Dr. Irishea Hilliard is the daughter of Bishop I.V. and Pastor Bridget Hilliard. Born on June 7, 1977 in Houston, TX, she is definitely wise beyond her years. After attending University of Oklahoma and Sam Houston State University, majoring in accounting, she decided to stop pursuing her dream for her life and fulfill her true purpose and join her parents in ministry by carrying out the ministry vision. She is an awesome mother with two sons, Ivan Harrison and Jonathan Sean-Michael.
She is currently the Chief Operations Officer at New Light Christian Center Church, in addition to the multiple titles she holds such as the Overseer of the Children’s Ministry (Dreamers), Youth Ministry, & Teen Ministry (ouRlife). Dr. Irishea counsels with parents and teens by giving them direction in working through challenges. Dr. Irishea is the On-site Pastor of the West Location. In the Movement Service, the worship style is a more radical approach versus the traditional style of worship.
Although she is over the entire NuGen Ministry, her heart is with “ouRlife” Youth ministry. Dr. Irishea was given the assignment of Spiritual Encounter. Spiritual Encounter began in 2000, and each year the growth has been astounding. It is the most incredible move of God to reach this generation in a mighty way. Churches from across America make plans each year to make sure their teens are in attendance. In 2011 she passed the baton of this great conference to her sister, but will continue to give oversight and input.
She recently became Dr. Irishea Hilliard after receiving her Doctorate in Urban Youth Ministry due to the tireless hours she spends counseling and educating youth around the world. God has abundantly blessed Dr. Irishea with “Double Grace”, in an incredible way. She has the anointing of her father and the power of her mother; blended together, she is a gift to the body of Christ. Dr. Irishea is leading this new generation into the future with the Word of God.
