Dr. R. C. Sproul is the co-pastor of St. Andrews Chapel in Sanford, FL. He is an ordained minister of the Presbyterian Church. Although he is a Calvinist, he has much to teach us. He is a real Bible scholar and and gifted teacher/preacher.
This Dr. R. C. Sproul is not our own Dr. O. E. Sproul.
I have a memory of Dr. O. E. Sproul but for the life of me, I could not remember his first name. If you want to known anything in particular about our church and the history of our church ask Dr. Vinson Synan. That's what I did. Here is Dr. Synan's response:
"His name was O.E. Sproul and he was the first Emcee for Oral Roberts first tent crusades.
"He was a mighty preacher and did pastor Evangelistic Centre in Toronto when it had 1500 members and was the largest Evangelical church in Canada.
"My dad (Bishop J. A. Synan) held a revival for him with 400 in the prayer rooms seeking God at the end of each service."
Dr. Lonnie Rex tells me that his father, the Rev. Dr. Robert L. Rex, followed Dr. O. E Sproul and pastor there for four years. Lonnie told me that the acoustics were so great that you did not need a microphone or a sound system like we have in most of our churches. According to Lonnie Rex,
Evangelistic Centre was the only church in Canada that broadcast their Sunday morning worship services over the Canada Radio Stations.
