  • James Ahlemann Entered The Ministry At The Age Of
    16
  • James Ahlemann was born on June 30, 1945 in
    Columbus, Indiana. He and his family resided at
    numerous places that include Columbus, Indiana,
    New Albany, Indiana and Terra Haute, Indiana. His
    grandfather and father were pastors and as he was
    growing up, he shifted many times because his
    father accepted a wide range of pastoral
    assignments in churches. They moved to Lexington,
    Kentucky, Orlando, Florida, Norfolk, Virginia and
    Blytheville, Arkansas and he completed his high
    school education from Blytheville High School in
    1963. He entered the ministry and began to have
    opportunities to speak in churches in Virginia at
    the age of 16. During his senior year of high
    school, he and his brother conducted special
    services in churches in Tennessee, Arkansas and
    Missouri. Upon his graduation from high school,
    he was known as the pastor of a church in
    Clarksville, Arkansas. At the age of 18, he
    attended the College of the Ozarks and was the
    pastor at the Church of the Nazarene, Clarksville
    (1963-1964). During his time there, the average
    church's attendance grew from 28 to 45.

  • Later, James Ahlemann studied at Bethany
    Nazarene College in Bethany, Oklahoma. After
    this, he attended the University of Missouri,
    Columbia, Missouri and then he took a pastorate
    of Church of the Nazarene, O'Fallon, Missouri
    (1965-1967). Besides this, he enrolled at Memphis
    State University, Memphis, TN and was also a
    pastor at Church of the Nazarene, West Memphis,
    Arkansas (1967-1970). In addition to this, James
    Ahlemann was a pastor at Cedar Lane Church of the
    Nazarene, Little Rock, Arkansas from 1970 to 1971
    and Calvary Church of the Nazarene, Arlington,
    Virginia from 1971 to 1977.
  • By the time James Ahlemann was 31, he was
    pastoring the 5th largest church in the
    denomination of the Church of the Nazarene,
    became very popular and was in demand for
    speaking to pastors on the subject of church
    growth throughout the nation. On February 26,
    1976, he opened the United States Senate Session
    in prayer (an honor given to only 12 clergy every
    year by the Chaplain of the Senate). His prayer
    was also printed in The Congressional Record.
