Charles Michael Ewing Homegoing

Charles EwingRev. Charles “Chuck” Ewing entered his eternal reward on Saturday, July 14, at the age of 53. He was a wonderful part of the Heartland Conference. A soft-spoken man, Chuck was one of the most likable and down-to-earth people you could ever meet.

Chuck was a bi-vocational minister; in addition to his ministerial service, he worked two and three jobs, often in great pain because of chronic heart problems. He pastored two of our churches: Mountain View PH and most recently, Family Church of Blanchard (now Acts of Grace). He also was a tremendous volunteer in our camping program and maintenance of our Retreat Center.

Chuck was a great teacher and modeled the servant life of Jesus Christ. As a loyal friend he touched hundreds of lives during his journey on earth!

We celebrate Chuck entering his eternal reward and being free from pain. We also lift up his wife Amy and their children and grandchildren.

Velma Pauline Zenger, 90, of Oklahoma City, formerly of Blanchard, died Friday, February 9, 2018, in Alva. She was born December 15, 1927 in Enid, Oklahoma to Jake J. and Carrie (Jantz) Becker. She was raised in the Mennonite Church until her parents received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit when Velma was 9 years old. At that time their family began to attend the Enid Pentecostal Holiness Church in which Bud Roberts, Oral Roberts’ father, served as pastor. From the age of 11, Velma began to teach a Sunday School class for children. During the summer of 1945 she was leading the children’s ministry at a camp-meeting for the then, Oklahoma Conference of the Pentecostal Holiness Church where she met a young preacher named James Zenger. When James first saw her, he told the other young ministers who were standing with him, “That’s the girl I’m going to marry.” James and Velma married on September 1, 1945, that same year, and were faithfully devoted to each other for 70 years until her husband and love of her life passed away on July 8, 2016.
