took well to the Sawdust Trail (in tent crusades and the revival center circuit).Reports were that miracles happened whenever he
conducted a prayer line. As a student in college, Bishop Hargo pastored two (2) churches simultaneously: The Church of the Nazarene in Charleston, West Virginia and the Church of the Nazarene in Rand, West Virginia.He
has to his
credit an extensive ministry into Canada's North Country, ministering in the midst of the Cree and Ojibwa Indians.There he
established many churches, conducting tent revivals and auditorium crusades.To this day, the natives of Canada's North Country talk about an African-American who comes speaking and singing Cree better than the
Cree.Many have written sworn Testimonies of Miracles that were worked when Bishop Hargo prayed over the deaf, lame, and even the blind. Bishop Hargo currently resides in Henderson, Nevada and conducts crusades throughout the USA.He
has the unusual gift of calling individuals out by name, telling addresses and telephone numbers.
