Schedule of Centennial Events, 1998

International Penetecostal Holiness Church


    Our Church celebrated 100 years of existence at the Twenty-seventh General Council June 9 - June 14,1998.

We were elated and honored to have Bishop James E. Leggett of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church (IPHC), along with Dr. Vinson Synan and Dr. Harold Hunter in attendance at our celebration.

We have a shared history with the IPHC. The IPHC held 2 celebrations in 1998. Bishop Fuller gave remarks at the 2nd celebration held in North Carolina in November, 1998. You will find pictures from our celebration and the IPHC's celebration on their web site. Be sure to browse the links on their site to understand the details of our shared history.

As part of our Centennial Celebration a Resource Package was developed by the Department of Religious Education. The packet also outlined Centennial Events for the year. Additionally, Bishop Frazier asked the entire church to fast and pray for 90 days starting in March. The Lord moved mightily in our midst during this time of devotion.

Continuing the celebration of our church history, the Southwest Ohio District buried a Time Capsule in Detroit, Michigan on Saturday October 23, 1999 during the Annual Convention. The Time Capsule Committee worked dilegently all year, climaxing at the Dedication Ceremony. All of our Bishops were on hand to throw the first Ceremonial shovels of dirt. The Time Capsule will be opened in the year 2024.
