Show Summary Details

Preview

Anti-Catholic fervor inspired a new round of institution-building among conservative Protestants. A concerted campaign on behalf of beleaguered street preachers gave rise to the Evangelistic Association of New England in 1887, a para-denominational organization that trained and placed evangelists around the region. In 1889, A. J. Gordon and his associates opened a Missionary Training School (which eventually became Gordon College and Gordon-Conwell Seminary), aimed at sending young men and women to evangelize the world in the shadow of an impending Second Coming.
