I graduated from Central High School in Springfield, Missouri, at the age of 17 in June of 1954. It was a huge school with over 3, 000 students, the only high school, in fact, in the city. That fall I enroled at Central Bible Institute on the north end of town. To help pay the tuition costs (no board and room as I stayed at home with my folks just three blocks north of the campus) I got a job with a local radio station and also one at the Assemblies of God headquarters. It paid a whopping buck an hour. The radio job paid far better, but at headquarters I got to meet and know most of the “honchos” of the Assemblies of God, including Thomas F. Zimmerman, who later became the General Superintendent of the fellowship and hired me to speak on Revivaltime (the 600 station radio network program) in late 1978. In ’54, the headquarters were scattered all over the north end of town. The main offices were in an old, old structure on Pacific St. It still stands, although it’s shuttered down and condemned. (That’s a shame, I think, because it could bought for a song, renovated (for a lot of money unfortunately and turned into the Assemblies of God museum – but I’m about the only person who’s ever been interested in that project.) The printing plant, the Gospel Publishing House, stood several blocks away on North Boonville Avenue. It’s one of the largest publishing outfits in the nation even now. Then there were a number of other smaller buildings that housed various and sundry offices. In the early 60’s, the main headquarters building was erected on Boonville Avenue connected directly to the Publishing House structure. It stands four stories high, but the printing plant is six stories and is connected by an across-the-street overhead to a massive distribution center. So the Assemblies of God headquarters covers two city blocks (plus some other buildings nearby) and employs about 1200 people.

In 1977, Darlene, the kids and I moved back to Springfield from Sandusky, Ohio, where we had opened a new church, Calvary Temple. I was hired as the radio/TV director for the Assemblies and a year or so later invited to be the speaker on Revivaltime, a post I had the privilege of filling for the next 17 years (although the last nine of them I was pastoring here in Ft. Myers and commuting). Then 14 years ago, at one of our bi-annual General Councils, I was elected as an Executive Presbyter to represent Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and North and South Carolina. There are 17 of us on that board, six of whom are permanent residents of Springfield and fill the offices of General Superintendent, Assistant General Superintendent, Executive Secretary, Executive Treasurer, Executive Director of World Missions and Executive Director of Home Missions. We meet every other month for two or three day meetings. The committee really serves as the Board of Directors for the entire Assemblies of God.
