The Hal Webb Team
A b o u t


At 15 years of age Hal Webb surrendered his life at a campfire, to be a lifetime evangelist. His pastor organized a team, and all through school Hal was a bold witness for God, in his quartet and evangelistic meetings in Jubilee Hour in Binghamton. NY. At 18 he went into the military, he says for three reasons. His country needed him, he was patriotic, and they came and got him. The draft took him into World War II where God spared his life through the Rhine, the Rhur, the Bulge and many conflicts. War ended and he left for Philippine occupation where for 9 months he directed the GI Gospel Hour, attended by thousands of GI's in Manila, in the Philippines. Discharged he entered Bob Jones University, married his wonderful wife Nell Sue, and continued his promise to God at graduation from BJU in 1950. A trailer became their home and they began a trek of many hundreds of churches across the nation. Hal also served as Evangelist of Youth for Christ International for 15 years plus his team ministry. In 1956 Hal met Theron Babcock who with wife Ruth musically blessed the team for 25 years of constant travel in many revival meetings. Theron, musical artist and writer, is retired but Hal and Sue are still a team after heart attacks. They still hold Sunday meetings and Hal writes sermons and makes broadcasts at age 85. To God be the glory, Hal has kept his promise and is still perhaps the oldest fundamental evangelist still active in evangelism. Thinking of computers that may be why they call him The Original World Wide Webb. Evangelism continued to be his first love until God above called him home. To God be the glory for thousands of churches being blessed and many thousands of souls saved around the world. Again to God be the glory!

The Hal Webb Team Archive is being maintained as a permanent repository for material pertaining to the Hal Webb Team. More importantly, this archive serves to continue the evangelistic work, with Glory to God, trusting God to use this material to save souls and strengthen His people.
