SHIRLEY HILL

Principal Pastor
Prophet

In 2002, God brought me to this country from Peru, with my 1 year old son. In 2007, I received Jesus Christ in my heart and after that, I served a lot in the church with my son and daughter. It was at this point that I was serving with all my life to God. In 2016, God called me to start a prayer group specifically for warfare with people who were hungry and thirsty for Him. The group began to grow into 4 prayer groups, both men and women. Two years later, God called me to be a pastor and a prophet for the nation. He spoke these words over my life:

Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying:

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

Then said I:

“Ah, Lord God!
Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.”

But the Lord said to me:

“Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’
For you shall go to all to whom I send you,
And whatever I command you, you shall speak.

Do not be afraid of their faces,
For I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord.

Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me:

“Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms,

To root out and to pull down,
To destroy and to throw down,
To build and to plant.”

Jeremiah 1:4-10 NKJV

God gave a grand purpose for my husband and I, and our family. My son, Stefano, helped me to grow the worship band and has been called to be the Worship Leader of our church. My daughter, Dayanara, is being prepared for the calling God has over her life. All the honor and the glory is solely for the Spirit of God, who represents God on this earth.

Worship Leader

At 11 years into my life, the beginning of my musical career was born. I began to learn how to play the drums from a drummer at my local church. This continued for about 4 years. At that time, I did not understand or know what would come of this, but God had a greater plan and vision set for me. I left my church and moved to another where they were looking for a drummer. At this church, I began to play the drums in the worship band with only 4 years into music, being 15 years old. I was not an expert at what I was playing, but God doesn't look at that. During those years playing at my second church, I grew, getting a taste of playing guitar. I practiced guitar on my free days and developed skills and knowledge of chords and applied what I learned on the bass guitar. Eight years later, I am here at New Life in Christ as a Worship Leader, following the vision of God and the plans He has set for me.
