Eventually, her ministry was booming and she was being called to many places to lead revival/evangelistic meetings. She then moved to Los Angeles, which in due time built the church now called Angelus Temple. Aimee continued in her evangelistic mission and continued to preach all over the world. She had even set up a radio broadcasting and a magazine that she ministered to people through. All in all, Aimee was one of the most prominent female leaders of the Christian church. She was used mightily by God and really had the heart to reach all of the world for Jesus Christ. Through her obedience to the Lord, she established the Foursquare denomination which has always had a missional heart. Through the denomination that she established a bible college was also established and continue to equip leaders for the ministry. Aimee Semple McPherson was by no means a perfect person, she had her faults, but one thing is that she was an obedient follower of Christ. Aimee loved the Lord and wanted to share that love with everyone. She had experienced the power of the Holy Spirit and knew that it was available to everyone. I can say that Aimee may have been one of the most influential female leaders from the 1900’s. Her obedience and love for the Lord had a tremendous impact on the world and the church, that we still see today!
