As an ordained elder of the Church of the Nazarene, Moody Johnson hart served as pastor to churches in Ohio and Michigan before going to Olivet Nazarene College to become professor of Bible there. He was faculty sponsor of the ministerial fellowship at Olivet. He was often featured as guest speaker at various functions. A memorial has been established in his honor at Olivet Nazarene College. He was a member of the Wesleyan Theological Society as well as of the Evangelical Theological Society (since 1969).
Fred Carl Kuehner
At the time his labors were ended early last year, Fred Kuehner (born in 1912) had been a professor at the Theological Seminary of the Reformed Episcopal Church, Philadelphia, for a quarter of a century, fifteen years of which he served as dean (chief administrator) of the school. He was visiting lecturer at Westminster Theological Seminary for a number of years as well.
Broadly trained in his field (Reformed Episcopal, Westminster, and Eastern Baptist Seminaries; University of Pennsylvania; and Dropsie College), as professor of Biblical languages Kuehner taught a far wider range of courses than is usual. But he was an unusually gifted teacher, as hundreds of alumni who call him blessed will readily testify.
Published writings (mostly articles, contributions to symposia, and book reviews) were limited, but most widely circulated was his monograph, “Heaven and Hell,” an insert in Christianity Today. Yet his personal impact on lives was extensive through pulpit and classroom alike and was supplemented by a number of years of editorial work with the American Sunday-School Union.
Although he was already known to fellow members of the Evangelical Theological Society, he also participated actively in committee work for both the New and Old Testament portions of the

New International Version. That ministry will long serve to fix fond personal memory of Fred Kuehner in the minds of many of his colleagues.
