The God Who Sits in the Dark

I first met Hugh Hollowell last March when he came to First Baptist Church of Raleigh to speak to a group of Campbell students, myself included, who were participating in a poverty simulation. I had heard a little bit about the work he was doing through Love Wins Ministries and I was excited to listen to what he had to say about serving the people who are often neglected by the church, about his motivation for social ministry and how he came to Raleigh. Hugh’s enthusiasm for loving people is contagious. His approach to ministry is not typical, but it is important, it is profoundly simple, and it is a faithful representation of what it means to be the presence of Christ in this world.

About David Anderson, Jr.

I'm a wandering pilgrim anchored in the Baptist tradition, tossed about by the anabaptist current. I am a minister at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church and a recent graduate of Campbell Divinity School. I am the husband of a beautiful woman, and the father of a blond-haired boy. I am a work in progress, struggling to work out my own salvation with fear and trembling.
