Then in 1996, Dr. Joshua Joy Dara, Sr. moved to Central Louisiana and became our current pastor. He has served longer than any pastor in the history of Zion Hill. The membership increased from 75 to more than 3500 through his charismatic and unique style of preaching and teaching the Word of God. There are now over 50 ministries in the church that serve every aspect of life. Church services are broadcasted weekly on more than two television stations across Louisiana as well as multiple Social Media Platforms that reach national and international audiences.
In 2002, the Zion Hill Family moved into a new multi-million-dollar sanctuary. In 2008, our state-of-the-art Family Life Center was opened for service. And the best is yet to come!!! Future growth plans include a school, business center to empower members to become entrepreneurs and a technology-driven Youth Center. As we advance forward, we stand firmly on the promises of God, "We know that God can do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think according to the power that worketh in us." Ephesians 3:20
