About the Author

Bishop Donald is a Son, Husband, Father, Pastor, Painter and Professor. A true Renaissance Man who celebrates this year thirty years as Senior Pastor of Cathedral International. Reverend Hilliard was called to the pastorate of Cathedral International (formerly Second Baptist Church) in Perth Amboy in 1983. Church membership has grown from 125 members in 1983 to an excess of 5,000 today. Now, as "One Church in Three Locations," this vibrant ministry has grown to serving the specific needs of three locations of worship in urban areas of New Jersey: Cathedral International in Perth Amboy, Cathedral Assembly by the Shore in Asbury Park, and Cathedral Assembly in Fields in Plainfield.
Bishop Hilliard also serves as President of the Pastor's Leadership Alliance Network, and travels the world as a renowned preacher, who is also a motivational speaker. In 2006 after a life-threatening illness, Bishop Hilliard reinvented himself by resurrecting his gift of painting by creating original pieces of art through his abstract expressionistic company, Pulpit to the Palate Art. His premier collections of over 70 original pieces include the recently exhibited "Let Go, Let Gesture: Abstract Ascension" series as well as "Divine Liturgy in Abstract" and "From the Pulpit to the Palate" series. Bishop Hilliard has earned degrees from Eastern College (now Eastern University) of St. Davids, Pennsylvania; Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, New Jersey; and in 1990, a Doctor of Ministry degree from United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, as a Samuel D. Proctor Fellow. He is the author of ten books on a variety of relevant topics including "Church Growth from an African American Perspective," "After the Fall: Resurrecting your life from Shame, Disgrace and Guilt," "Journal Your Journey: This Too Will Pass," "Faith in the Face of Fear - 10th Anniversary Edition," "A Lenten Journey -Lessons Learned in the Wilderness," "Pentecost: Real Power for Real Times," and most recently, "Midlife, Manhood, and Ministry" published in April 2013 by Judson Press. In April 2013, he will serve as Executive Producer of the play, "Stop the Funeral," based upon the book and featuring Grammy winner Marvin Sapp.
"What you see over the last 30 years has been a divine leap of faith," said Hilliard, who partners in ministry with his wife, the Reverend Phyllis Thompson-Hilliard. They are the proud parents of three wonderful daughters: Leah, Charisma, and Destiny.
