Memories Timeline


  1. Brother Stark you've touched countless lives during your time here on this earth. You have profoundly touched my life. My first memory of you is You singing "Roll back the Curtain. " I was 6 or 7 years old. You were the evangelist preaching a tent revival in Centralia Washington in 1977. My Daddy received the Holy Ghost in that revival and died just 1 month later. My Mother who had been fighting a spiritual and emotional battle was delivered in that same revival. I was healed from a condition similar to epilepsy in a tent revival that you held in Scatter Creek. Thank you for giving to the Lord I am a lice that was changed. Honey Baker

  2. I only knew Pastor Stark for a brief time,but I,ll never forget his unconditional love when He looked up at Me and told me He loved me.I knew it was the kind of love that only comes through Gods love projecting through him.I,ll never forget how much He loved us all .He,ll be missed but never forgotten !

  3. My condolences to the family at this difficult time; may you all seek God for peace, comfort, and guidance (2 Cor 1:3).
