Chapter Summary

This chapter traces the life and work of those two Canadian sisters: Zelma Argue and Beulah Argue Smith, who traveled widely in evangelistic crusades on both sides of the Canada-US border and served in local churches in both countries. Based on the work of the Argue sisters as portrayed in the pages of The Pentecostal Testimony, between 1920 and 1990, the chapter considers the gendered aspects of the Argue sisters' ministries, exploring how their lives reflected themes in the larger story of North American Pentecostal women during the first half of the twentieth century. The literature on Canadian women in the church has grown significantly in recent years. As the daughters of A.H. Argue, Zelma and Beulah were well connected to people with power and authority in Canadian Pentecostal circles.
