stout 3

This is a photo of Rev. Charles G. Stout. According to The History of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Wyoming by Bryant D. Badger, Rev. Stout served as State Evangelist for the states of Missouri and Iowa in the latter part of the 19th century. 

As the next decade began, the United Christian Missionary Society called Rev. Stout to be a General Evangelist throughout the western states. In 1921 he was with the First Christian Church of Casper as the new congregation was organized. 

He came to Casper in a Model T Ford with $200 in his pocket. According to his great-grandson, Rev. Mark Pumphrey, Pastor of First Christian Church in Greeley, Colorado, Rev. Stout traveled to Washington D.C. to testify during the Teapot Dome Scandal. Rev. Pumphrey says his great-grandfather was not allowed to speak about his testimony in Washington D.C. because someone at FCC Casper was involved in the scandal! 

Rev. Stout came back to Casper following the resignation of Rev. Roy Hildebrand. From Casper, he went on to serve the Central Christian Church in Pocatello Idaho. In Pocatello Rev. Stout helped secure the land the church remains on to this day. In 1932 he suffered a stroke and remained an invalid for the rest of his life. He died in his home town Paonia, Colorado in 1936 having been cared for by his wife. 

His legacy of ministry continues today in his great-grandson Mark and in his great-great granddaughter Rev. Amy Piatt, Co-Pastor of First Christian Church Granbury Texas.
