These are great men and women of God who have touched our lives and the 
World for Jesus International Fellowship:

Dr. Ernest LaPointe
Pastor Ernie and Pastor Norma came to World for Jesus in 2007.  Since that time he and Sis. Norma became pastors at World for Jesus and Pastor Ernie received the Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree from Promise Christian University in 2008.  In this short time Dr. Ernest also became a licensed short wave radio operator and was asked to serve on the R&D committee for Magnetrain Worldwide Group.  The Lord suddenly called him home in Feb. of 2010 after a brief illness.  He left with us his legacy in the form of a little booklet called "The God Kind of Faith."  

Dr. Lee Wheatley Sr.
Pastor Lee was a bright and shining light at the Pastors Network. He and his wife Bertha are the founders of Joy Christian Center in Duarte, CA.  His testimony is one of healing and miracles.  The Lord took Pastor Lee home on August 26, 2005.  He never met a stranger and his life was dedicated to helping others fine their way and the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour.  

Dr. Edith E. Cerullo
Rev. Edith Cerullo and her husband, Dr. Rudy have been in full time ministry more than 60 years total.  In the early days of the evangelistic movement in the USA she and Dr. Rudy travelled holding tent crusades and revivals all over the east and south.  They had the opportunity to travel to many foreign nations.  For the last 25 years they pastored the Tri-City Assembly of God church in Covina! What a wonderful encourager and blessing she was to the Pastors Network and to the family of God.  Sis. Edith went home to be with the Lord on March 21, 2005

Pastor Mervyn Kuwaye
Pastor Merv and his wife, Belen preached the gospel around the world for 20 years.  They established branches for Jesus is Lord worldwide ministries in Hong Kong, England, Canada, France, Italy, Norway and many other nations.  Together he and Belen pastored Faith in Christ South Bay Church for 10 years.  More than that Bro. Merv was an encourager and a support of World for Jesus International Ministries.  He was born on Oct. 7, 1953 and went home to be with the Lord on June 17, 2002!  

Rev. Melvin Kwan.  Rev. Kwan pastored the Lamb of God Church and Bible School in Honolulu, Hawaii.  He pioneered two churches in the islands and traveled around the world in missionary crusades.  He was well respected and loved by the churches of Hawaii.  He went home to be with the Lord on June 6, 2002.

Rev. Danny Hjertstedt

wpe1.jpg (21764 bytes) Preaching the gospel around the world for 52 years. Bro. Danny came from a family of 7 preachers. He and Sis. Dora traveled preaching revivals 52 weeks of the year.  Even with the news of his illness, he continue to preach the gospel up until the last two weeks of his life.  World for Jesus was honored to have Bro. Danny speak a powerful prophetic message on October 7, 2001.  He went home to be with the Lord on November 7, 2001 at 10:30 p.m.

Dr. Howard Courtney
We met Dr. and Mrs. Courtney through our dear mother in the Lord, Rev. Gladys Church. We asked them if they were every available to come and speak to a small independent church.  They said yes.  And this began our friendship.  Dr. Courtney was a giant in the gospel, a man who love the Lord, who loved pastors, and who loved the ministry.  He and Sis. Courtney served together as a team for more than 60 years.  His advice to us was, "never accept an invitation unless your wife can go along as well."  He believed in teamwork.  He also advised us that, "everything you are seeking for in ministry, every hope, every desire and every dream is all contained in Him."
Dr. Courtney went home to be with the Lord on October 30, 2000.

