50 Years in Ministry - Congratuations!

This Sunday marks 50 years in ministry for my father, Van Dale Hudson. Someone said, "Greatness in ministry is not measured in years...but in decades." I agree. For 5 decades my father has faithfully proclaimed the Gospel. He has preached in nearly every state and God has used him to reach thousands of people for Christ.

His greatest sermon has been his life. He's the real deal. He lives what He preaches. Part of the proof is all three of his sons being in ministry.

Congratulations dad! Your best years are ahead. Stay your course! We love you!


I remember van dale Hudson from a few free will baptist revivals and special events in Charlottesville, va. A great man of God. Great preacher, great singer. Would live to hear him again.

Thanks Deborah. He is still preaching and pastoring strong. I will pass this along to him.

Your dad came and held revival for my Dad, JB Ellis, at Calvary FWB Church in Jacksonville, NC in 1990. It was during that meeting that I first sang a solo in church for the first time and I've been ministering in music ever since. He actually stayed in our house instead of a hotel and we had a great time together that week. I'm glad to see he's still going strong please give him my best.

Thank you Chris. I will let him know you said hi. He is on facebook if you to connect with him.
