The Church of Christ Crusade for Christ started in Chicago when a group of ministers convened to discuss techniques that would strengthen the efforts of the local congregations. To this end, the group concluded that a major evangelistic campaign would meet their objectives. Dr. Daniel Harrison was chosen to orchestrate and lead this movement. Thus, the Crusade for Christ was born. The Crusade’s basic philosophy is centered around holistic evangelism. The founding organizers believed that if Christians, in the faith, nationwide, came together, many amazing things would materialize.
