The writing & encouragement ministry of Hugh Poland

"Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You."

Psalm 143:8a

Ever get tired of running the rat race and just want your world to slow down?  Ever feel like you need to reload your personal life with something more powerful than the world throws at you?  God calls us to "steal away" to Him, so we can find our strength in Him alone.   

Steal Away is the writing and encouragement ministry of worship leader and author Hugh Poland.  Mark 1:35 says "Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus left the house, and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed."  If Jesus needed to "steal away" from the world and be renewed by His Heavenly Father, we need it even more. 

Hugh Poland has more than 20 years experience as a worship leader and staff member in Texas churches, helping people learn to steal away and make time for God in their lives.  He is available to speak or lead worship at your retreat or event.  From Men's Ministries to sports teams to worship-leading clinics, it's pretty easy to book Hugh for an event.  Email Hugh
