“We in The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada honour the life and legacy of Dr. George O. Wood. Personally, I will miss George who was a colleague I learned from, valuing his insight and ministry of the Word, and who provided personal counsel and affirmation. We laughed together and shared deeply spiritual moments. I have learned so much sitting at leadership tables with him and will miss him at those tables. Mrs. Wood (Jewel) and their family are in our prayerful thoughts at this time.”
—David Wells, General Superintendent of The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.
Former General Superintendent of Assemblies of God U.S. Dies
We recently received news of the homegoing of George O. Wood. Here is what Doug Clay, current General Superintendent of Assemblies of God U.S., had to say about Dr. Wood.
“George O. Wood’s legacy is that of being a man of the Word. He had tremendous intellect, but never depended on that at the expense of being led by the Spirit. A bridge builder and Pentecostal statesman, he was well respected by Christian leaders of many denominations, as well as the Assemblies of God leadership throughout the world. He had a unique ability to open doors for young people, women, and ethnic minorities by providing them a meaningful seat at the table. That has been a major force behind our growth in each of those areas. His mentorship in my life was invaluable. Each leadership decision he made was always processed through Scripture. He made my love for the Bible even richer. His legal credentials gave him a unique perspective to address cultural issues with biblical clarity. I love you, Chief!”
