Dr. Stanley M. Horton Scholarly Resources Endowment
|Dr. Stanley M. Horton, 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 serves, in the words of AG General Superintendent George O. Wood, as a “bridge linking the Azusa revival to the present day.”
To honor Dr. Stanley M. Horton’s remarkable service to AGTS, the AG and the greater Pentecostal community over the past 70 years, AGTS is initiating the Dr. Stanley M. Horton Scholarly Resources Endowment Fund in conjunction with the Pillars of the Faith initiative.
As a 1945 Harvard graduate, Horton first taught at Metropolitan Bible Institute before coming to Springfield, where he served as chair of the Bible Department at Central Bible College from 1948 to 1978. He taught at AGTS from 1978 to 1991 and is currently Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Bible and Theology. In addition to authoring dozens of books and more than 250 articles and reviews, Horton wrote the AG Adult Teacher Sunday-school curriculum for over 25 years. Even now, in his 90s, he continues to teach, write and consult.
As a Pillars of the Faith honoree, Dr. Horton will be acknowledged prominently on a pillar outside the AGTS Prayer Chapel.
Interest from the endowment will be used to purchase biblical-theology and biblical-language resources for the AGTS library.
You are invited to contribute toward the $25,000 needed to establish Dr. Horton’s endowment. To those giving $125 or more, AGTS will send a copy of the biography Stanley M. Horton: Shaper of Pentecostal Theology by Dr.Lois Olena, AGTS visiting professor of practical theology and Jewish studies.
