Dwayne has had the privilege of pastoring at Hughson Street Baptist Church, downtown Hamilton, since January 1, 1995. God has a heart for the city. The city is alive with various cultures, languages and people groups. The poor live in the heart of the city. God has called His people to love the city. When Dwayne looks out his backyard he sees the city and hears God's voice calling him to love the people in the city.
