Minister Audra L. Hill is a native of Baltimore, Maryland, and the eldest of two daughters born to the late Brenda Boyd. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management from Notre Dame College of Maryland, in May 2007. Minister Hill is also a 2015 graduate of Notre Dame of Maryland University, from whence she earned a Master of Arts degree in Liberal Studies.

Then in January 2020, she was trained and certified as an Apprentice Facilitator from The Trauma Healing Institute. Minister Hill continues to participate in continuing education specializing in Trauma Healing and Recovery.
It was July 2016 when Minister Hill joyfully submitted to the pastoral covering of Bishop C. Guy Robinson, by becoming a member of the Tabernacle of the Lord Church & Ministries in Baltimore, Maryland. In February 2017, after much prayer, and having received confirmation from God and her pastor, Minister Hill accepted the call to preach and teach the gospel of Jesus Christ. In response, she has devoted time and attention to ministerial training and study. She was licensed in preaching ministry on September 12, 2018. Since joining the Tabernacle of the Lord, Minister Hill has served as a Bible Study Facilitator and Vacation Bible School Ministry Leader. She presently serves as a CORE Staff Member, and represents God and her bishop, as the State of Maryland Administrator for the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship.
As the CEO of JOTALIA Publishing House, a company she created in January 2020, Minister Hill was blessed to publish her first book “From Trauma to Transformation: All Things New” on February 2, 2020. This book reveals how a near-death experience restored her and led to the discovery of her passion and purpose. God is using this written work to encourage and empower others to know healing and transformation are possible, despite one’s present or past trauma.
Minister Audra Hill is the proud mother to her son: Joell N. Whitley. She and her son count it an honor and privilege to know and serve Jesus Christ, as their Lord and Savior.
