What People are Saying
“...he has a heart to match his height...” Duffy Robbins
"I've known Barry Hill now for over fifteen years, and let's be honest, the guy is abnormally big. But, he has a heart to match his height, and he has the kind of gifts and integrity that incite teenagers to look up and listen to what he says.
Barry started out as one of my students. Now I count him as a close friend and a trusted colleague in ministry. I've watched him develop over the years as a youth pastor, a communicator, and as a man of God, and I've come to admire his passion, his creativity, and his innovative approach to ministry. I'm excited about what God is doing in and through this very tall human being, and I am honored to commend to you his ministry."
"Barry Hill offers a marvelous combination of a heart for ministry to the youth of today with tremendous clarity about ways to do it fruitfully.
Central to Barry's approach is team-based ministry in which ministry teams of adults and students develop both disciples and leaders in a warm environment of friendship and excitement. His missional approach to youth ministry sees ministry to youth as the acceleration lane of a super highway in which young people are introduced to Jesus Christ, the vitality of the Christian faith, and the enthusiasm of a vital Christian fellowship.
Barry is a gifted speaker and trainer who has a wonderful way of helping people grasp the essentials of youth ministry in today's rapidly changing culture and encouraging and coaching them in their own fruitful ministries."
E. Stanley Ott, President The Vital Churches Institute
"Barry Hill towers above other speakers (literally and figuratively!). His wonderful wit, captivating stories and his innate ability to connect with both young and adult audiences make him a perfect fit for conferences, training programs and special events. Barry uses life experiences and a solid foundation of faith to reach his audiences with a powerful message of hope, inspiration and redemption. I would highly recommend him as a very effective speaker......and center for your basketball team, if applicable."

"This has been our 3rd year with Barry Hill (Moose). My high school guys and girls have grown to love and respect Barry for his many great stories, humor and solid Biblical Teachings. Barry quickly engages the "high school" mind, and takes the entire group on a journey where Christ becomes the central focus. Even in down time, Barry initates conversatons with our students and spend extra time hanging out or playing games. I wouldn't hesitate in putting Barry up in front of 10 or 1000 teenagers. I've been in youth ministry for 14 years, and Barry would easily make my FAV-?Five list of guest speakers."
Pastor Dustin Sauder, Manheim Bretheren in Christ Church, Warehouse54 Youth Ministries
"Barry has a special gift! His ability to be real with the students and relate to them on their level is amazing! A dynamic story teller with a challenging message, Barry leaves kids laughing and places a desire for more in- depth thinking. His captivating style is enhanced with personal stories that keep all on the front of their seat. A "must see" as well as a "must hear" kind of guy!"
Tracy Janusz, Youth Coordinator, Medford NJ
"Barry Hill is an excellent communicator of the claims of Christ to kids. Barry knows kids, he speaks their language, and most importantly, when speaking at events, he spends time with the kids. You cannot ask for a better person to present the Gospel to kids than Barry Hill. They not only see his words, they also see his life."
Dr. Charles Neder, Youth Conference Ministries
