Rev. Jim Hilker joined us here at Faith UCC on July 8, 2018. He comes to us with almost 25 years of ordained ministry experience.  He served at Immanuel UCC in Carlyle, Illinois from 1993 to 2000 and Trinity UCC in Pottstown, Pennsylvania from 2000 to 2015 where he served as co-pastor with his wife, Rev. Lisa Martin. Since April 2016 he has served as supply pastor at Zion UCC in Troy Missouri.

Jim earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Millersville University in 1985 and a Masters of Divinity from Eden Theological Seminary in 1993. 


Pastor Jim serves Faith United Church of Christ through a shared ministry with nearby Grace UCC. We are two separate churches, with similar goals, and one pastor.  Pastor Jim leads each Sunday service at each church separately , and flexes his office hours between the two churches.
