Hugh Theriault: Missions Pastor
As a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ for more than three decades, Hugh felt his call for the Great Commission as soon as he got saved on February 28, 1988. Hugh graduated from Laval University in Quebec City, Canada with a Bachelor's degree in Agronomy - Crop Science in 1990. He then worked as an agronomist in the seed’s industry for almost 28 years in research and development, seed production, sales management, and technical service to farmers. He left his career in agriculture in 2018 and attended Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta, California where he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Biblical Studies. He then served the Lord in Israel with Calvary Chapel Tel Aviv and Tiferet Yeshua Messianic Church. He was involved in their Soup Kitchen Ministry ministering to the poor, homeless, prostitutes, and drug/alcohol addicted Jewish people; evangelized on the streets and in the parks of Tel Aviv, shared God’s love with the people of Israel, and proclaimed Yeshua is Messiah, God’s promise to Israel.
He also served as a pastoral intern at Calvary Chapel Emmett, Idaho. He taught the word of God at church services and daily devotionals at Calvary Christian Academy. He was also a substitute teacher for Christian Education Release Time Ministry (a ministry supported by the Gem County Ministry Association offering Christian classes to high school students at Emmett High School). He is the founder of The Seed Of Truth Ministries, a French outreach ministry of Bible teaching, evangelism, and Bible Prophecy teaching. French is the official language in 29 countries in the world which makes it the second most-used official language after English. About 300 million people in the world speak French showing that it is a big mission field. Hugh is married to Valerie, a native Idahoan. He has one adult son and daughter-in-law who live in Quebec, Canada; and a step-daughter, son-in-law and 2 grand-daughters who live in Ontario, Canada. He is currently serving as the Missions Pastor at Golgotha Fellowship in Nampa, Idaho.
