Peter and Karen Rasmussen became pastors of Hillcrest Church, now CityHill, in 1996. They both felt called to Apostolic ministry, which led them to pursue growth in their own congregation and ministry in the nations, particularly Denmark, the U.K., USA, Botswana, and Zimbabwe. The primary focus of their ministry is leadership development. Their message is about helping leaders manage their inner lives, experience an effective devotional life with Christ, and avoid emotional burnout. Since 2010, CityHill Church has launched 23 church sites across the city of Durban, South Africa.
