Getting Here

Cecil Hamby grew up in the Appalachian Mountains in a little community called Deep Gap, North Carolina.  As a young boy, he was raised in church and taught by his mother to pray and read the bible every night before bed along with his four brothers and sisters in a modest two bedroom house. 

As a teenager, he began to experiment with drugs and alcohol.  For several years he would be traveling down this road of severe drug addiction, alcoholism and reckless behavior.  Trying  to quit many times, he eventually gave up all hope of ever changing his life.

One day while driving to the local beer store, he, without thinking, turned left on a gravel road. He was headed to the home of a devout believer by the name of John Smith.  He began warring with this notion and was trying to turn around, when John's sons came out to his truck to ask him what was going on.  Tearfully he admitted to them, "I think I need to get saved." Hastily, they took his arms and led him into the house where they could pray for him. But this time, he had to pray for himself the prayer of salvation. In this instant he was completely delivered from drug addiction and alcoholism.  They began to lay hands on him and he received the gift of the Holy Spirit.  It was only four days later the Lord revealed to him his call to preach and sing under the anointing.

Getting his start in evangelism under the ministry of H. Richard Hall, he has been full time in the field for over 27 years. spreading the gospel in over 17 states and both Africa and the Bahamas.  Recently, the Lord has brought him back to his home community to reach the drug addict and the lost.  Many young people have been delivered and set free from addictions there.

He now resides in Deep Gap, North Carolina with his wife of 25 years, Audrey, and his two daughters.
