Our Partners

New Mexico Prays – To provide resources for community change and church partnerships.

Promise Keepers – To provide opportunities and resources for heartchange and personal growth in men.


The vision of NM Men of Honor is to unite, equip, and encourage men in New Mexico through quarterly events that focus on worship, prayer, and Bible teaching.


NM Men of Honor is an interdenominational men’s ministry affiliated with New Mexico Prays. We seek to help men become more devoted Christ-followers and strengthen their marriages, families, work place, church and community.


Christ-centered: We seek to honor Jesus Christ in everything we do and say. We strive to put Christ first and give Him the preeminence in all things. There is no room in NM Men of Honor for pride, self-promotion or arrogant boasting. We live for His glory and His renown, not to exalt ourselves or our ministry. The primary motivation behind everything we do must be to honor Jesus and give Him the supremacy. Jesus is the Head of NM Men of Honor and we are His servants. It’s not about us—it’s all about Jesus.

Bishop John W. Hill

Bishop John W. Hill

Founder and Senior Pastor of God's Way Community Church

Bishop John W. Hill serves as Founder and Senior Pastor of God’s Way Community Church since 1988. His pastoral ministry focuses on spiritual growth and development, excellence in leadership, and faith-based community development. He believes that this is all founded on 3 principles: prayer, faith, and commitment.

Bishop Hill acknowledged and received his call to the Ministry in 1975 under the leadership of Bishop Ernest Cox. He served and grew under his leadership for 15 years. He worked faithfully in his local church, and within the State Churches of God in Christ. While working faithfully in the ministry, Bishop Hill completed degrees in Mechanical Engineering, and Business Administration.

Blessed with a vision and desire to see other people excel and become what God wants them to be, he founded a non-profit organization entitled Hands of Transformation (HOT) in 1992. HOT targeted individuals coming directly out of the prison system, individuals with drug and alcohol addictions, and lack of life skills, and broken family relationships because of past drug behavior. This organization was created so that people could see and experience the restorative power of our risen Savior.

Bishop Hill retired as President & CEO of Steelbridge Ministries in July 2019. God used him mightily in that role for 14 years to inspire, educate, and empower men and women to see what God sees in them. Through the restorative power of Jesus, they can overcome anything!

You ask, “What is Bishop Hill doing now?” He continues to teach, preach, inspire, and educate men and women in leadership to continue to advance their spiritual growth. If you have spent time with Bishop Hill, you learn within the first few minutes that he truly has a heart for people and a Vision to see men and women transformed, restored, and growing.

He has served in ministry for over 45 years, has been married to Elder Beulah Hill for 49 years, has raised four children, and also has 6 grandchildren.
