With the expanding of western frontiers of the United States came the pioneer missionaries and preachers. These preachers were men of God who feared not man nor beast, but preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ "to the uttermost part of the earth."
Among these fearless men were ministers of the Methodists, the Evangelical Association, and others who had pledged themselves to bring the message of scriptural holiness to the new and expanding area of the great Northwest.
