Paul Rader 1879-1938 American evangelist and pastor. Paul Rader was born in Denver, Colorado. The son of a Methodist minister, he was converted to Christ as a boy and became a soloist in his fa- ther's meetings. He was educated in the University of Denver, the University of Colorado, and did postgraduate study at Harvard.         During this time, in college, he drifted into liber- alism and entered a business partnership. While walking near New York City's Times Square, God spoke to him through an illuminated sign. He rented a room nearby and fell on his face before the Lord, and his life was changed. He left his business and entered the ministry. His pastorates included Congregational Church in Boston, Christian and Missionary Al- liance Tabernacle in Pittsburgh (1912-15), Moody Memorial Church in Chicago (1915-21), Chicago Gospel Tabernacle (1922- 33), and Gospel Temple in Fort Wayne, Indiana (1936-37).         He served as president of the Christian and Mission- ary Alliance from 1921 to 1923. His radio broadcasts were heard on various Chicago stations as well as the CBS network. He was instrumental in sending scores of missionaries to countries all over the world, in addition to influencing hun- dreds of young men to enter the ministry.
