The Dr. Stanley M. Horton
Scholarly Resources Endowment
& The Pillars of the Faith Initiative
The Dr. Stanley M. Horton
To honor Dr. Stanley M. Horton’s (1916-2014) remarkable service to AGTS, to the Assemblies of God and to the greater Pentecostal community over the past seven decades, AGTS has initiated the Dr. Stanley M. Horton Scholarly Resources Endowment Fund, in conjunction with the Pillars of the Faith initiative. We invite you to help us reach our goal of $25,000 for this endowment. For those who contribute $125 or more, AGTS will send you a copy of Dr. Horton’s biography, Stanley M. Horton: Shaper of Pentecostal Theology.
Interest from the endowment will be used to purchase scholarly resources for the Cordas. C. Burnett Library at AGTS—specifically biblical-theological and biblical language resources, as these areas have been so important to Dr. Horton over the years.

About Dr. Stanley M. Horton
Dr. Stanley M. Horton (1916-2014), renowned scholar, prolific writer and worldwide lecturer, is recognized as Pentecostalism’s “premier theologian.” As a child of the Azusa Street Revival and Mission, Horton served, in the words of General Superintendent George O. Wood, as a “bridge linking the Azusa revival to the present day.” As a Harvard graduate in 1945, Horton first taught at Metropolitan Bible Institute until 1948 before coming to Springfield, Missouri where he served as chair of the Bible Department at Central Bible College from 1948-1978. In addition to authoring dozens of books and over 250 articles and reviews, Horton wrote the Assemblies of God Adult Teacher Sunday school curriculum for over 25 years. Since 1991 he has been Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Bible and Theology at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, where he taught from 1978-1991. Even into his 90s, he continued to serve the church.
