Don Hill was born in Ontario. He was saved as a child among the Brethren. In his teens years, he received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and began associating with Pentecostal believers.
He began his full time ministry by assisting at a small church in Toronto where he met Sarah Rowe who had come from Newfoundland. Sarah had been saved among the Brethren in her home province. They discovered they shared a mutual interest in the work of God and had common goals in life. Don and Sarah were married in 1963. God has blessed them with a Son (Don Jr.), a Daughter-in-law (Lilibeth), a Granddaughter (Rachel) and a Grandson (Jacob).
Don prepared for the ministry by studying under a German Theologian by the name of Dr. Charles Ratz who was Dean of Education at Eastern Pentecostal Bible College and received the Minister's Course Certificate. Through the coming years, he took additional courses from Berean School of the Bible which is now part of Global University.
Before Sarah met Don, she had applied to Zion Bible Institute. Shortly after they met, she received a letter advising she had been accepted for the Fall of 1962 semester. It was becoming obvious though that God was leading differently, so she decided not to go to the Institute. Later she earned a Diploma in Pastoral Theology from the Evangelical Church Alliance. Don and Sarah are now both ordained ministers in the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.
Sarah enjoys gospel music, especially the great hymns of the church. If she has a hobby, it is collecting old hymn books. She has a keen interest in Women's Ministries and loves to attend their activities.
Besides pastoring churches in Ontario and Nova Scotia, Don has lectured at Bible Colleges and worked as a Pastoral Counsellor. In 1996, Don and Sarah founded "Living Hope Ministries" to provide services for churches in Canada and to reach the lost in foreign lands.
Don and Sarah have conducted meetings in Canada, the USA, Mexico, Panama, Peurto Rico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and the Azores, returning to some of these foreign lands many times. Besides preaching in churches and open-air facilities in large cities, often to capacity and overflowing crowds, Don goes to out-of-the-way and often difficult to reach villages to distribute tracts and preach in whatever facilities are available.
Today the doors are open to return to most of the foreign countries where the Hills have ministered. Invitations have been received to visit other nations for meetings. As long as God gives them the health to go, they will go as often as funds allow and always try to go where the need is the greatest.
Don and Sarah make their home in Orillia, Ontario where they maintain an office for the ministry.
