He took on various jobs when he moved to Philadelphia, where he was converted at Grace Baptist Church, pastored by Russell H. Conwell, on Oct. He was twenty-two years of age and showed so much ministerial potential that his pastor offered to pay his college fees. He then traveled to Chicago to study briefly at Moody Bible Institute before embarking on two evangelistic tours in the South where he became discouraged and depressed. On May 2, , Bartleman married Anna Ladd, a Bulgarian-born woman, adopted and raised by American Methodist missionaries to Bulgaria, but now a matron for fallen girls in Pittsburgh.
Thereafter he joined the Wesleyan Methodist Church and was offered a pastorate in Corry, Pennsylvania, which he found very hard ground indeed. He also saw his horse healed in answer to prayer and experienced the power of the name of Jesus to foil a Satanic attack on himself during the night. He was surely being prepared for the mighty outpouring that was to come. While in Colorado Bartleman continued the work that became his lifelong mission — working with down-and-outs, alcoholics and wayward girls, mostly in inner city rescue missions.
It was here that his writing ministry began. He produced tracts and painted scriptures in highly visible public places like bridges and rock faces. In he arrived in Sacramento, California and was immediately placed in charge of the Peniel Mission, a downtown, holiness rescue mission.
Incompetent workers and continual rivalry between the local Pillar of Fire and Burning Bush Missions caused him to leave the post. He tried to get other pastoral work but was forced to all kinds of odd-jobs to feed his wife and family. They became desperate, even foraging for food in garbage cans.
In December he left for Los Angeles with his wife and two children. But tragedy dogged their steps continually. Throughout Bartleman worked with many holiness missions but found that many were so set in their traditional ways that he was compelled to speak about the need of fresh consecration and humility before the Lord, unless they wanted the coming revival to pass them by. Nevertheless, here were signs of revival everywhere, particularly amongst the Baptists and Methodists.
There was much talk of revival and prayer meetings in preparation for the coming outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It was at this time that Bartleman attended a few prayer meetings led by W. Seymour prior to the Azusa Street revival. But he seldom remained at one address or in one church for very long. Bartleman preached as an itinerant evangelist for 43 years. He traversed the U. Altogether he led a rich and fruitful life but will mostly be remembered for his literary works.

His first book, My Story. How Pentecost Came to Los Angeles chronicled events in which he participated in Los Angeles from through Frank Bartleman died on the afternoon of Aug.

The Pentecostal preacher of today is obliged to spend most of his life in old drafty halls, with the poorest kind of ventilation. That means constant tearing down. The nervous strain brings on neuralgia and chronic congestion, through constant cold contracted, and overwork, for there are so few to do this strenuous kind of work today.

One is drawn upon for their utmost resources constantly.
