EULESS—The Southern Baptists of Texas awarded evangelist Ronnie Hill with the Roy Fish Lifetime Achievement in Evangelism Award at the Empower Conference, Feb. 24.
Hill, who was saved at age 8 and baptized into First Baptist Church in Brazoria, learned the power of prayer and evangelism at an early age as he saw his father come to faith in Christ. Hill surrendered to a call to ministry as a teenager and began traveling with the Kelly Green Evangelistic Association (KGEA) while a student at Oklahoma Baptist University. He later transferred to the University of Mobile, graduating with his bachelor’s in 1990, and then earned his Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
After 10 years with the KGEA, Hill launched Ronnie Hill Ministries and continued to serve as a full-time evangelist.
Hill thanked the SBTC for the honor, noting his relationship with Roy Fish while a student at Southwestern.
“Dr. Fish kept me accountable in my personal walk with the Lord and also in sharing my faith, so it’s a huge honor,” Hill said.
