Aimee Semple McPherson (1890-1944)
Aimee Semple McPherson
The celebrated evangelist and faith healer Aimee (Kennedy) McPherson was born on a farm near Ingersoll, Ontario. Daughter of a Methodist farmer and a Salvation Army worker, she led revivalist meetings in Ontario in 1915-16. She barnstormed the United States, drawing large crowds in tents, concert halls and sports arenas. Capitalizing on her vast popularity she founded the Church of the Foursquare Gospel and built the Angelus Temple in Los Angeles in 1923. Sister Aimee preached her message of Christian love daily in the temple's 5000 seat auditorium and over its radio station. She staged morality plays, healed countless invalids, and oversaw social relief programs. Although scandals and financial troubles beset McPherson at the height of her fame, the Foursquare Gospel Church flourished. It now operates worldwide.
