Senior Pastor: Clay Hilton
Clay and his wife, Cinnamon, have been married for thirteen years and have four children, Gracie (10) and Ivy (8), Anna (5) and Steven Clay Hilton II (2).
They are originally from Louisiana, but have lived most of their married life in Texas. They moved to Fort McMurray in 2008 and now consider Fort Mac their new home.
Cinnamon is a registered nurse and specializes in taking care of people with heart, kidney, and brain issues. She works as a nurse at the Primary Care Network in the Morrison Centre. She is way smarter than Clay, and totally out of his league.
Clay is a graduate of The University of Louisiana at Monroe and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where he received his Master’s degree in Theology.
Clay has been in the ministry for sixteen years. He has been the youth pastor of First Baptist Church of Huttig, Arkansas. He started an apartment complex ministry while in seminiary, and started Mid-Cities Community Church in April of 2000. He pastored at Mid-Cities Church for 8 years before he moved his family to Fort McMurray. Mid-Cities Church is now a thriving, growing church in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
Clay and Cinnamon are convinced that putting Jesus Christ in the center of the family is the key to marriage, work, parenting, and every other area of life.
