Our Team


Rick Hinkle (Interim Pastor)

Brother Rick Hinkle has assumed the duties of interim pastor at Hughes. For the past two years, he has served as associate pastor and minister of education. We are so blessed to have such a talented and experience individual to lead us in the coming months, as we continue to minister to the needs of our community and share the gospel to those around us.  We assure Rick and Karen of our prayers and support as we begin this new journey together.

God puts people in our path for the purpose of leading them to a personal relationship with Christ through the Gospel.  Or He puts other Believers in our path for the purpose of encouraging them in their walk with Christ.

Brother Rick


Brother Craig Gilley

More than two years ago, Brother Craig Gilley became our pastor.  He has been a strong leader, a powerful preacher, a motivating missionary, and a very close friend. Brother Craig did all of the above with the energy of a teenager and a sense of humor that we will never forget!!!

Recently, led by the Holy Spirit, he answered the call of a church nearer his home.  It is sad to say goodbye to the Gilley family. They will truly be missed!   We wish Craig, Bridget, Aleya, and Clay a Very Happy New Year! and the Blessings of our Lord!…. as we all continue to serve Him, wherever we are.

Karen Hayes - Children's Director


I am looking foward to establishing the firm foundation of Christ Jesus in our children at Hughes Memorial. I have a heart for teaching children.  Come see us and join our warm Christian family at Hughes Memorial!





Darrell Higginbotham (Minister of Music)

Music can shout “Alleluias”, offer praises and give thanks to our God.  Music can recite Psalms and scriptures, tell stories of Jesus, and comfort the troubled heart.  Music has no walls. It can share the Good News of Jesus everywhere at any time.

That is why I choose music as my way of ministering. I invite you to join me on this adventure at Hughes, where music is one of many ways we express our love to God
