Rev. Dr. Max Ballard
1914 - 1998
Long considered an outstanding leader in Divine Science, Dr. Max Ballard, the youngest man ever ordained by Dr. Nona L. Brooks (1941), was a deeply spiritual man. He shared his consciousness with Divine Scientists, not only in the pulpit; but in his writings as well. He shared lecture platforms with Emmet Fox, Nona Brooks, H.B. Jeffrey, Irwin Edwin Gregg and other metaphysical spiritual leaders. Dr. Ballard founded the Divine Science Churches in Pueblo, Colorado and Crestwood, Missouri and served as Minister and Minister Emeritus of the Washington, D. C. Church until his transition. He was deeply loved by all with whom he came in contact.
