Freddy Boen



I was born in Fisher County, Texas, on April 10, 1938, to Fred and Reva Boen. In the fall of 1950, my parents united with the church in Roby, Texas, and from that time, we attended services regularly. In 1953, my father was ordained a deacon, and during the ordination service, I began to shed tears. From that time, I began to feel the burden of being baptized. I rebelled for two years. At the West Providence Association in Andrews, Texas, in August 1955, I told them my need to be baptized and become a church member. The following Wednesday, late in the afternoon, Elder Ben Howze baptized my cousin and me. My life was never the same.

On September 19, 1959, I met Ella Walker at the Old New Garden PrimitiveBaptist Church, of which she was a member; that same night, I asked her to marry me. She said, "Yes!" On May 29, 1960, we were married in the home of her parents.

In November of 1959, I opened services for the first time at Old New GardenChurch, Excelsior Springs, Missouri, for Elder Leon Clevenger. This precious minister taught me much. I have been blessed with several other good fathers in the ministry, including Elders Ben Howze, Fred Boen, Afton Richards, and Sid Ellis. I was ordained at the church in Brownwood, Texas, on February 4, 1968.

Since that time, I have served churches in Texas, Arkansas, and North Carolina. I have been blessed to preach in twenty-four states, also Germany and the Philippines, which has resulted in the making of many friends.
