Jack G. Coe was one of the great healing evangelists of the twentieth century. He had the world's largest tent, preached on more than 100 radio stations and published the Herald of Healing magazine that reached 350,000 homes. Many outstanding miracles accompanied his ministry.
Coe started his work in the Assemblies of God, but reached the height of his popularity as an independent evangelist. He founded and pastored the Dallas Revival Center, and opened a faith healing home and a large orphanage in North Texas. Coe's methods, though successful, were quite controversial. Once he was arrested and then acquitted for practicing medicine without a licence.
In 1956 Coe was stricken with polio and died suddenly at the age of 38.
