The year was 1974, and Rev. Paul Perry felt the call to Campbellsburg, KY, in the heart of Henry County, to plant an Apostolic Pentecostal church.
Along with his wife and daughters, a church was birthed that has impacted thousands of lives over the last 45+ years.
In 1999, the Rev. James Maroney, and his wife Gayla (daughter of Paul and Maureen Perry) were elected as Pastors of APC, where they faithfully served for the next 15 years. It was in 2014, that the Maroneys began to feel a shift in their ministry, that ultimately let to them transitioning to Evansville, IN where the now Pastor Abundant Faith Church.
In the fall of 2014, current pastor, Rev. Nate Roemer, his wife Sarah, and their children (Olivia ’03, Nicholas ’03, Ava ’07) transitioned from their post in Aurora, IL where they had served in a variety of ministry roles from 2004-2014.
They have served faithfully and diligently since 2014, and on the first Sunday of 2020, they officially announced that the church would be changing its name to The Hills, an Apostolic Pentecostal Church.
Pastor Nate felt that there were 5 specific criteria that had to be met in order for the church’s name to be changed. They were:
- Geographical Significance
- Cultural Significance
- Missional Significance
- Spiritual Significance
- Biblical Significance
The church will continue to be the epicenter of Apostolic worship, teaching, lifestyle and impact for Henry County and the surrounding areas.
