E. W. Kenyon (18671948) preached his first sermon at nineteen. He pastored several churches in New England and founded the Bethel Bible Institute at Spencer, Massachusetts, which later became the Providence Bible Institute when it was relocated to Providence, Rhode Island. Kenyon served as an evangelist for over twenty years. In 1931, he became a pioneer in Christian radio on the Pacific Coast with his show Kenyons Church of Air, where he earned the moniker "The Faith Builder." He also began the New Covenant Baptist Church in Seattle.
Born again at the age of twelve, Don Gossett (19292014) served the Lord in active ministry for sixty-six years as pastor, worldwide evangelist, missionary, and longtime broadcaster. He apprenticed with many well-known evangelists, including William Freeman, Raymond T. Richey, Jack Coe, and T. L. Osborn.
