Students called him "Rabbi". His eulogists crowned him "The Father of Preachers" for having taught and prepared in his day at least up to 90 percent or more of the African American pastors and evangelists for Seventh-day Adventist pulpits. If you ever knew the man, you surely became conscious of connecting with a life rich in honor, homiletics, humanitarianism, heroism, and humor. You also knew that he was all about holding aloft the gospel banner of Jesus Christ and being a "voice crying in the wilderness" preparing "the way of the Lord" and making "His paths straight" (Matthew 3:3).

The first African American chair of the Religion Department at Oakwood College, now University, and first pastor of the Oakwood College Church, Elder Moseley shaped an entire generation of preachers and believers. Later serving at the General Conference, this man of God continued to impact the Adventist Church throughout his life, providing leadership at a crucial time in its history.

From author Mervyn A. Warren, the biography of Elder Calvin E. Moseley is both an inspiration and a model for all those who aspire to follow God's plan for their lives.
