Biography

Jack Leo Van Impe (born February 9, 1931 is a televangelist who is known for his half-hour weekly television series Jack Van Impe Presents, an eschatological commentary on the news of the week through his interpretation of the Bible. The program airs throughout the United States, Canada, and several other countries through both religious broadcasters and the purchase of paid programming time on commercial television stations. Van Impe’s website claims that he is known as the “Walking Bible” because of his extensive memorization of Bible verses. His wife Rexella Van Impe shares his TV ministry as a co-host.

Since the 1950s, Van Impe has released dozens of Gospel and spoken word recordings. His first album Presenting the Van Impes features Van Impe on the accordion as well as Rexella’s organ playing. Subsequent musical recordings featured the accorgan, a type of electronic accordion.
The rock singer and songwriter Bob Seger features an audio clip of Van Impe criticizing rock and roll music in the introductory portion of his song “Heavy Music Part 2,” the B side of his 1967 Detroit-area hit single Heavy Mus.
