Norman Grubb was a missionary to the Belgian Congo in the 1920’s with the Heart of Africa Mission founded by C.T. Studd. After C.T.’s death Norman became the head of the mission which had been renamed Worldwide Evangelization Crusade (WEC).
Norman married Pauline Studd Grubb in 1919 and they had four children. After serving in Africa and England they moved to the United States in 1957 to take over the leadership of WEC U.S.A. Norman was involved in many other Christian organizations, including: Faith at Work and International Christian Leadership. He was a prolific writer, producing numerous books, articles and letters! His most well-known writings are Rees Howells Intercessor, C.T. Studd Cricketer and Pioneer and The Key to Everything.
He saw his retirement from WEC in 1965 as God’s “redirection” for him to bring to the body of Christ the truth of Galatians 2:20 which God had given him long ago in Africa: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me.” Through the last years and days of his life his joy continued to be bringing the world the message that the Apostle Paul called his second commission, “to fulfill the word of God; even the mystery hidden from ages and generations, but now is made manifest to His saints…which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
