THE GRAY EAGLE is the story of over 60 years of ministry by Cline R. Paden. However, rather than follow a literal, chronological review of his life, we would rather present the ministry themes that characterized his life. This will allow us to highlight his missionary service, vision for preacher training, and love for both Gods Word and His church.
Following the Apollo lunar landing on July 20, 1969, America heard those historic words, "The Eagle has landed." Cline said, "I want those words to be inscribed on my tombstone." That said so much about him: his energy, his pioneer spirit, his courage, his on-the-edge career, the visionary spirit of his life, and the inspiration he gave to others to dream and to dare. Now, the Gray Eagle has landed, and we use this text to tell his story.
