Meet Mr. Evangelical

ockengaEvangelicals today are often associated with denomination-free churches (or at least congregations where you have to dig pretty deep into the fine print to find out what it is).  That was not always the case, nor was it the plan of the early neo-evangelicals.  Harold John Ockenga, the man who started the National Association of Evangelicals and a couple of the movement’s key seminaries, did not have “Harold” written in big letters on the outside of a former sports arena.  Maybe that was a good thing.  More here on the man and his Methodist roots.
