Aaron Wesley Dicus was born in 1888 in Festus, Missouri. He was a man with high moral principles. He joined the Churches of Christ because it subscribed to the Bible alone, which appealed to his analytical, scientific mind. He made a vow to the Lord that if he received an education he would spend his life in service to the Lord. He became widely known as an evangelist, as well as a professor of physics at Tennessee Tech. In his later years, he worked hard at song writing which used his talents with poetry and music, along with his knowledge of God's word, to continue his work of evangelism.
