Chapter Summary

Dramatic life transformation was the result for many who joined the early Full Gospel-Pentecostal community in New Brunswick, Canada. The life and ministry of Wynn Theodore Stairs serves as a case study of an early Full Gospel-Pentecostal leader in Atlantic Canada. The first Full Gospel-Pentecostal tent meeting held in the St. Stephen area was conducted on 25 July 1926. Earl Jacques brought the tent from Fredericton in an effort to pioneer a new church in the community. Home mission opportunities were not the only outlet for Stairs' pioneering spirit. Although he enjoyed sharing the gospel with others in missions and preaching points in New Brunswick and Maine his primary interest was the promotion of foreign mission opportunities. The development of Stairs' ministry career demonstrates the maturation of the Full-Gospel Pentecostal movement in New Brunswick and the Atlantic Northeast. The Full-Gospel Pentecostal piety expressed by Stairs was direct and personal.
