A distinguishing mark of His Hill is our counseling and support staff. The majority of our summer volunteers have already spent nine months with us in our Bible School discipleship program or at another Torchbearers Center. Rather than recruiting at college campuses, we know who we’re hiring on a personal level. Furthermore, as volunteers our staff are not here for the money—they truly desire to teach your kids about Jesus Christ.Watch Video

Ty answers best to those calling him when he is refered to as Captain America.
