Mears, Henrietta C
Dr. Henrietta Mears was one of the great Bible teachers of the 20th Century. As Christian education director at First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood, she built one of the largest Sunday Schools in the world and wrote curriculum that was in such high demand that to publish it, she founded Gospel Light in 1933. Such notable Christian leaders as Richard C. Halverson, Luis Evans, Jr. and Bill Bright were among her students. Dr. Billy Graham has said, “She is certainly one of the greatest Christians I have ever known.” Miss Mears was called home to be with her Lord and Savior on March 20, 1963.
