Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Rev. Dr. Charles Albert Tindley (July 7, 1851, Berlin, Maryland, USA - July 26, 1933) was an American Methodist minister and gospel music composer. Often referred to as "The Prince of Preachers," he educated himself, became a minister and founded one of the largest Methodist congregations serving the African-American community on the East Coast of the United States. The Tindley Temple United Methodist Church in Philadelphia was named for him. Tindley's father was a slave, but his mother was free. Tindley himself was thus considered to be free, but even so he grew up among slaves. After the Civil War, he moved to Philadelphia. He continued his education while working as a church janitor, teaching himself Hebrew and Greek and eventually earning a doctorate. After 25 years, he became the pastor of the same church at which he had been a janitor. Under his leadership, the church grew from 130 to a multiracial congregation of 10,000.show more
