Pentecostal tent campaign, 1958

Pentecostal tent campaign, 1958

Pentecostal evangelists, from left Beryl and Rob Wheeler and Mavis and Ian Hunt, pose with their children outside the ex-army tent used from 1957 for their New Zealand-wide 'Word of Faith Ministry'. At times the tent was pitched directly opposite a church whose members they wished to convert. Rob Wheeler later became a leader in the New Life group of Pentecostal churches.
