Few people have touched more lives with the Gospel of Christ more than Rex Humbard. A 1999 issue of US News & World Report distinguished him as one of the top 25 “Shapers of the American Century.” Saturday Evening Post wrote, “Putting God on Main Street” has been the goal of this dedicated preacher for more than 60 years. Now, thanks to the electronic media, Rex Humbard’s “Main Street” stretches around the world.”
In the early 70’s the publisher of Time Magazine traveled to Akron, Ohio to interview Rex for a feature article in Time. Following their meetings Mr. Grunwald explained to Rex that he did not know exactly what to call him in the article. Rex was a pastor, a television preacher and evangelist. From this discussion Rex Humbard was first called, by Time Magazine, a “Tele-Evangelist.” The words “Tele-Evangelist” was directly used to describe Rev. Rex Humbard.

Pastor Jack Hayford commented that “Rex Humbard first touched my life when I was in high school and he and his family came to our home church in Oakland, California. During that series of meetings, I was baptized in the Holy Spirit.Beyond that beginning, and over the many years following, Rex Humbard became a model in character and in pace-setting ministry for hosts of pastors who like me remain grateful for him to this day.”
