Pastor Robert Owen believed in giving oneself fully to the service of the Lord. He lived and breathed the good news of Jesus from the coal pit to the pulpit. This scholarship will enable students of pastoral and preaching ministry at Assemblies of God colleges and universities to continue the legacy of Pastor Owen in serving the church.

Pastor Robert Owen

Pastor Owen filled in at the First Presbyterian Church of Irwin (one of many churches for which he led worship services). He was a regular presence at the Norwin Area Men's Prayer Fellowship providing prayers and Bible studies along with accordion and piano accompaniment for the hymns sung by the men. In the charm of his Welsh brogue often was heard his plea that through his words and message to each of us we could say: I heard God speak to me today! 


He was called home to be with Jesus on Monday, November 19, 2012.
