Rev. Ernest Angley passed away on Friday at the age of 99, according to an announcement shared through his ministry.
“Pastor, evangelist, and author Rev. Ernest Angley has gone to Heaven to be with His Lord and Master at 99,” read a statement on the website of Ernest Angley Ministries. “He touched multitudes of souls worldwide with the pure Word of God confirmed with signs, wonders, miracles, and healings. He truly pleased God in all things.”
The televangelist led Grace Cathedral church in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, in the Cleveland-Akron area for several decades, FOX 8 of Cleveland reported.
At the age of 20, he attended the Church of God Bible Training School in Tennessee and met his wife, Esther Lee – known as “Angel.” She was 49-years-old when she passed away in 1970.
The couple appeared together in tent revivals, auditoriums, and churches throughout the south before moving the ministry to Springfield Township, southeast of Akron, in 1954.
Within a few years, the church had matured from a pop-up tent in a parking lot to a $1 million building that drew thousands of followers a week.
Angley also aired his services on radio until he bought WBNX-55, which has been in operation since 1985.
