Charles Fox Parham

Charles Fox Parham

Charles F. Parham (4 June 1873 – c. 29 January 1929) was an American preacher and evangelist. Together with William J. Seymour, Parham was one of the two central figures in the development and early spread of Pentecostalism. It was Parham who associated glossolalia with the baptism in the Holy Spirit, a theological connection crucial to the emergence of Pentecostalism as a distinct movement. Parham continues to spark controversy, especially regarding his attitudes and beliefs on race by inviting both African Americans and Mexican Americans to join his new movement.
