Thelma Wells was a powerful evangelist and preacher who dedicated her life to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. She passed away recently at the age of 79, and although the cause of death has not been made public, her family and friends are mourning her loss.
Wells was born in 1941 and She completed her first undergraduate and graduate degrees from The University of North Texas before going on to earn an Honorary Doctorate at St Thomas Christian College in Jacksonville Florida -where she also became the first black professor ever hired by them.
She went on to become a well-known author, speaker, and television personality. She was known for her ability to exhort people to Christ and share the gospel in a way that was both powerful and relatable.
In a world where people are often called names for their religion, Agnes’s “God is Not Through With Me Yet” Wells has stood out as someone who wears her faith on her sleeve.
Many people are remembering Wells on social media, sharing their condolences and stories about how she impacted their lives. Dr. Phil tweeted, “Thelma Wells has passed away. What an amazing woman of God she was! Her passion for evangelism and discipleship was contagious.” The 700 Club also tweeted about her death, saying, “We’re deeply saddened by the passing of Thelma Wells.
