James A. Forbes (1973)

James A. Forbes delivers a sermon at the Appalachian Preaching Mission (APM) on Tuesday, February 12, 1973 in Johnson City, Tennessee. Forbes, a Pentecostal minister, preaches that the power of the Holy Spirit is available to Christians of other denominations and that each person's experience with the Spirit is different.

Forbes has served as an instructor at Virginia Union School of Theology in Richmond and as pastor of the Riverside Church in New York City.

I Corinthians 12:11 is read before and referenced during the sermon.
