Church focus: Hickory Hills Worship Center

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, January 31, 2006

Hickory Hills Worship Center is located in Alabaster and currently has about 80 regular members.

The church is pastored by Donald Jeffers. Pastor Jeffers graduated from Mid-America Christian University in 1990 with a bachelor&8217;s degree in pastoral ministry, secondary education, English and Bible.

He was first at Center Point First Church of God as associate pastor and school principal.

In March 1994, he accepted the head pastor position at Hickory Hills Worship Center.

HHWC offers Wednesday night adult Bible studies, Children&8217;s Royal Rangers and Missionettes and Spoken For Youth Ministries.

Hickory Hills Worship Center started as a &8220;home&8221; church in 1951. Later, it moved into its first building in Maylene. In the early 1960s, fire destroyed the building and the church relocated to its present location. The church is currently in the middle of a building campaign to add an additional 8,000 square feet to its facility.

Hickory Hills participates and supports various local ministries such as Love in Action food and clothing ministry, Teen Challenge, Gideon&8217;s and several world missionaries and Children of Promise.

Jeffers is a volunteer chaplain with the Shelby County Sheriff&8217;s Department and the Thompson High School football team and band. Jeffers said he believes the church is to be used as an outlet for God&8217;s love.

&8220;Hickory Hills Worship Center exists to share the love and message of Jesus Christ throughout the community, and in doing so, meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the community.&8221;
