Pacific Union “All God’s People,” July 8, 2022 S6 E25


This week we dedicate our episode to Walter E. Arties, who passed to his rest on June 26, 2022, in Phoenix, Arizona. Best known as a gospel singer, Elder Arties founded Breath of Life Television Ministries in 1974. He was an ordained minister in the Seventh-day Adventist church, a recording artist whose albums touched thousands, a member of the Breath of Life quartet, and the director of the Walter Arties Chorale. In a career spanning six decades, Pastor Arties mastered every aspect of music and ministry. He’s listed in the “Who’s Who Among Black Americans,” and he traveled the world doing evangelism with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association as well as with Breath of Life and Voice of Prophecy.

Connie Vandeman Jeffery discusses some of her personal memories of Pastor Arties and shares footage of his songs from It Is Written classics.

A memorial service is scheduled for August 7, 2022 at 1 p.m. at the Oakwood University Church. Condolences may be sent to: Breath of Life Ministries, c/o Amalia Dugal, P.O. Box 5960, Huntsville, AL 35814. In lieu of flowers: please send donations to Breath of Life Ministries (same address above).
