Hunter Coleman likes to quote St. Francis who once said, “Preach often and use words as necessary.” Coleman, who retired as pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Highlands in 2007, once preached some of the most meaningful sermons in the area, according to his former parishioners. Today, he still preaches beautiful sermons, but without words, using his camera.
Coleman’s career as pastor with a camera began to take shape in 2000, seven years before he retired.
“My wife Trudie, who could always see ahead better than I could, said to me one day, ‘Hunter, you need a hobby. The church has been your entire life. You need to have something to do when you retire.’”
