Ur Video: In Memory of John Stott
1921 - 2011

"The evangelical world has lost one of its greatest spokesmen, and I have lost one of my close personal friends and advisors. I look forward to seeing him again when I go to Heaven." -Billy Graham

I consider it a great privilege to have met Revd John Stott in 1984. We were newly wedded and my husband and I were participating at the London Institute of Contemporary Christianity. His exemplary life of humility made me think that Christlike life can be real and rewarding. Now that he is passed on to glory I feel that there is so much to learn from the legacy of christian literature that he left. His worldview was balanced and his teaching down to earth.

John Stott has been my role model for biblical teaching. I first heard him teach at Urbana 1976. My wife June and I had recently been married and were leading a group of college students from our local church in Lynchburg, Virginia, to Urbana '76. My memory is still quite clear regarding Stott's subject matter (God is a Missionary God) and his succinct use of words. His teaching style inspired me to seek never to waste words and to fill my words with biblical truth and meaning. On a humorous note, I inadevertantly ran into Stott (quite literally) and almost knocked him down in the crowded halls of the conference venue. I did not recognize him at the time but June later pointed out what I had done.
