Youth on the March


Percy Crawford was a youth-oriented, radio and television evangelist and prominent fundamentalist leader, whose soul-winning evangelistic work rekindled the spirit of revivalism in the 1930s and 40s, and whose sincerity and moderate tone helped to remake the public image of fundamentalism when it was languishing and marginalized in American life. With his unique, rapid-fire preaching style and his wife Ruth’s high-quality musical program, he skillfully used the new media of radio and television to carry the gospel to millions across the nation. In the late 1950s, he saw the potential of FM radio and UHF television and built the first successful Christian broadcasting network, thereby opening up a whole new realm of communication for evangelistic purposes.  Learn More Here
