The beloved Reverend Carl E. Flickner, age 93, died Tuesday May 12, 2020, at Dock Woods Community, Lansdale. Born Sept. 29, 1926, in Kingman, KS, he was the son of the late Joseph and Selma (Albrecht) Flickner, the widower of the late Marie E. (Krigor) Flickner, who passed on Aug. 17, 2009, and the husband of Janis (Kliewer/Schmidt) Flickner. From 1952-1991 Carl and Marie were missionaries with The Evangelical Alliance Mission in India. The Flickners initially did evangelism in villages around Shivpuri and served as house parents to missionary kids in Nasik and Mussoorie. Carl opened a reading room and filled it with Christian literature and Light of Life correspondence course materials for locals to read. He and Marie also started a church in Shivpuri until God raised up a national pastor. They later moved to Agra - site of the Taj Mahal and established a church in the city with a population of 1.3 million. They saw the start of Sunday services in Hindi and in English and Carl was Senior Pastor of the English-speaking group. He also conducted many Bible studies and fellowship meetings over the years. In addition, he and Marie came alongside the work in Jhansi and taught Bible studies and Sunday School. Carl enjoyed teaching the Word of God to establish and build up the Body of Christ in India. He often shared the gospel as he was teaching and over time, he saw men, women, and children come to Christ. Lastly, Carl served as Chairman of the North India field. It wasn't always easy and the ministry in India required perseverance but he exhibited godliness, brotherly kindness, and abounded in hope! Starting in 1993, he would go on to serve as Pastor of Visitation at East Swamp Church in Quakertown, from which he would retire. In addition to his wife, Carl is survived by: son Brian (wife Joyce); daughters Marcia Borgeson (husband Eric), and Judi Flickner; grandsons Kevin Flickner (wife Natalie), Nathan Flickner (wife Amanda), Tristan (wife Erin), and Logan Borgeson; brothers Victor, Larry, and Jesse Flickner; and sister Mildred Boswell.
