C M Ward

C M Ward was a pastor, evangelist, and radio broadcaster.

Ward graduated from Central Bible Institute (now Central Bible College) in 1929, and went to Eastern Canada to take up pastoral duties. He married Dorothy Hymes--a union that lasted 67 years. Later he entered the evangelistic field. In 1945, he went to the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Bakersfield, California, where he served as pastor for 9 years.

He used radio extensively while in the pastorate in Bakersfield, which later made him a unanimous choice to be appointed as radio speaker for the Assemblies of God. In December 1953, Revivaltime went on the ABC network with Ward as its speaker. Within a year, Ward's dynamic ministry caused the broadcast to be given major ratings by ABC officials, who listed it as the top religious program in many parts of the country. Over the next 25 years, Ward preached more than 1,300 weekly radio broadcasts on over 650 stations.

He also published the radio sermons in annual volumes, 23 hardback volumes in all, as well as numerous other books and over 250 booklets. More than 2 million copies of his popular "Revivaltime Miniature" series were distributed with testimonies from men such as the late Colonel Sanders, Dr. Wernher von Braun, Colonel Frank Borman, and J. C. Penney.

In 1973, Ward moved to the West Coast to take the appointment of president of Bethany Bible College (now Bethany University), continuing to be Revivaltime speaker until 1978, when he retired from the radio broadcast. His autobiography, The C. M. Ward Story , was published in 1976. Ward received more than 50 awards, including being Central Bible College alumnus of the year in 1961. He received an honorary doctorate from Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington. He also was named to the national Religious Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 1993.

Among Ward's noted converts was the Evangelist R W Schambach. Brother Ward went to be with Jesus on July 12, 1996.
