Rev. Hiller attended the Cross Point Community Walk to Emmaus in 2002 and has been assistant spiritual director on three Walks. He is serving a second term on the Board of Directors for that group.
Since 2009, he’s served as dean of Tweens camp at Cross Point; he’s volunteered in leadership for numerous other camps, too, at this United Methodist facility beside Lake Texoma. He also chaired the Cross Point Site Development Committee.
Before becoming new manager, Hiller served as associate pastor at Durant-First UMC. He also pastored Healdton-First.
He earned a B.S. in civil engineering at the University of Missouri-Rolla and is pursuing Course of Study with Saint Paul School of Theology.
