About the Author
Grover C. Rowe, a young at heart author, was born into an impoverished family in the mid 1930s. His parents, Hicks and Willie Mae Rowe, lived in Cocoa, Florida, in a small wooden house with their nine children. They attended the St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church on their street. There were two things that Grover’s parents emphasized: knowing God and being well-educated.
Rowe was baptized early in life. His zeal for knowledge led him to graduate from Monroe High in Cocoa, Florida, and then from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University in Tallahassee. Grover was then drafted and served in the United States Army. After his discharge, he taught at Monroe High in Cocoa. That is until Uncle Sam shouted, “Recall,” and off he went again to serve his country. Following this tour of duty, Rowe worked in security at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida until his retirement twenty-nine years later.
God’s church has been such an integral part of Rowe’s life that he chose to study how to simplify its history and development for others searching to understand the church. It’s taken him years of reading, fact-checking, investigating and then time composing his book. Hopefully, this book will benefit you and you will enjoy reading it.
