Arlie Larimer



Elder Arlie Larimer was born October 9, 1917 at Benton, Kentucky.He married Mary Gillihan in 1940, and fathered two sons: Dolph OwenLarimer and Terry Don Larimer, and one daughter: Cora Dianne Jones.

ELDER ARLIE LARIMER WRITES: As a young man, I played in a band for worldly entertainment. When I was about twenty years old, I heard the voice (if not mistaken) that Paul heard on the Damascus Road. I became much condemned and shortly thereafter, I quit playing in the band. I felt God’s wonderful grace was working in my heart. In 1937, I heard Elder E. M. Beshear quote John 5:24.
This gospel came to me with such force that I have never doubted this was the truth. I carried this burden for five years until August 12, 1942, when I united with the church. In 1948, the church called me to serve as deacon. In theordination I received a burden to preach. Again, I carried this burden for six years.

On the second Saturday in June 1954, I made my first effort to preach. On May 29, 1955, I was ordained to the ministry. I have preached in 28 of the United States, and have missed only 23 Sunday services occupying the pulpit, and this was because of serious illness. In addition to church, I have also preached on the radio.

I have served as pastor of the Original Mt. Moriah Church in Marshall County, Kentucky for 43 years. I also served Old Bethel Church for 23 years and Mt. Zion Church in Graves County, Kentucky. I was pastor at Lone Oak Church in Calloway County, Kentucky, for 39 years.
