We are pleased to welcome Cedric Hill to our staff as our new Connect Pastor!
As a Columbus native, Cedric graduated from Columbus High School in 2010 and went on to graduate from Morehouse College. From there, he decided to pursue a PhD at Rice University in Houston, TX.
"I began feeling a slight nudge that maybe God had a different purpose for my life than I’d planned," says Cedric. "That nudge would continue to grow until I made the decision to end my time in graduate school after just a year. I started to work at a high school, tutoring students in Algebra, a time in which I would first hear my call to ministry. "
As God continued to move on his heart, Cedric began an internship at Lakewood Church, which he credits to the development of his calling, equipping and passion for ministry.
In 2019, Cedric moved back to the Columbus area where he helps his parents with their small businesses.
"I’m excited to be a part of the Connect Ministry, because developing and maintaining healthy relationships with others in our church community is so essential to our lives as believers," he says.
Cedric will officially join our staff in September 2020.
