When we first met Bro. Hatch in Aug. 2002, our church was going through a rough time, and we will never forget the feeling we had when we opened the doors of the auditorium. It was like a breath of fresh air! You could just sense the change in the spirit of the room. From that time forward we have heard Bro. Hatch preach & sing at Baptist churches from Ringgold, TX to Nocona, TX to LaGrange, TX to Carrollton, TX and back at our church in Bowie, TX on numerous occasions. Every single time, it's the same... it's almost as if he brings the Holy Spirit with him in his brief case! We all know that that's not the case, but it is amazing that in every venue, you feel the presence of the Lord when he speaks and sings. We would say that that comes from his clean living and his willingness to live for the Lord in every detail of his life. We count it a joy and honor to call him "friend". One lady at our church has said his music is like "God wrapping His arms around you." We would say that that just about sums it up!
