degree from McCormick Theological Seminary. She is currently an adjunct faculty member at Wayne State University, and also serves as a mentor to Doctor of Ministry students at the Ecumenical Theological Seminary.
