Our Apostolic Heritage

by ABI Admissions (9/19/2014)

We were blessed to have Rev. Douglas Hanscomb with us the first two weeks of school. He taught with passion about our pure Apostolic heritage. Our students appreciated how he brought the history of the church alive by tracing our apostolic heritage through the ages.

When Rev. Hanscomb was almost 16 years old he entered the seminary for study with the permission of his parents and finished his high school in the province of Quebec, Canada. He was studying for his Doctor's degree in philosophy when he broke relations with the Roman Catholic Church in 1972. He was never excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church but neither did he complete that course of study. The education that he received at the seminaries in Theology and Philosophy were preparing him for the priesthood in the Roman Tradition.

After he became a born-again Christian in the fall of 1972 he had an opportunity to do work in Europe in a drug rehab program in which he had previously worked when studying for the priesthood. Rev. Hanscomb spent time in England, France, the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland.

Returning to Canada in 1974 he worked on Prince Edward Island assisting Bro. Featherstone in the Apostolic church in Charlottetown. Later, he met his wife in the Nashville, Tennessee area. They married in August, 1975. The Lord has blessed them with two wonderful children, Kevin Douglas, born in 1976 and Kimberly Michelle, in 1978. They have two beautiful grandchildren, Alexia Grace Tyler, 10, and Anelise Hope Tyler, 4 .

Most of the past 40 years of his life has been spent in the state of Tennessee pastoring churches. During that time he has pastored 3 different churches. The last one was in Ashland City, where he and Sis. Hanscomb spent 20 years. Rev. Hanscomb has evangelizied in different areas of the U.S.A. and Canada when not pastoring . He is now a full time evangelist / teacher. He wrote the book From Rome to Jerusalem which outlines our pure apostolic heritage.

Rev. and Sis. Hanscomb have just recently celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary and continue to enjoy their walk together with the Lord.

We look forward to his return to our classrooms in the spring of 2015.
