Giving thanks for the life of Donald Hugh Bessell

By Peter Patterson

Hugh Bessell, as he was known at Wycliffe, proved to be a wonderful addition to the Board of Directors when he joined in November 2000.

Besides his considerable financial qualifications and experience, Hugh brought wisdom, good judgement, and a strong commitment to his faith. He participated willingly at any Board event at the College, and carefully scheduled his own travels to not interfere with his attendance at Board meetings each month.

“Behold, I Am Coming Soon” - A Sermon Series on the Apocalypse

“Behold, I Am Coming Soon” - A Sermon Series on the Apocalypse

The Revelation to John, also known as the Apocalypse, is one of the most misunderstood works in the entire canon of Scripture.
