He never held national office, yet few people have impacted the Pentecostal Church of God more than this quiet, godly leader.
He began his ministry with the Assemblies of God, serving as District Superintendent of the Illinois District of that movement. He pioneered two churches simultaneously in Granite City, Illinois, and when he changed his credentials to the Pentecostal Church of God, he served as pastor of Trinity Tabernacle Pentecostal Church of God in Madison, Illinois.
He served many years as District Presbyter of that district, and was thus a member of the General Board where his quiet voice of moderations and wisdom received great respect.
He was author of two books:Special Occasion Helps, that won the “Book of the Year” award from Baker Book House, and Basic Homiletical Studies, published by Messenger Publishing. Both these books have gone through numerous reprintings.
His popular column in The Pentecostal Messenger, “Bible Light on the Subject,” was reprinted as a book (available here).
