Aimee Semple McPherson Aimee_Semple_McPherson

 Aimee Semple McPherson (October 9, 1890 – September 27, 1944), also known as "Sister Aimee"  was a Canadian-born evangelist and media sensation in the 1920s and 1930s. She was also the founder of the Foursquare Church. Aimee McPherson spent several years, from 1918 to 1922 as an itinerant Pentecostal preacher. She eventually settled in Los Angeles. This was to be her base of operation. There she maintained both a home and a church. For several years she continued to travel and raise money for the construction of a large, domed church building in the Echo Park area of Los Angeles, named Angelus Temple.

The church Aimee McPherson built, was dedicated on January 1, 1923. The church had a seating capacity of 5,300 people and was filled to capacity three times each day, seven days a week. In the beginning, Aimee McPherson preached every service. The church eventually evolved into its own denomination, called the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel.
