Prior to taking their stateside role as Mid-Atlantic Representatives and Global Missions Advocates for Ethnos360, Dave and Joyce served 16 years in Papua New Guinea. They began their field ministry in a Highlands tribe, then moved to reach out to a tribe on a small island. Deteriorating health forced them to leave this area.

Dave and Joyce returned to the mainland and served at Field Headquarters where Dave supervised the graphics division of the organization’s publications department as well as offering assistance through practical helps to outlying tribal areas with his building skills. He also assisted in training national believers for ministry, taught Bible classes in a government school and journalism at the organization’s school for missionary children.

Joyce served the field in bookkeeping and as a proofreader and typesetter for the publications team. She conducted classes in domestic care for national women and developed a local ladies outreach ministry through Bible studies. Joyce also assisted in teaching classes at the boarding school and provided music/piano instruction.

Together Dave and Joyce ministered to co-workers through their gifts of hospitality and helps. Dave and Joyce worked with another couple as spiritual advisors with two of the high school classes.

Before partnering with Ethnos360 the Hilts served in local church ministries in south-central Pennsylvania. They began in youth ministry, then began focused Bible teaching among young families, and eventually developed an evangelism and home-discipleship outreach in their community. It was at this juncture of life when God challenged them to embrace missions in light of Romans 15:20: "to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named."

Dave and Joyce are available to speak to your church, in conferences, in small group settings, home meetings, speaking in camps, schools, colleges, to children and teens, and hosting a variety of cultural events to stimulate the greater interest of God's heart for the world. Schedule them to show you “what you don’t know you don’t know.”

The Hilts’ passion is to see the Lord raise up those who will go to the ends of the earth in planting churches among the nations. Dave and Joyce bring with them a fresh and invigorating focus on missions, often using drama and other visual means to stimulate a greater interest in missions.

Dave and Joyce were married in 1974. They have one daughter and three grandchildren. They reside in York, Pennsylvania.
