Ad Feedback

Steve Hill, the evangelist of the Brownsville Revival, passed away at his Alabama home Sunday after fighting a long battle with cancer. He was 60 years old.

"Today, March 9, Steve crossed the finish line. Steve lived every day with eternity in view, today he finally saw it with his own eyes. The Church has lost a general in the faith, heaven has gained a saint," a post on his Facebook ministry page said. "Please remember Jeri, Ryan, Shelby, Kelsey and the family in your prayers."

Hill is best known as one of the leaders of a revival that began on Father's Day in 1995 at Brownsville Assembly of God in Pensacola, Fla.

A reported 4 million people from 150 countries attended the services, reporting deliverance from drug and alcohol addictions and a fresh desire to preach God's word.

"A great warrior has fallen," Billy Wilson, president of Oral Roberts University, said. "One of the great evangelists of our generation is standing in God's presence today."

"My heart grieves for us, yet, my heart rejoices for Steve-he has made it," he continued. "I have lost a friend, a cheerleader, and a fellow laborer in Christ. We love you, Steve."
