  • Chris Best


  • Jeff Hilles

    Jeff has been serving in various capacities since joining Green Pines in 1995, including as a Deacon/Chairman, Discipleship teacher, Carillon pastor, and GriefShare counselor, as well as a member of various committees. He holds an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Lynchburg College and masters degrees in Business from U. of New Hampshire, and in Human Services Counseling from Liberty University. Jeff and Judy, his wife of 42 years, have two wonderful daughters, Jessica and Jenna, and four precious grandchildren. Currently transitioning into semi-retirement as Chairman of the Board, he has spent the past thirteen years working for Corporate Chaplains of America, a ministry employing over 200 Chaplains in the secular workplace, whose mission is to “build caring relationships with the hope of gaining permission to share the life changing good news of Jesus Christ in a non-threatening manner”. On April 15th, 1989, Jeff accepted Jesus Christ as both his Savior and Lord through apologetics and work of the Holy Spirit. Recognizing that God chooses to work through humanity to perfect His will, the greatest love we can show our neighbors is to gently tell them about their eternal condition.
