Paul the Apostle

First and foremost amongst Pentecostal Pioneers must stand Paul, once a persecutor of Christ, then a proclaimer of Christ. Once he burnt with indignation against the Blood bought Church but after conversion, commissioning, consecration and crushing he planted it, preached to it and protected it. He planted the very first Pentecostal churches across the Greek, Roman and Gentile world. This is his story. New Article


Apostle Paul

T.B. Barratt

A Pioneer of Pentecost in Europe, especially Norway, Sweden, Britain, Switzerland and even India. Although born in England he was raised and ministered in Norway. After much seeking of God in prayer and fasting he recieved a mighty baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire in New York city. He then returned to Norway where revival broke out.


T.B. Barratt

A.A. Boddy

His church was where the Pentecostal Revival in Britain began. He was an Anglican minister most of his life with a strong influence on his life from the Keswick Convention. His annual Sunderland convention and his publication of  'Confidence' the first Pentecostal magazine, paved the way for a move of God in the land.


A.A. Boddy

Cecil Polhill

Stirred under Moody's ministry he was saved and then felt the call of God to go as a missionary. He served with C.T.Studd in CIM under the leadership of Hudson Taylor. He founded the first Pentecostal Mission society and financed much of the early Pentecostal work in Britain.


Cecil Polhill

Thomas Myerscough

Above all others he is the forgotten Pentecostal Pioneer.  A Bible teacher of great quality who taught and prepared in his Bible School some of the main pioneers who effected the land as well as a number of other countries.


Thomas Myerscough

Mrs Eleanor Crisp

Raised up off a sick bed to serve God. She was Principal of  the first Pentecostal Bible School for women, which she ran until her death. She was often found ministering beside Boddy, Polhill, Wigglesworth and others. 


Mrs Crisp

Arthur Booth-Clibborn

This Irish Quaker was husband to William Booth's oldest firebrand daughter Katie. This six foot beared patriach was a mature influence upon the young Pentecostal Movement. He was seasoned, scarred but pure and expectant.


Arthur Booth-Clibborn

Robert A. Brown

Born, reared and saved in Enniskillen Northern Ireland, he planted and established a strong Pentecostal church in New York city. It became the biggest of AoG's five thousand churches and exceeded all in giving to world missions. He was undoubtedly one of the great moulding influence's upon the AG. He was renowned as a sole winner as well as a faithful pastor. Many of the British and Irish Pioneers ministered in his pulpit in New York especially Wigglesworth.


Robert A. Brown

W.F.P. Burton

The 'Tramp Preacher' as he loved to be known. He led the way in pioneering a mission to Congo in Africa. In his life time over two thousand churches were planted through a Gospel confirmed with mighty signs and wonders.


W.F.P. Burton

Smith Wigglesworth

Today most people have built his sepulchre because of his miracles, but few follow his example. A humble man, who did not lay up riches on earth, had no mailing list, wrote no books, took no photographs but loved the Word of God.


Smith Wigglesworth

James Salter

Fellow labourer with Burton and son-in-law of Wigglesworth yet a man of God in his own right. As a missionary he was raised up off his death bed six times. His missionary labours as a missionary in Congo as well as his missionary exhortations when traveling in Britain or else where in the world with Wigglesworth were compelling.


James Salter

Stephen Jeffreys

A fiery Evangelist in every sense. He broke the ground across Britain in Pioneering churches both for Elim and AOG. Mighty miracles confirmed his powerful rugged preaching and he could probably be said to have had the greatest healing ministry of any of these Pentecostal Evangelists.


Stephen Jeffreys

George Jeffreys

He pioneered and raised up the Elim Alliance movement. He proclaimed a clear four square Pentecostal message in power, holding conventions across the UK of 10,000 people and baptizing 400 in a single service at the end of evangelistic campaigns.


George Jeffreys

D.P. Williams

D.P. Williams was converted through the ministry of Evan Roberts during the Revival of 1904. He was greatly used of God in raising up the Apostolic Church of Great Britain and Ireland. He had a real vision to establish the ministries of Apostle and prophet back to the church. This work would eventually belt the globe.


