New Discoveries: February 10-11 2022


Sometimes we pass through each day not seeing God at work.  When we pull out our magnifying glass and look closer we can see God in the midst of each day especially in creation.  How does each detail in creation point to the Creator?  How can we seek out new discoveries every day that point us back to God?

Speaker: Dave Hilt

Dave Hilt









After 21 years of mobilization efforts in the Mid-Atlantic/Greater Northeast, Dave and Joyce transitioned to Southwest USA in 2020. Prior to taking their stateside role as representatives and global missions advocates, Dave and Joyce served 16 years in Papua New Guinea.

Dave and Joyce returned to the mainland and served on the field headquarters publications team where Dave supervised the graphics department. He also assisted in training national believers for ministry, taught Bible classes in a government school and taught a journalism class at the mission boarding school.

Before partnering with Ethnos360, the Hilts served in local church ministries in south-central Pennsylvania. They began in youth ministry and then conducted focused Bible teaching among young families, eventually developing an evangelism and home-discipleship outreach in their community. It was at this juncture of life when God challenged them to embrace missions in light of the Apostle Paul’s declaration in Romans 15:20: “to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named.”

The Hilts’ passion is to see the Lord raise up those who will go to the ends of the earth in planting churches among the nations.

Dave and Joyce were married in 1974. They have one daughter and three grandchildren. They now reside in Apache Junction, Arizona.
