T.L. Osborn was born December 23, 1923 to Charles Richard Osborn and Mary (Brown) on the family farm in Pocasset, Oklahoma. He stepped through the veil into eternity peacefully, at home surrounded by four generations of his beloved family on February 14th 2013 shortly after asking His Lord Jesus, “Take me home!” He was 89.

Tommy married Daisy Marie Washburn on April 5, 1942 and together they carried the Gospel of Christ to tens of millions of unreached people in over 100 nations declaring with faith and confidence, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” They pioneered many successful methods of evangelism that have become commonplace today.

International Evangelist T.L. Osborn Dies

T.L. Osborn, world missionary evangelist and author, died Friday.

Osborn and his wife, Daisy, established Osborn Ministries International in 1949 in Tulsa. Their ministry reached more than 100 nations and had daily meetings that featured up to 300,000 attendees.

Osborn preferred face-to-face preaching over television, and some believed he preached to more people that way than anyone else in history.

In a statement on Osborn's website, daughter LaDonna Osborn said he was known as "the Father of the Gospel." He was said to be the first missionary evangelist to hold public meetings in non-Christian nations.

An accomplished author, Osborn's best-selling book is "Healing the Sick: A Living Classic."

More than 1 million copies of the book have been printed in English alone.

His books "The Message that Works," "God's Love Plan" and "The Good Life" are textbooks in Bible schools around the world.

Other programs launched through the Osborn's ministry were the Osborn DocuMiracle films and videos and the Osborn National Missionary Assistance Program.

The Osborn DocuMiracle films and videos are offered in 70 languages in 115 nations, and the Osborn National Missionary Assistance Program has helped establish more than 150,000 new churches.

An Oklahoma native, Osborn was born on the family farm in Pocasset.

He was longtime friends with Oral Roberts, whom he met in Sand Springs in the mid 1930s.

He said his ministry was inspired by Roberts.

An international memorial service and tribute celebration is scheduled for 2 p.m. March 6 at Oral Roberts University's Christ's Chapel.
