Hillside Baptist Church is proud to have Pastor Kevin Fath serve as its founding pastor. Pastor Kevin grew up in the home of a pastor just outside Palmyra, PA for most of his childhood. He completed his undergraduate work at Cedarville University in 1995 and moved to Smithville, the hometown of his wife, Heather, in 1996. Their four children continue to be a tremendous blessing.
Pastor Kevin served as the Youth/Assistant Pastor of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Sterling from 2000-2011. His graduate work is from Baptist Bible Seminary in Clarks Summit, PA. He is blessed to have received excellent training and has a heart for the Lord and His people. He loves teaching the Word of God to individuals of all ages, and in his spare time, he enjoys working around the home, doing light construction projects, and playing whatever sport is in season whether it be golf, basketball, or pickleball.
