Frank Bartleman (December 14, 1871 – August 23, 1936) was an American Pentecostal writer, evangelist and missionary. He was converted to Pentecostalism and also became a preacher in 1892. He began his writing career in 1905.

Achievements[edit]

Bartleman wrote many daily articles for Pentecostal magazines and documented the events that led up to the 1906 Los Angeles revival. Through his writing he accomplished much in the area of evangelism during his lifetime. His book Azusa Street describes the events surrounding the Pentecostal revival. He authored six books, four pamphlets, over five hundred and fifty published articles, and one hundred tracts. Bartleman is best remembered for his chronicles of the 1906 Los Angeles revival.[1]

After the Los Angeles revival and his missionary work (ending with the start of World War I) he returned to evangelistic and street work until his death in 1936. He is buried in Burbank, CA, at Valhalla Memorial Park.[2]
