Charles G. Finney (1792-1875)

Charles Grandison Finney was an evangelist and president of Oberlin College. He developed an urban evangelical style of preaching that was based on the experience of making a personal decision for Christ. Finney believed in evangelicalism's link to social reform: temperance, women's rights, and abolitionism. Resigning his New York City parish in 1837 he went to teach theology at Oberlin College. In 1851 he became the college president, but he was president largely in name alone, as he continued to make his lengthy revival tours throughout the U.S. and Great Britain.
