T.F. Tenney, the United Pentecostal Church International pastor who started preaching at age 16 and went on to lead the denomination's Louisiana district and global missions over a 65-year ministry, was memorialized Tuesday (June 5) by U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham of Alto in remarks on the House floor. 

Tenney, who died Friday at age 84, "was a true man of God who touched the lives of countless people, both at home and around the globe," Abraham said. "He published a dozen books, created thousands of YouTube videos and has a Twitter following of more than 44,000 people - all signs of the incredible legacy of Christian devotion he left behind."
