Roots in the United Methodist Church

Woodie W. White, Bishop, Indiana Area, The United Methodist Church

The United Methodist Church mourns the passing of Dr. Herman B Wells, not only a great educator, but an outstanding Christian gentleman. His deep roots in the United Methodist Church and his commitment to it had a significant impact on the denomination and all who knew him.

Dr. Wells was a man of integrity, foresight and courage. He made a difference. The United Methodist Church was proud to call him one of its sons.

The United Methodist Church in Indiana is richer for the life of Dr. Wells, we are the poorer for his passing.
