Hugh Halter Joins Northern’s Team

Hugh has been a leading voice in the missional church movement for the last two decades. He has served as a church planter, pastor, and consultant across the United States. His books include The Tangible Kingdom, Flesh, BiVo, and Sacrilege. He specializes in developing content for marketplace ministries with V3.

At Northern, Hugh will coach pastors and train churches for incarnational ministry in the marketplace and the neighborhood. In addition, he will teach Church Planting curriculum to equip local congregations to be missionaries in their context.

Hugh and his wife Cheryl have planted several churches across America. Recently their family moved to Alton, IL. Within a year they were given a 12,000 square foot federal post office, and with the help of family and friends family turned it into “Post Commons,” which the locals call the “living room for Alton.” Under Hugh’s non-profit “Lantern Network,” Hugh facilitates a coffee house, brunch kitchen, events center, whiskey society, and co-working space to birth and nurture small ventures that impact the local community.

The “Post Commons” will become an immersive classroom for Northern students and church planters. Persons interested in training for church planting should contact Mike Moore ( to learn more about upcoming start dates.
