Church of the Week: Asbury College Auditorium

In the years prior to my brother Larry's 1977 graduation from Asbury College (now Asbury University), I had occasion several times to visit him there and attend chapel services (held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10 a.m.) in Hughes Auditorium (dedicated in 1929).

It is a beautiful auditorium in the best traditions of Methodism:dark wood paneling, cream-colored plaster walls with a balcony on three sides, lovely stained glass windows, a fine pipe organ. As I recall, the acoustics are wonderful, and many of the finest preachers in history have spoken here. Hughes Auditorium was also the site of the student revival that began on February 3, 1970 and lasted for 144 uninterrupted hours.
