Seven Ministers Ordained
Herbert W Armstrong   
Church of God

Born: July 31, 1892

Member Since: 1928
Ordained: 1931
Office: Apostle

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

God revealed to me, seven years ago, the need to establish a college - a new kind of collage - in which the future ministers needed for this gigantic worldwide crusade would be properly educated and trained. Ambassador College opened its doors to students October 8, 1947. It, too, started the smallest college in America - just 4 pioneer students, tho it had a faculty of eight professors and teachers. But, as all things of God do, it is GROWING, at the same ratio as the Gospel work! It is no longer the smallest college in America On December 20, 1952, by authority of Jesus Christ, with fasting and prayer and laying on of hands of God's ministers, in congregation assembled in Pasadena, California, upon recommendation of the Board of Trustees of The Radio Church of God, five of our young ministers were fully ordained.
