Reverend Cheryl Hill-Herder

Senior Pastor

Reverend Cheryl Hill-Herder is the younger of two children born to Clayton Sr. and the late Mildred A. Hill, godly parents who raised her in the fear and admonition of the Lord.  She is the beloved wife of Robert Darryl Herder – a man who has, clearly, been ordained by God to add a fresh, new level of inspiration, fullness, and exceedingly great joy to the “good work” their Father has begun in her life.

Covered by divine favor and guided by His love, Reverend Hill-Herder was saved by grace and set apart for the Master's use at the age of 13.  It was then that she began a love relationship with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ that prepared her for the life she now lives as His beloved disciple and Friend – one wholly committed to living out a life governed by the principles of faith, hope and love.


Blessed to accomplish Bachelors Degrees in the areas of Psychology, Marketing, History, and Education, in addition to Masters Degrees in Organizational Psychology and Clinical Counseling, God unveiled a heavenly purpose for her life when He called her to proclaim the Gospel of her Lord at the age of 26.  Since then, she has dedicated her full-time profession to the evangelism of lost souls, while encouraging the Saints of God toward spiritual growth and personal development.


Gifted with a prophetic teaching and prayer ministry, the Holy Spirit has fashioned this humble, yet powerful Woman of God with a charisma that is all her own.  For more than a decade now, her total dependence on Him has birthed new life, restoration, and revival in souls across the nation through:


Evangelical preaching 

Dynamic teaching with special burdens for men, women, singles, couples and the Christian family

Christ-centered counseling to the addicted and afflicted

Intercessory prayer leadership

Prison outreach and evangelism

Gospel choir singing


Licensed and ordained into the Gospel ministry in the year 1999 by the Abundant Harvest Fellowship of Churches, International, Reverend Hill-Herder receives leadership direction and pastoral covering from Reverend Ronald Green (Senior Pastor of the St. James AME Church of Hightstown, NJ) and serves alongside her Husband as the Co-founder of Path of Life Christian Ministries, Inc., a life and ministry training organization offering Bible-based, evangelical  programs for men, women and youth seeking to live a fruitful, purpose-driven life in Christ.


What is her heart’s passion, you may ask?  It’s simple … to be used by God as an instrument of divine healing – a messenger of the Lord Jesus Christ anointed to decree peace, liberty and strength for all who dare to believe (as she does) that He lives; and that “His” love is all they will ever need.


Her Life Verse:

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send and who will go for us?  Then said I,     Here am I; send me.    

~    Isaiah 6: 8
