CVA 371-1769 – [Reverend Elbert Paul, D.D.] 1943 Campbell Studio. Minister of First Baptist Church, 1932-51.
This is an image of a Senior Minister of First Baptist Church, Elbert Paul (1902-1985). He served the church for nineteen years (1932-51), the longest period to date. He took on the pastorship in a time of significant challenge: it was the beginning of the Great Depression; there was a new church directly across Nelson Street from FBC (St. Andrew’s-Wesley United Church); and the church had just endured the trauma and expense of rebuilding the sanctuary in the aftermath of the fire of 1931
. He would also pastor First through the Second World War.
In the years following his term at FBC Vancouver, he pastored churches in Winnipeg, Kitimat, North Vancouver and in the Lower Mainland.
