Collection Description

Biographical Note

Bishop Costen Jordan Harrell was born at "Holly Grove," Gates County, North Carolina, on February 12, 1885, the son of Samuel Isaac Harrell, a farmer, and Isadore Costen Harrell. He attended preparatory school at Sunbury Academy, Sunbury, North Carolina. He later enrolled at Trinity College (now Duke University), Durham, North Carolina, where he earned an A.B. degree in 1906. Harrell received M.A. and B.D. degrees at Vanderbilt University in 1910. Later in his career, he received honorary D.D.'s from Randolph Macon College, Duke University, and Emory University; a Litt. D. from Birmingham Southern College; and LL.D.'s from Wofford College and American University.

Harrell was admitted into the North Carolina Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in 1910. He was ordained a deacon in 1911 and an elder in 1913. He held his first pastorates in Raleigh, North Carolina, Durham, North Carolina, and Wilson, North Carolina. He later served as pastor of the First Methodist Church, Atlanta, Epworth Church, Norfolk, Virginia, and Monument Methodist Church, Richmond, Virginia. Harrell was pastor of West End Methodist Church, Nashville, Tennessee, from October 1933 until June 24, 1944, when he was consecrated bishop of the Methodist Church, Southeastern Jurisdiction. His initial assignment was the Birmingham (Alabama) area (which included Cuba). In 1948, Bishop Harrell was assigned to the Charlotte (North Carolina) area, which he served until his retirement in 1956.

In addition to his ministerial career, Bishop Harrell had teaching associations with Methodist-related Duke and Emory Universities. He was instructor in Old Testament at Trinity College, 1914-1915. During the summers of 1923 and 1928, he served as visiting professor in the fields of pastoral ministry and practical theology at Candler School of Theology, Emory University, a position that he reassumed upon his retirement in 1956.

During his active ministry and his retirement, Bishop Harrell figured prominently in the affairs of the Methodist Church and Emory University, serving on various boards and commissions of the Church, and as a trustee of the university. He was fraternal messenger to the Methodist Protestant General Conference, 1932, a member of the Methodist Uniting Conference of 1939, and a member of the General Conferences of 1938, 1940, and 1944. From 1940-1944, he served as Secretary to the Methodist Commission on World Service and Finance. As bishop, he was Chairman of the Methodist Advance Committee, as well as of the Commission to write local church legislation. He was elected to the Board of Trustees of Emory University in 1931, and served in that capacity for 33 years. He was also a member of the University Planning Committee in 1964.

A prolific writer, Bishop Harrell contributed many articles to church periodicals, and was the author of the following books: The Bible: Its Origin and Growth, 1926; Walking with God, 1928; In the School of Prayer, 1929; Friends of God, 1931; The Prophets of Israel, 1933; The Radiant Heart, 1936; A Methodist Child's Membership Manual, 1940; The Way of the Transgressor, 1942; The Word of His Grace, 1943; The Local Church in Methodism, 1952; Stewardship and the Tithe, 1953; I Believe in God, 1958; Christian Affirmations, 1961; The Wonders of His Grace, 1966.

Bishop Harrell married the former Amy Patton Walden (d. 1969) in 1917. The couple had one child, Julius Walden Harrell (1921-1941). Bishop Harrell died in Decatur, Georgia on November 29, 1971, at the age of 86.
