NEWBURGH – “It’s not easy starting a ministry from scratch… That’s what we did. When God sends you out… God will meet every need. We are here almost 21 years later in a building that belongs to us. We’re no renters… 55,000 square feet all because of our obedience to God. When you obey God, God will make a way,” said 1st Lady of the Cathedral at the House, Dr. Denise Woody. “Everybody that God assigned to you will be there. Just do the work.”
That was the call set forth to Timmeon Murphy Hill at his Pastoral Installation on Saturday, December 11th. Apostle Jeffrey C. Woody, Th.D, pastor of the Cathedral at the House, who is known for his work in the community like feeding the homeless, installed him as pastor of the Integrity Church Ministries located in Spring Valley, NY. He is currently having a weekly bible study called the Word Experience.
“We’ve been running for three years. We are live every Wednesday from 7-8:30 [on Facebook Live]. Before the pandemic we were live. We were in person from Rockland County. We were at two different sites. One was the library. One was the Salvation Army… We had to transition to reach the people… The people have been coming and receiving healing and miracles,” said Minister Myah M. Hill, the wife of Pastor Hill, who was ordained at the service and says they are in the process of getting a building.
Minister Isaac D. Sanders was also ordained by Apostle Woody at the Installation Service.
“I have followed Pastor Tim since he was a minister and we were in our former church together. He’s always followed the voice of the Lord and done what the Lord said. So, I knew that it was the will of God to serve under him in his ministry,” said Minister Sanders who is a member of Integrity Church Ministries and has known Pastor Hill for 27 years.
Pastor Hill is currently a resident of Cornwall and has been attending the Cathedral at the House regularly for several months while having his own weekly bible study.
“In this work, you can’t just go out. You have to have the official service…God called him. He said yes. So, we just laid hands on him today to confirm what God has done,” said Apostle Woody. “If he decides to connect with us, he’ll be a pastor under us.”
Apostle Woody is in covenant fellowship with Pastor Hill.
“He installed me because he believes that it is God’s will… He is doing what he believes he is led by the Spirit of God to do,” said Pastor Hill who is grateful that Pastor “Mike Flowerz” told him about the Cathedral. “When I moved up here, I was looking for a church to fellowship with… I came and the Holy Spirit just took over the service. Bishop [Woody] didn’t even preach. He released me to go forth and minister prophetically to his people…. It was like our hearts just connected… I’m so thankful to him.”
