Notes
a. Note:   Theodore Julian VanHorn 1857-1946
  Jon Saunders - Jan 18, 2005   View | Viewers Categories: Milton College Graduate, Minister / Pastor, The Sabbath Recorder Obituary     "The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 140, No 17, p 354, Apr. 29, 1946. Theodore Julian VanHorn, youngest son of Ai and Ameranda Loofboro VanHorn, "Western" pioneers, was born in Welton, Iowa, July 19, 1857, and passed on to his reward February 7, 1946, after months of suffering at Orlando, Fla. Very early in life he felt the call to the gospel ministry.   He was detained from his school preparation to care for his father through a long and painful fatal illness.   With his own health impaired, he spent some time as a young man working in Idaho and Utah in company with two of his uncles. His education came by the hard way.   He worked his way through school - academy, college, and seminary - by teaching in country schools and high school.   He was graduated from Milton College in 1888 and took his theological training at Morgan Park, receiving his B. D. degree from the University of Chicago in 1893.   The same years he was honored by the M.A. degree by Milton College. He was a painstaking student and a scholar of no mean achievement. So long as he lived he was thoroughly conversant with his Greek New Testament, and taught his grandchildren the Twenty-third Psalm in the Hebrew.   He was often called the "teaching pastor," as he awakened the interest of groups of young people in the study of the Bible, laying foundation of life-long acquaintance with the Holy Word.   His sermons were scholarly and sound and were preached with earnest zeal to win his hearer to a knowledge of the Christ whom he loved and so faithfully served - and to build his hearers up in sound faith, holy \\, and consecrated service. After several years in evangelistic work in the great Southwest under the direction of the Seventh Day Baptist Missionary Board, he was called to the pastorate of the Seventh Day Baptist Church of West Hallock, Ill., in 1897.   Thither, a year later he brought his bride, Harriet W. Carpenter of Ashaway, R. I., who proved a worthy companion and helpmeet, contributing much to his success as a pastor by her interest, training, and genius in song, work with Juniors, and illuminated blackboard artistry. Following West Hallock, "T. J." - as he was familiarly known by so many - held pastorates at Brookfield, N. Y.; Albion, Wis.; Dodge Center, Minn.; Gentry, Ark.; Verona, N. Y.; Dunellen, N. J.; and De Ruyter, N. Y.   In 1935, at the age of seventy-eight, he retired and in 1936 went to live at Daytona Beach, Fla. At Daytona Beach, he became a helpful member of the Seventh Day Baptist Church, serving as every capacity as teacher, preacher, clerk, trustee, caretaker, or whatever circumstances called for his aid. His heart and hands reached out to everyone who might need help or sympathy.   All too often his heart outran his physical strength. His voice on the local city broadcast was probably more often heard than any other one preacher; his messages were widely published. His singing voice, which had been so helpful in evangelistic work, served through all the years of his pastorates, and kept strong and sweet to the very last. Twice he was called by the Missionary Society to work in China; but while deeply interested in the foreign field, he felt his work was on the homefront where he was alert to promote both interests.   He was ever loyal to the work of the denomination.   He served for six consecutive years as corresponding secretary of the General Conference. A great man has fallen in the Israel of our God.   It is said he "retired" at the age of seventh-eight.   He never retired.   Someone said of him that he was just "retreaded."   To the last his testimony was clear and the eye of faith rewarding to all who came in touch with him. "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord . . . that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them." Revelation 14: 13.           H. C. V. H.
