Aimee Semple McPherson's denomination now spans 147 countries. Their site includes a concise biography of "Sister Aimee," more history of the Foursquare church since her death in 1944, and detail on the meaning and mission of the Foursquare doctrine.
A University of Virginia American Studies student compiled this collection of photos and essays on Aimee Semple McPherson. The essays examine Aimee's life in its broad categories (her religion, her relationship with the media, her role as an actress). The site also offers a gallery of photos and features a poem by Upton Sinclair about McPherson's 1926 disappearance.
As part of our 2006 "radio pilgrimage" to the centennial celebration of the Azusa Street Revival, we visited the Pasadena Foursquare Church to which Arlene Sánchez-Walsh belongs. View images of the church and hear some of its members discuss their religious backgrounds, the role Pentecostalism plays in their lives, and the community they've found in this congregation. You can also hear selected conversations on Pentecostalism from other programs.
