A Texas native, Dr. George Hillman Jr. grew up in Denton and currently resides just north of Dallas in Frisco with his wife Jana and daughter Katherine. He enjoys traveling, reading, outdoor sports, and football, and cheers on his alma mater Texas A&M along with the University of Georgia. Dr. Hillman, who can juggle, now does so as internship director and professor of Spiritual Formation and Leadership at DTS and as Lay Institute Faculty Advisor. He brings to the table ten years of ministry experience, including a local pastorate of spiritual development. Advising the Lay Institute is a natural extension of his passion for leadership development and discipleship as he strives for the Lay Institute “to continue to be one of the premier non-degree and non-accredited, personal faith enrichment institutes in the country.”
