And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. "Psalm 1:3, (KJV).

Reverend Dr. Richard Douglass and First Lady Grace O. Douglass was called by God to lead in ministry at the Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church in 2000. They have served the congregation with humility and honor week in and week out for the past 14 years. Under Pastor Douglass' leadership the Church has accomplished many things to ease suffering in the Rochester Community: Pastor Douglass and the Zion Hill family embarked on our current vision as a local church several years ago and it continues today.

"We are connecting families to Christ through Fellowship, Leadership, Outreach, and Worship."
