Show Summary Details


Park Street Congregational church was founded in 1809 as a bastion of Protestant orthodoxy during a time of Unitarian growth. Over the course of the 19th century the church stuck to its theological agenda, but charted a more uncertain course in a changing urban environment. At the brink of closing its doors in 1900, Park Street revitalized under the leadership of A.Z. Conrad and his insistence on a strong conservative, evangelistic program. By the 1930s, Park Street was the center of a regional movement, spurred by the aggressive leadership of pastor Harold John Ockenga and the entrepreneurial zeal of the New England Fellowship, an organization dedicated to worldwide revival.
