John Hugus

CH (LTC) John Hugus, USAR (Retired) continues in a very active chaplaincy ministry. John lives in Jacksonville, FL, and is shown here on Palm Sunday afternoon. One nautical tradition on this festival is the annual “Blessing of the Boats.”  Though an Army Chaplain, John provides a joint and inter-agency ministry at the invitation of city officials along with assistance from the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office and the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. A 30-minute procession of sail and power boats passed along a point on the St John’s River. A fountain behind John depicts the “Lone Sailor.”  Each boat and their passengers received a blessing along with a sprinkling of water he blessed.

In addition, John is active with the local American Legion and served as a busy, contract instructor for the nearby Navy bases leading CREDO programs with service members and their families.

Ministry Report
I am doing ministry through my church in Birmingham, AL, the Inverness Vineyard Church. I am also teaching a Bible class at the Brother Bryan Mission in Birmingham, a resident ministry to those who have had addiction issues, homelessness, or financial tragedies. This program teaches men how to become Christians and walk as believers, getting through the past issues toward stability. I am also leading men’s conferences (in the beginning stages) through my church to help men be encouraged, strengthen others, and build strong relationships toward discipleship. I just retired from 12 years of coaching baseball and football at a local Christian school, I am planning to do short term ministry to Japan in the near future.
