Pastor Arlie Petree was called into the ministry as a young man shortly after his healing from what a team of doctors described as a medical science rarity. After over seven months of battling the disease while in St. Elisabeth's Hospital in Dayton, Ohio he was left weighing just over 95 pounds.
He was healed Sept 5, 1959 at 9:30PM after his wife (Jeanie) was anointed with oil and stood in proxy for him at a nearby church. It was at this moment that he awoke and felt that he had been touched by the Power of God, so much so that he began to whisper the words, "I am healed".
His testimony has been shared to millions of people on national television several times by different international ministries.
His testimony song "He'll Be There" (which seems to chronicle the most significant lesson learned through his experience) was written two days after his healing (Sept 7, 1959) has been recorded by countless artists many times and has been enjoyed by millions in many countries around the world.
He is recognized not only as a Pastor, conference speaker, singer and an Author but as an award winning songwriter. He has written hundreds of Gospel songs.
Many artists and groups have recorded his music with many of his compositions reaching the top of the charts.
