One of the most striking aspects of Rader's ministry was the number of later Christian leaders who claimed him as an influence. Among these were:

Peter Deyneka Sr. - Disciple of Paul Rader's, first at Moody Church and then at the Tabernacle. His evangelistic work in eastern Europe was supported by the Tabernacle. Later he founded the Slavic Gospel Association
