My Name is Reverend Jeffrey Hilpert. I am ordained through the Independent Assemblies Of God International. I have been a Christian most of my life, since I was a small child. I grew up in a lower middle class home in Billerica, Massachusetts. My parents were very strict Christian people. Being the oldest of four children, my upbringing in the 1960 s and 70 s was very strict by today s standards. Being naive to the many things of the world, I made a lot of mistakes. I have been through 5 divorces. One was of my choosing the others were filed by my ex-spouses. I was not an abusive man, but certainly principled. I certainly learned (very slowly), God s way isn t compromising. I graduated High School in Billerica, MA in 1981. After one year of college with no direction, I joined the Marine Corps Reserve, and went to Parris Island, Marine Corps boot camp, in the summer of 1982. That fall I went back to college as an undeclared major, and discovered I had no idea what I wanted to do. I left college in spring of 1983 and worked full time, running a carwash, until finally becoming a full time Police Officer in 1987, in Durham, NH. I have spent a total of almost 10 years in law enforcement, 7 years in the Marine Corps reserves, 20 years as an optician, and the list goes on. I have been a deacon in a church, Sunday school teacher, a life group leader, life group leader coach, and ordained minister. I am presently married to the sixth and final Mrs Hilpert, who truly is the most amazing wife I could have asked for. God definitely worked a miracle for me to have been blessed with her at this stage of my life.
