Hill Consulting Group Consultants

The Hill Consulting Group Consultants

HCG has assembled church and ministry experts with broad experience and a wealth of training that allows clients to have the up-most confidence that our consultants can help to diagnose the problems, prescribe proven and creative solutions, and access the resources and tools needed. These consultants are not academicians - but practitioners with successful track records.

Because no one person has all the wisdom required to remedy some problems, we have a team of consultants who work together combining their skills and giftedness to offer wisdom and practical solutions to church and ministry executives who have the courage to admit that they don’t have all the answers because often "we cannot see the forest for the trees!"

Moreover, our cadre of consultants allows our clients to select their own consultant, should you wish, or simply allow us to help match your need with the right person or team.

Below is a list of the HCG Consultants with a brief summary of their backgrounds. All of our consultants are to be reached through our HCG offices.
