Harve Ache was a missionary who came through our church when I grew up. He was good friends with my Dad. I took two missionary trips with Harve to Zambia and India. He was one of my favorite preachers as a kid and imparted a burden to the nations into my life. He had a voice that boomed through the church without a microphone and he kept people on the edge of their seats. I uploaded a few messages I had of him.
The Rev. Harvey E. Ache, 66, of 2801 Stone Road, Marion, Ind., formerly of Allentown, died in November 1994 in Marion General Hospital. He was the husband of Jane (Ford) Ache.
He taught in public schools for 26 years, retiring from the Geneva, Ohio, school system. For the past ten years, he led youth work teams in missionary projects.
Under the foreign board of the Missionary Church Association, he and his wife were missionaries to the Hawaiian Islands in the 1960s and to the Yalunka tribe in Sierra Leone, West Africa, in the 1950s. After returning, he spoke at missionary churches and conventions in Allentown.
A graduate of Fort Wayne (Ind.) Bible College and Kent State University, Ohio, he was a pastor in Missionary churches in Fleetwood and Bad Axe, Mich., during the 1950s. As a student, he was pastor of Viberg Church, near Leo, Ind.
