Pastor Reiff said this, “I have been to the Holy Lands of Israel, Jordan and Egypt (the Sinai) six times since 1998.  Each of these pilgrimages, with the attendant

studies at St George’s College, have enriched my life, my faith, and my understanding of scripture in ways that have been profound and powerful.  It has deeply affected and impacted my preaching, teaching, and ministry.”

The congregation of Shepherd of the Hills is excited to be starting a new chapter in our Christian life of worship, witness and service to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, with Pastor Reiff as our pastor and shepherd.
