ANZA, CA (ANS) -- The Christian world recently lost one of its most unique and gifted Bible teachers and preacher: the Rev. Dick Mills who passed away at his home in Anza, CA on May 25th. He was 90 years old.
Dick grew up in Stockton, California and enlisted in the US Air Force, serving during WWII. After the war he enrolled in L.I.F.E. Bible College and graduated in 1949. In the 1950’s he pastured churches in Saugus and Oceanside, CA, then became an evangelist, eventually preaching to churches throughout the USA and Canada as well as mission work in Central America and Cuba.
In the mid-60s, he began to be in demand as a quest speaker and teacher the world over. Rev. Mills was also known as a prolific writer, authoring books such as “He Spoke and I Was Strengthened”, his daily Devotional in two Volumes, the Greek word studies and the Spirit-filled Life Bible and co-authored with his son, David, “Messiah and the Hebrew Alphabet”.
In the 1970, he was as Adjunct Professor in a Bible School in Anaheim, CA and served for the next two decades as guest lecturer at Christian Colleges and Training Centers throughout the USA and Canada. He was also an occasionally guest on TBN and the 700 Club.
Over the course of a lifetime, he completed a vast personal library of Bible translations, commentaries, and Bible dictionaries, books from antiquity, lexicons, and devotional books.
The Body of Christ has lost a powerful prophet of God who spent his life seeking the Lord and serving Him in a pure and upright way. He will be missed by a vast number of people worldwide to whom he ministered personally in his 62 years of active traveling. He is greatly loved by many people, as the volume of expressions of appreciation currently coming in attest to. His devotion to the Lord and to people has been a hallmark of his life for many decades.
