Earl Wesley Morey Jr. passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 29, 2018, at Sunrise
Assisted Living Fair Oaks in Fairfax, Virginia. Born January 28, 1925 in Baltimore, Maryland, Earl was the son of Earl Wesley Morey Sr. and Ada Brown Morey. He was a graduate of City College High School in Baltimore (1942), McDaniel College (formerly Western Maryland College) with a BA in Philosophy (1945), and Princeton Theological Seminary with a M.Div. in Biblical Theology (1948) and a Ph.D. in Historical Theology (1952).
Ordained in 1948 as a Minister of the Gospel by the United Presbyterian Church, Dr. Earl Morey has served as the senior pastor of three Presbyterian congregations: First United Presbyterian Church of Germantown in Philadelphia, PA (1948-1952); First United Presbyterian Church of Pittsburgh, PA (1952-1960), and St. Giles Presbyterian Church of Richmond, VA (1960-1985). Dr. Morey was a world-renowned Bible teacher and leader in the Charismatic Renewal in the 1970s. In 1974 and 1975, Dr. Morey served as the Director of the World Conference on the Holy Spirit in Jerusalem. In 1981, he established the first YWAM School of Biblical Studies, University of the Nations, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Dr. Morey traveled the world giving seminars at numerous YWAM bases, and Biblical Studies Schools in more than 50 countries have been established. On retiring from the pastorate, Dr. Morey was for eight years the Director, School of Christian Ministries, Christian Assembly (now New Song) in Vienna, Virginia. Even in official “retirement”, he continued to teach Bible at Sandhills Missionary Alliance Church in Pinehurst, NC, and then for a decade at The King’s Chapel in Clifton, VA where as the “Resident Bible Scholar,” he taught weekly in the Sunday service from 2007 until his 92nd year in 2017.
