Dr. Irishea Hilliard was destined to make history. Being the daughter of a preacher, Hilliard has grown up in the church. She has worked there in various capacities as well. And now she takes on her biggest job, senior pastor of New Light Christian Center Church. Her father, I.V. Hilliard, recently gave her the reigns of the church. Now as the head of the 20,000 plus member church, Hilliard told ABC13 that she wants to show the world her heart and join generations together. "It's now time for women to step up to the plate. I think we have to do it and continue to do it from a place of integrity, do it from a place of character and know someone is watching," Hilliard told ABC13.
