A. A. Allen was a famous evangelist and faith healer who led large crusades in the 1950s and 1960s. He was also one of the first ministers to develop a large radio and television following.

A. A. Allen was born Asa A. Allen at Sulphur Rock, Arkansas. His early life was lived in an often unpleasant environment. Having been born to a white and a Native American parent, his family was very poor, and his father was an alcoholic. At the age of 23, Allen became a Christian at the Onward Methodist Church in Miller, Missouri.

In 1955, Allen purchased a large tent and he was one of the major healing evangelists on the revival circuit. Allen's revival meetings were similar to the other leading evangelists of the time (such as Jack Coe, Oral Roberts, and William Branham).

Allen continued on the revival circuit, and in 1958, he purchased a tent that could seat over 22,000. He became one of the first evangelists to call poverty a spirit and believed in God's ability to perform miracles financially.

He became one of the first to develop a national television ministry. His television programs frequently included excerpts from his "healing line" ministry. At his peak, he appeared on fifty-eight radio stations daily as well as forty-three TV stations. By the late 1960s, music formed an increasingly dominant part of his programs, with that music often being performed by African-American singer and choir leader Gene Martin

At the time of his death, his Arizona “Miracle Valley” headquarters was 2,400 acres with its own airfield. At that time, A. A. Allen Revivals, Inc. was publishing over 60 million pieces of literature a year. The circulation of Miracle Magazine, published monthly by the Allen ministry, was 450,000 at the time of his death. He was, for a time, associated with the "Voice of Healing" movement founded by Gordon Lindsay. Allen was buried at his ministry headquarters in Miracle Valley, Arizona. (Source: Wikipedia).
