John-Hull221Dr. John E. Hull, 90, of Marietta, GA, died Thursday, March 12, 2015.

Born in Fentress County, Tennessee, on January 8, 1925, John Eben Hull was a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for over 65 years, serving churches as both a pastor and an evangelist.  His strong communication skills, his family name identification with Cordell Hull (Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Secretary of State under Franklin Roosevelt), along with his passion for God and people, gave John a strong foundation upon which he built a sterling ministerial career.

Back in 1948, be began The Back to Bethel Hour,  a weekly Bible teaching program which continues to this present day.  John also had a great love for gospel music and in 1951, formed a music trio, The Joymakers, which traveled across the south singing in churches and concert halls.  The group recorded a dozen albums.

John eventually conducted revivals all over the United States and in several countries overseas.  He often said the two greatest influences in his ministry formation were the late J. Harold Smith and the late Lee Roberson.
