Remembering Dr. Donald Hubbard Pastor, Missionary, and Friend of Word of Life


Dr. Donald Hubbard served as pastor of various churches, most notably as the Pastor of Berachah Church in Cheltenham, PA and Senior Pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in New York City, where he was the radio voice of the “Calvary Hour” heard throughout the metropolitan New York area as well as in Africa over ELWA in Liberia. He was also Senior Pastor of Boca Raton Community Church, home to Bibletown Ministries, in Boca Raton, Florida. During his time as a local pastor, he believed God was calling him to minister at Bible Conferences, to teach in Bible Institutes and colleges, and to assist in equipping and training of pastors and church leaders across the United States and overseas to preach and teach the Gospel of Christ. Dr. Hubbard taught the book of Hebrews at Word of Life Bible Institute from 2003 to 2012 and spoke at many Word of Life Conferences from the 1980s through 2012. Dr. Hubbard, greatly interested in missions, stepped aside from the active pastorate to pursue God’s continual calling. He served on the boards of several large faith missions. His wider speaking ministry had taken him, and his wife, Joy, to over 80 countries as well as to numerous Bible Conferences. In his later years, his health caused him to give up travel and his mission ministry. He returned to his roots, filling the pulpit on a temporary basis for local churches. In Dr. Hubbard’s humility, no church or Bible Conference was too small for him to spread the Word of God. He spent his life reading and studying the Bible and was truly a man of God. We rejoice and are comforted in knowing he is with his Heavenly Father.
