2019 Camp Schedule: July 19-July 28th

Rev. Victor Hamilton, Evangelist coming to Douglas Camp in 2019

Victor Hamilton was professor of Old Testament studies at Asbury College (now Asbury University) for 36 years, from 1971 until 2007. Upon retiring, Asbury appointed him as a scholar-in-residence at the University from 2007- 2012, He has a BA from Houghton College in New York State (1963); a BD and ThM from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky (1966;1967); and an MA and PhD in Mediterranean Studies from Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts (1969; 1971). While Vic was in graduate studies at Brandeis he served as the student pastor of the former Taft Memorial United Methodist Church in Uxbridge and the Millville United Methodist Church in Millville (1967-1971).

 

Vic has written four books, Handbook on the Pentateuch (Baker Academic, 1982, revised 2005); The Book of Genesis, New International Commentary on the Old Testament, two volumes (Eerdmans, 1990; 1995); Handbook on the Historical Books (Baker Academic, 2002); and Exodus: An Exegetical Commentary (Baker Academic, 2011).

 

He served on the translation team for two modern Bible versions, the New King James version (NKJV) which Thomas Nelson produced in 1982, and the New Living Translation (NLT) which Tyndale House published in 1996 and 2004 (second edition).

 

Vic has had the privilege to lecture and preach at a number of other college campuses, as well as speak in churches, retreats, pastorsseminars, family conferences, camp meetings, and overseas in Korea, Japan Jamaica,  China (Beijing), and most recently in Moscow, Russia. Among his highest joys has been the opportunity to preach over a hundred times in the chapel service in Hughes Auditorium  at Asbury University.  For the last 35 years he has preached (through an interpreter) one Sunday a month at the Lexington Chinese Christian Church. 

 

Vic and his wife Shirley have been married for 53 years, and have four married children and thirteen grandchildren. Both Vic and Shirley were born and raised  in Toronto, Ontario, and have dual citizenship, Canadian and American. Vic is ordained in the Wesleyan Church (Central Canada District). They have been attending the Wilmore Free Methodist Church for approximately 14 years.

Song Leader Jim Chabot

Jim Chabot is a uniquely gifted man. Designer and builder of quality homes, he is doubly talented; for he also applies a high degree of artistic craftsmanship to his real calling: a rich music ministry that has taken him from local church worship leadership platforms to a variety of musical venues throughout the New England area and beyond. 

 
A great voice, married to soul-stirring, spirit-lifting arrangements of inspiring songs: this is the blueprint for the distinctively-Chabot musical architecture. To hear Jim sing is to experience spiritual blessing and challenge, as he interprets carefully-selected lyrics and melodies from the heart, building upon the foundation of a deeply-rooted faith.
