The Peoples Gospel Hour

The Peoples Gospel Hour (PGH) is a radio and literature ministry dedicated to the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the unsaved world and teaching the precepts of the Word of God.

Pastor Perry F. Rockwood was the founder and host of The Peoples Gospel Hour a half-hour Gospel program with Bible preaching and God-honouring music, and has been broadcasting every week since the first program aired in September of 1947. Prophecy For Today was his 15-minute daily program.

Pastor Perry F. Rockwood

Pastor Perry F. Rockwood was saved as a young man in 1936, and was immediately called of the Lord to preach the Gospel. The Lord burdened his heart for the lost multitudes on the way to Hell. In 1943, he was ordained into the ministry of the Presbyterian Church. He was taken up on public trial in 1947 by the presbytery in Halifax for preaching four sermons against the apostasy in the church, and consequently resigned. Pastor Perry F. Rockwood then launched out by faith the same year in starting The Peoples Gospel Hour.

Pastor Rockwood also served as pastor of Missionary Bible Church on Kent Street in Halifax. Pastor Rockwood truly appreciated the prayers of fellow believers on his behalf, for his continued health and strength to carry on in the work of the Lord. When asked, "When will you retire?", Pastor Rockwood likes to respond, "When the Devil retires!"

Pastor Perry F. Rockwood's testimony and life story can be read in his booklet "Triumph in God".
