Sumner Wemp, at the age of 17, having never held a Bible nor heard “Jesus loves me, this I know…” was invited to church by Gene Gaskins. He went, heard the gospel for the first time, and after three weeks, accepted Christ. And he never got over it.
After college and seminary, he enjoyed 13 wonderful and fruitful years of pastoring. In 1952 he wrote the first of 25 gospel tracts and founded New Life Tract Society. Millions of his tracts have been printed and given away. All the profits he received from his books and tapes went to missions.
He served 8 wonderful years at Moody Bible Institute as Chairman of Evangelism, Pastor of Theology and Director of Practical Christian Work. Then he became president of Southeastern Bible College. After that he served with Dr. Jerry Falwell as Vice President of Spiritual Affairs at Liberty University for 17 years.
