Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and creative studio whiz, George Hillman grew up in a very musical home. his mother was a gifted opera singer and his dad played jazz piano and upright bass. At age 24, George’s musical aspirations and life trajectory was permanently altered through several events that led to his “becoming a Christian on purpose”. Jesus introduced Himself to George! Almost immediately he became involved in ministry. Over time the Lord refined George as he served in various churches and ministries as a worship leader/musician, youth leader, counselor, and evangelist.
In 1988 God brought about an opportunity for George to build and run a world-class recording studio for a local church pastored by a man who was onced signed to CBS records.. There he recorded and produced many local, national and a few world-renowned Christian artists and ministries. In 1993 George ventured out himself as a Christian singer / songwriter. Over the course of the next year He recorded and released a CD called “Walls of Freedom”. The opportunity also came for him to tour the East Coast performing and ministering – even opening for a few well-known Christian artists of that time such as T-bone and Crystal Lewis.
“Christian” ought not be a categorization of what you do, but a statement of who you are…and IF said to be Christian, it should only mean that your entire being is found to be patterned in the image of ChristGeorge Hillman
Soon after the call to a different ministry became apparent. George began attending a church where though he ministered and recorded with their worship team, he was absolutely enamored with – and heavily influenced by the verse by verse through the bible teaching there. This ultimately led to him being sent out and ordained to become the pastor of a small congregation in New Jersey.
Decades later music has never ceased to be a part of George’s life and ministry. Currently George is committed to recording and releasing singles independently online. Stay tuned – new music and videos are ALWAYS on the way!
