Daniel Paul Rader
Birth: 1878
Colorado, USA
Death: 1938
Hollywood
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Rader was one of the most powerful evangelistic preachers of the early 20th Century. He described himself as an "ex-bell boy, ex-cowboy, ex-prospector, ex-football player, and ex-pugilist." He pastored Moody Church in Chicago, Illinois (1915-1921), and followed founder Albert Simp­son as President of the Christian and Missionary Alliance (1920-1923). Rader founded the Chicago Gospel Tabernacle in 1922 and pastored it for 11 years. He wrote many Gospel song lyrics and a few tunes, and was instrumental in the founding of the Tabernacle Publishing Company.

Rader was also a pioneer of Christian broadcasting. In the early 1920's, the beginning days of radio, station WBBM in Chicago, Illinois, closed every Sunday. Rader received permission to use the studios, and for several years, he ran a 14-hour Christian program every Sunday. Rader called his station-within-a-station WJBT ("Where Jesus Blesses Thousands").
