John Cowan O'Hair was another driving force behind the establishment of the Grace Gospel in America. He pastored North Shore Church in Chicago, Illinois and helped start the Worldwide Grace Testimony in 1939 and the Grace Gospel Fellowship in 1944. Mr. O'Hair was also on the Board of Directors of the Milwaukee Bible Institute. He had a successful radio ministry in Chicago and wrote many books that have helped shape the Dispensational understanding of thousands through the years. Mr. O'Hair lived on earth from 1876-1958.
Mr. O'Hair was born on December 31, 1876 in Little Rock, Arkansas. He was the third of 12 children. He was raised as a Roman Catholic. He went through high school and business college in Little Rock. He trained as an accountant and went to work in a law firm when he was 19. He held several positions in business and industry before entering the ministry.
Mr. O'Hair received Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1899 and was ordained to the ministry in 1916. Pastor Charles Baker wrote this about Mr. O'Hair:
"He was probably used more than any other man of his generation in recovering for the Church the distinctive truths of the dispensation of the mystery which had been obscured by tradition and ritual. The church lost one of its clearest and most courageous expositors of the Gospel of the Grace of God when Pastor O'Hair died in 1958 at the age of eighty-one."
Pastor O'Hair was, without a doubt, the one person who, more than any other, was used of God to establish among believers what Paul, by inspiration calls, "the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery." He knew that he had the Scriptural solution to the current theological confusion and preached the Word with great power. His oral ministry (including radio) and his many books had a profound effect on thousands here and abroad. As a gospel preacher and soul winner he was without a peer just because he understood so clearly the truth of the unadulterated "gospel of the grace of God." The Church, all over the world, owes him much. John C. O’Hair served as the Pastor for the North Shore Church in Chicago from 1923 to 1956.
