After welcoming listeners and viewers to the program every week for more than 40 years, Pastor Harold Salem passed away on December 18 at the age of 99.

Christian Worship Hour President Bill Edwards says Salem had a singular focus for his entire ministry.

"His life's passion was to show people the way to Jesus Christ," shares Edwards, adding that Pastor Salem was successful at that because he was gifted at interacting with people and had a way of communicating God's Word "in a really extraordinary manner."

Edwards describes Salem as the most loving person he has ever known. He remembers him as kind and generous and as a man who "always had time and energy for everybody."

Salem: "That's all God wants, is he wants his followers and he wants his prophets and his pastors to be straight-shooters. Tell it like it is."

Edwards says the man may be with his Savior, but the ministry will continue on American Family Radio and around the world.

“The Christian Worship Hour ministry will continue," the president asserts. "We have been planning this for some time. Our pastor would have celebrated his 100th birthday this coming June, so we've known it was going to happen at some time."

Salem: "I'm at 99 and getting older every day and more decrepit. But I'm happy. I'm happy in the Lord."

Pastor Salem's funeral, which occurred on Wednesday, can be viewed on the ministry's Facebook page.