D.P. Williams

W.J. Williams

Brother of DP Williams and also early pioneer amongst the Apostolic churches. He was strongly used of the Lord in prophesy and was known amongst theApostolic's as their formost Prophet. Joined to this was a beautiful pastoral heart and ministry.


W.J. Williams

Stanley Frodsham

It was in the home of A.A. Boddy in 1908 that he recived his baptism in the Holy Spirit (the very same place and blessing as Wigglesworth). He moved to America and became the editor of the Evangel for the AoG. His writing had national and international effect. In his latter days he arose with a prophetic warning to the Pentecostal and Charasmatic movements.


Stanley Frodsham

Tom Mercy

'Mercy by name mercy by nature.' Tom Mercy was Pastor of Crosskeys Pentecostal Assembly in the South of Wales. During his pastorate some 40-50 new churches were pioneered from this one. He was the foremost leaders of AoG in Wales and and was known for his godly leadership.


Tom Mercy

Andrew Turnbull

Andrew Turnbull was the founder and Pastor of the Burning Bush Pentecostal Assembly in Glasgow city. He acted as Scottish Apostle for the Apostolic Churches of Great Britain and Ireland. Through his ministry young preachers were sent forth across Scottland and new churches were pioneered everywhere he went.


Andrew Turnbull

J. Nelson Parr

Parr became both chairman and secretary of the newly formed AOG as well as the Editor of the new paper called Redemption Tidings. He came to be considered one of their finest preachers and organisers. He also Pastored one of the biggest Pentecostal churches in Britain.


J. Nelson Parr

Howard Carter

In a prison cell during the 1st World War he studied and forged out a Scriptural doctrine of the nine distinct supernatural gifts of the Holy Ghost. He raised up a Bible School in England from which he sent forth students, then he himself set out to travel the world teaching the Word of God. 


Howard Carter

Donald Gee

A balanced Teacher of the Word who brought much wisdom to the Pentecostal Movement at a vital stage through his teaching and writing. He travelled extensively ministering across the world and also became the formost historian of this revival.


Donald Gee

John Carter

John Carter was born in Birmingham, England in 1893. Amazingly 31 years later, in 1924, he was part of the formation of the Assemblies of God in the very same area and continued to his death to be an integral part of this movement. He was used of God as an evangelist, a pastor, a church planter, a teacher and in a host of other roles.


John Carter

Edward Jeffreys

The Son of Stephen Jeffreys. He was used as a tent Evangelist,  his message was confirmed with mighty signs and wonders following the preaching. he was certainly one of the most powerfully used of the young evangelists of his day. This was Divine Visitation, not successful evangelism. Surprisingly he finished his days as an Anglican minister.


Edward Jeffreys

Harold Horton

As a backsliden Methodist preacher he was healed, restored and baptised in the Holy Spirit under Wigglesworth's ministry. His greatest published work was the writing of  'Gifts of the Spirit' the first book of its kind from a Pentecostal perspective. He contended against man's intellect taking the place of Spirit led Bible based leadership of the Church. His teaching and writings held international influence,


Harold Horton

Douglas Scott

Pioneer Missionary to France, where he established and carried the work forth with Apostolic power. He had overwhelming success in other Catholic countries like Belguim. He pioneered NT churches through a truly Apostolic ministry confirmed with signs following. He was Gods Apostle to France.


Douglas Scott

James McKeown

This Scots-Irishman was a Pioneer Missionary to Ghana and West Africa. He raised up preachers and leaders who planted over 3000 churches in 50 years across West Africa becoming the fastest growing Church in the region. Humility was his great mark and conformity to Christ his single goal.


James McKeown

B.H. Clendennen

The call to Restore the Message of Pentecost came to B.H. Clendennen in 1956 when he was first planting a church in Beaumont Texas. In those days the Pentecostal Movement was experiencing the great Healing Revival in America and across the world.  Evangelistic preaching in tents, the healing of sick bodies and an expectation of reaching the nations before Christ came marked it. Since then a great and terrible decline has come to this Pentecostal Revival. It still speaks in tongues, raises it's hands and talks about Revival, but something fundamental is wrong. Generally speaking there has been a departure from Christ, the Word of God, holiness and death to self. Many great marks of the Movement at the beginning of the century had disappeared by the end of the century. The School of Christ has sent students into 130 nations over the past 13 years Forging a Vessel of Recovery
