Walter Lewis Wilson
Walter L. Wilson was born May 27, 1881, in Aurora, Indiana,
son of a Methodist minister. He was "the preacher" whenever
neighborhood children played church, and later held evangel-
istic street meetings at the age of 16. After medical train-
ing, he began practice as a physician in Webb City, Missouri,
in 1904. Everywhere he went, he told people how Jesus Christ
could transform their lives. Soul-winning characterized his
life, and he used every possible tool to accomplish it.
A pioneer in radio, he initiated his own program in
1924. He founded and for 40 years pastored Calvary Bible
Church in Kansas City; founded and served as president of
present-day Calvary Bible College; wrote 22 books; and trav-
eled widely as a conference speaker.
He died May 24, 1969, but his heart pulse lives on.
"The blessed privilege of winning souls for Christ is most
interesting, profitable, and eternally blessed."
