About Hugh W.
  • Education: Graduated Word of Life in New York with a one year diploma then graduated from London Baptist Bible College with a Bachelor of Religious Education then graduated from Liberty University with a Masters of Arts in Religion.
  • Experience: Youth Pastor for five years, then a senior pastor for ten followed by assisting in several churches.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Look carefully, there has to be something that relates to you and your situation.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: A five year expositional study of the book of Matthew. I’ve had people say, "I came to the church when you were in chapter so and so, while others asked if I had any other books in my Bible."
  • One of my favorite illustrations: It’s the famous words of Forrest Gump who said, “My momma always said life was like a box of chocolates…you never know what you’re gonna get.”
  • Family: My wife and I and two children, a daughter living near us and a son who is living in another province.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Excellent, like any parent would.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Excellent, most of the time.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: If you can’t be clear, at least be brief.
  • Books that have had an impact: Anything by C.S. Lewis, George Verwer’s Come, Live, Die
  • Hobbies: I enjoy studying and walk about 5 miles a day.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: I remember years ago hearing a preacher say, “What if when one of the moon landings returned and one of those who walked on the face of the moon had found a book. And he brought that book back and NASA had it printed and available for anyone to read. How many of you would want to actually own and read a copy of the book that could hold the secrets of the universe?” Them he went on to point out that each of us has access to a book that came not from the moon but from the very presence of God Himself and this book was actually dictated by Him. Listen, God wrote a book. Have you read it yet?
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I used to do the service in a nursing home once a month and one lady always sat in her wheelchair in the front row. One night around eleven-thirty I got a phone call from the nursing home and they said this lady was dying and would I come to pray with her and her two daughters. I went and she had the covers pulled up almost to her eyes. I read scripture and prayed and when I arrived home I got a phone call that she had died fifteen minutes after I left. Two days later I did her funeral. The next week I was doing the service at the nursing home and the lady was sitting in the front row. I had buried the wrong person.
  • What I want on my tombstone: If you hang around long enough you just might find why your here.

    Paul is emphasizing how each of us are unqualified and disqualified when it comes to the issue of salvation.

  • Saved By Faith Or Lost In Unbelief?

    Contributed on Sep 28, 2020

    Paul is hammering home the fact that salvation is not of works but by belief.

    Saved by faith or lost in unbelief? Romans 4:9-25 There were three guys discussing their obituaries and one asked, “What would you like people to say at your funeral?” One of his friends thought for minute and said, "I’d like them to say ‘He more

  • The Testimony Of Two Giants

    Contributed on Mar 13, 2009

    My dad had to be the worse driver I’ve ever met. When I was a kid he had wrecked 9 cars in 8 years. I think he saw life as a demolition derby and his only goal was to get through it alive. The funny thing was; as he got older he became extremely nervous and he started blowing the horn whenever he more

    EVERYTHING IS WONDERFUL Charles Spurgeon said, "Everything is wonderful until you get used to it." I remember the first time I ever saw an automatic transmission in a car; I thought it was amazing but, unless we ordered it now, we’d never even see a standard on the lot. I remember the more

    CHANGING YOUR MIND ABOUT SEATBELTS I remember when the seatbelt laws came into effect. People had all kinds of excuses for why they weren’t going to wear one. Some said they felt constrained, and some were afraid they’d have an accident because they thought the strap would somehow stop them from more
