Dr. Richard A. Harris with the Lord

Longtime ACCC executive committee member and past ACCC president Dr. Richard Harris went to be with the Lord this past Thursday. His obituary can be read here; details for visitation and funeral service are:

  • Visitation: 7:00 – 9:00 PM, Fri. Jan. 22, at Naugle Funeral & Cremation Service, 135 W. Pumping Station Rd., Quakertown.
  • Funeral Service: 11:00 AM, Sat. Jan. 23, at Bethel Baptist Church, 754 E. Rockhill Rd., Sellersville, viewing at 10:00 AM. Burial is private. **MASKS REQUIRED, CURRENT SAFETY GUIDELINES WILL BE OBSERVED**

Dr. Harris was the primary force behind our current purpose statement. He was a faithful advocate of biblical fundamentalism, urging the Council to make its voice and position known through numerous efforts and outlets. He urged forthright communication between fundamentalists without hidden agendas, seeking for unity among them and the purity of the Church. This dual emphasis is wonderfully expressed in his pamphlet, “A Plea for Christian Statesmanship.”

Give thanks to God for Dr. Harris, and ask the Lord to comfort his wife and family and raise up faithful laborers like him.