Dr. Mack Sutherland
Through the ministry of Morris Cerullo we saw Dr. Mack organizing, coordinating, preaching, and ministering in many world conferences, local crusades and on television as the North American Crusade Director for Bro. Cerullo.  In 1985, Dr. Cerullo decided to conduct a city-wide crusade in Los Angeles, CA at the Olympic Auditorium.  We were asked to help enlist pastors of Asian ministries, Spanish ministries and of course the local ministries.  Together Dr. Mack and I visited churches and met ministers.  The outcome: more than 15,000 people packed the auditorium for three nights with people flooding the streets.  They had triple interpretation: English, Spanish and Korean.  From that time on, Dr. Mack and I (Bro. Mike McKinney) became close friends.  In 1997, Dr. Mack came to minister at the World for Jesus Christian Center in Covina and that began the birthing of the greater vision, a world-wide pastor's fellowship.  In 2000, the Lord gave Bro. Mike and Sis. Adelle the organizational plan through and with the assistance of Dr. Mack and Shirley Sutherland.  Dr. Mack agreed to serve on the first Advisory Board of the ministry!  And, then, as his work on earth was accomplished the Lord called him home, on Jan. 3,2001.  He was a man who showed the patience, compassion, and love of God to the pastors and those in ministry!  He had a heart for the pastor of the small church.  A mighty man of God!

Dr. Handel Price
We first heard of Dr. Price when he was serving as the Vice President of Eagle's nest Ministry in Santa Ana.  A powerful, anointed preacher and teacher of the Word, his heritage was sitting under the anointing of the Jeffery Brothers, Evans Roberts, Smith Wigglesworth and other spiritual giants of Wales and England.  In 1983, we were invited to be the guest speakers at the 50th anniversary of the Gospel of Salvation Church in Honolulu, Hawaii.  There at that special service, Dr. Price and his dear friend Dr. C.M. Ward were also on the program.  As we got acquainted with Dr. Handel and Flo Price, immediately we felt the hand of God on our relationship.  Dr. Price was a mentor and friend to the pastor.  He was a trainer and encourager and sometimes a corrector in love.  Even in his latter years, despite many near death experiences both on the field and in the hospital, God would raise him up and off he would go on another crusade, another revival, another special meeting.  Nothing could hold Dr. Price down.  He was booked up a year ahead of time.  But the Lord know, the heart of this mighty man of God and warrior in His kingdom, that nothing would stop him from preaching the gospel, only a divine call from heaven could cause this General in God's kingdom to stop and take a break.  That call came on January 6, 2001.  God called Dr. Price home to his place of Glory!  But his legacy to the Body of Christ is his many books, especially the one entitled, "Speaking to Leaders." 
Rev. Vince McCauley, Ghana, West Africa
Bro. McCauley was a great man of faith.  An orphan from Guyana, he found his way to the Fred Jordan wpe51032.gif (42260 bytes)Missions at the time called Soul Clinic International.  Bro. Fred adopted Vince as his own son in the faith and began to mentor him.  Bro. Vince was sent to Africa as a missionary and ended up on Ghana.  With no money and no real financial backing, Bro. Vince established the Soul Clinic International School which at the time of his death in 1997 was considered the number one private Christian school in the nation.  Today his wife Salwa and his sons carry on his work.  Bro. Vince was a servant of God and a great man of faith!

Fred Jordan, Soul Clinic, Los Angelels
I met Bro. Fred in the late 1960's in Palm Springs, CA.  He invited me to appear on his television program to give my testimony.  Bro. Fred and Sis. Willie although so busy in ministry and with wpe02361.jpg (5190 bytes)wpe17647.jpg (6989 bytes)the home downtown, always had time to pray for and fellowship with the young ministers.  Bro. Fred always hand an encouraging word for me and told me, "when you get your church call me and I'll come and preach for you."  We did and he did.  What a wonderful man of God with so much love and compassion.  He was real!  So is Sis. Willie whom we love very much!

Rev. Gladys Church - Angeles Temple.  
Sis. Gladys was one of Aimee's first women evangelist.  A powerful anointed speaker, Sis. Church held revivals all over the Southern California area in thewpe50844.jpg (5599 bytes) 1930s-1940s.  Later on she pastored the 500 room at Angeles Temple for some 15 years before she retire.  She preached her second to last message in our church before the Lord called her home in 1989 at the age of 91.  She was my mentor when I began my ministry as an evangelist.  Sis. Aimee said, "if I could preach like Gladys Church that would be saying something."
