The Glorious Gospel • July 1, 2018 • Dwayne Cline
When I stood in the back yard of the home I grew up in all I could see was forest and field. Country stretched before me for as long as I could see. Never did I expect or imagine that God would call me to minister at a church in the heart of the city. God has a heart for the city. The city is alive with various cultures, languages and people groups. The poor live in the heart of the city. God has called His people to love the city. I have had the privilege of pastoring at Hughson St since they called me to serve here on January 1, 1995. God has provided me with a wonderful wife and ministry partner, Aimee. We are blessed with four beautiful children named Ethan, Abby, Jewel and Ivy. When I look out my back yard today I see the city and hear God's voice calling me to love the people in our city.
