The Vision of Northeast Presbyterian Church
CONNECTING people to GOD and each other through Christ by gathering, growing and going.
I was born in Austin, Texas, while my parents attended the University of Texas. My father became a globetrotting professor, which privileged us to live in the American Southwest, Europe and Latin America before heading to Rock Hill, SC, where I spent my high school years. I graduated from the USAF Academy and flew helicopters for five years with tours in Vietnam, Florida and the Panama Canal Zone. * I resigned the USAF to attend Columbia Biblical Seminary (CIU) where I found my wonderful wife Cathy. Upon graduation in 1979 I was called to serve in the organization of Northeast Presbyterian Church where I continue to this day. I also have a Doctor of Ministry degree from Reformed Theological Seminary. Cathy is the creator of The Lamppost, our church’s unique reading and friendship center. * We have two children: Emily Hughes (Charlotte, NC) and Daniel (Charlotte, NC). * My favorite verse? John 8:36: “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”
