Played by Mimi Michaels in Aimee Semple McPherson (2006), and Faye Dunaway in The Disappearance of Aimee (1976).


Angelus Temple was added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 27, 1992.


A 1936 survey indicated that Angelus Temple was assisting more families than any other public or private institution in Los Angeles.


They divorced in 1934. Lost amid the roller-coaster that was Aimee's life and career was her charity work.


Those who stayed to help Aimee with the Herculean task of rebuilding her ministry were shaken to their core when she married on September 13, 1931, as convention at the time held that divorcees did not remarry. It also didn't help that David Hutton, an actor and musician, took full advantage of being "Aimee's man", and had a string of highly-publicized scandals.


Francis Dam broke in 1928, and when an earthquake struck Long Beach in 1933.

In 1928, she opened a commissary which operated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing food, clothing, and medical attention to the needy, regardless or religion, race, ethnicity or national origin. Companies and individuals who would otherwise have nothing to do with Aimee found themselves donating food, supplies, money, or labor.


On May 18, 1926, she and her secretary went to Ocean Park Beach for a swim, but, soon after arriving, Aimee went missing. A search was organized, complete with deep-sea divers, as the media went into a frenzy, reporting "sightings" from Canada to Mexico. It fell to 15-year old Roberta to take to the pulpit and deliver the "altar call" made famous by her mother as parishioners wept, convinced that the woman they affectionately called "Sister" had drowned. In the pre-dawn hours of June 23, Aimee showed up at the Agua Prieta, Mexico home of R. R. Gonzales. She told Gonzales and his wife a wild tale: she had been approached at the beach by a couple who begged her to come to their car to pray for their sick child, but was shoved into the car and taken to a shack in the Mexican desert, where "Steve", "Mexicali Rose", and another man drugged and tortured her. She escaped and walked, by her estimation, 20 miles in the broiling heat. Agua Prieta mayor Ernesto Boubion arranged for his police to transfer her to the Douglas, AZ police, who took her to a hospital. While the 50,000 people who greeted her at Union Station were more-than-willing to believe her, civic leaders - who had initially welcomed Aimee, but were now convinced that her over-the-top brand of Old Time Religion was turning Los Angeles into a laughingstock - were not. Over the objections of her mother and the Temple's lawyers, Aimee went to court to clear her name. In three grand jury inquiries, she could not prove she had been kidnapped. However, District Attorney Asa Keyes could not prove she had NOT been kidnapped; conflicting testimonies, missing evidence, and a lawsuit against Boubion for attempted extortion muddied the waters further. But the damage to her reputation in the "court" of public opinion - spurred by media speculation that she concocted the story to hide a secret tryst with a former employee, a married man - had been done. Hundreds of followers, disillusioned and heartbroken, left Angelus Temple.


She personally spearheaded relief efforts when an earthquake struck Santa Barbara in 1925, when the St.


On January 1, 1923, the world's first "megachurch", Angelus Temple, was dedicated, built by Aimee with funds raised by her followers, donations of building materials, and volunteer labor - "by faith", as she put it - intending it as a place where people of every Christian denomination could gather.


He filed for divorce, citing desertion; it was granted in 1921.


In 1918, Aimee decided to settle in Los Angeles, reasoning that its rampant growth made it the perfect home-base for her ministry. She sent Mildred to Los Angeles in order to rent the largest hall she could find for Aimee's sermons. Aimee was an overnight sensation; people waited for hours to get into the 3,500-seat Temple Auditorium, which was standing-room only.


But the pull of missionary work was too-great: with her children (son Rolf having been born in 1913) in tow, she returned to Canada to begin her ministry. She and the children (joined later by Mildred) spent the next 7 years traveling North America, spreading the "good news", living from hand-to-mouth. Harold eventually tracked Aimee down to Florida to take her back to Rhode Island, only to join her ministry, even doing some preaching himself. But he soon longed for his former life of stability and predictably, and returned to Providence.


They married on February 5, 1912, and moved to Providence, Rhode Island, where she tried to be the dutiful housewife he wanted.


He died of dysentery on August 17, 1910 in Hong Kong; exactly one month later, she gave birth to their daughter, Roberta. On Robert's headstone, Aimee had inscribed: "He led me to Christ". She made her way to New York City, where Mildred, working for the Salvation Army, secured Aimee a job with the charity. There, Aimee met accountant Harold McPherson.


They married on August 12, 1908 in a Salvation Army ceremony. They moved to Chicago to join Pentecostal preacher's William Howard Durham's Full Gospel Assembly, where Aimee discovered her gift as a faith-healer and "speaking in tongues". While in China on missionary work, Aimee and Robert both contracted malaria, probably due to eating food grown in soil which had been fertilized with human feces (a wide-spread practice in China).


Aimee Semple McPherson was born Aimee Elizabeth Kennedy on her family's farm near Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada. She was raised a Methodist, her father James's faith. Her mother Mildred worked for the Salvation Army. In December 1907, she decided to attend a local "tent revival" on a whim, and fell in love with its Irish-born preacher, Robert Semple.
