Springfield Mayor Ken McClure sends his sincere condolences to the family and colleagues of George O. Wood, upon hearing about his passing today.
Wood retired in 2017 as the fourth longest-serving leader out of the 13 general superintendents of the Missouri-based U.S. Assemblies of God, which is now in its 107th year.
“George Wood was a remarkable leader and a person known for building bridges and bringing people together.
He was proud to help move the Assemblies of God to a more diverse organization that reflects the nation’s demographics and because of that, Springfield, being its hometown headquarters, benefitted.
I particularly appreciate his service most recently as the interim president at Evangel University, which was his alma mater,” McClure said.
