Dr. Charles Cullis (1833-1892), b. in Cambridge, MA, in an Episcopalian family. Sickly as a child, Cullis studied medicine while fighting depression. After the death of his wife from consumption his depression increased until he fell under the influence of Phoebe Palmer and her Tuesday Meetings for the Promotion of Holiness. Dr. Cullis experienced an evangelical conversion, and devoted his life to medical missionary work in Boston, establishing several hospitals for the poor, as well as an orphanage, a mission, a chapel, and a Faith Training College. He also founded The Willard Tract Repository for distributing tracts and Christian books. Dr. Cullis operated on the “faith ministry” basis, trusting God to supply the needs of the various ministries. He was prominent both as a Christian and as a medical doctor, publishing the yearly Consumptives Home Report, and serving on the board of the Massachusetts Homeopathic Medical Society, and was involved with the medical college that became Boston University School of Medicine. – condensed from “The Man Who Believed God,” by Healing and Revival Press.
