Ryan Hill, the son of the late Steve Hill and Jeri Hill, has passed away. Charisma News learned of the tragedy this morning and will report on further details as they emerge.
Please pray for Jeri, Ryan's mother. Perhaps best known as the evangelist for the Brownsville Revival in Pensacola, Fla., evangelist and pastor Steve Hill went home to be with the Lord on in March.
Hill passed on to glory after a long battle with melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer and the leading cause of death from skin disease.
Fueled by his own dramatic deliverance from drugs, alcohol and crime in 1975, Hill dedicated his life to spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. His passion to help those who are hurting and his pursuit of genuine, God-breathed revival continued to intensify after years of missionary work, church planting and evangelistic crusades.
From 1995 to 2000, Hill served as the evangelist of the Brownsville Revival. The meetings drew more than 4 million from more than 150 nations through the doors of the Brownsville Assembly of God Church.
During the five-year revival, hundreds of thousands wept at the altars, repented of sinful lifestyles and gave their lives to Jesus. Lives were dramatically changed, marriages were restored and addictions were broken as the gospel of Jesus Christ was presented with clarity. After Brownsville, Hill and his evangelistic team continued to hold arena and stadium crusades around the world.
Hill also founded and served as senior pastor, along with his wife, Jeri, of Heartland World Ministries Church in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Hill founded Heartland School of Ministry, a soul-winning, presence-driven ministry school, as well as ProdigalsOnly.com, a website that encourages people to come back to God.
