Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on one small segment of Canadian Pentecostal evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson's long, influential, and controversial ministry that merited little more than a paragraph in Edith Blumhofer's biography - the series of meetings in Montreal in December 1920 and the role this event played in the context of francophone Protestantism in Canadian history. Scholars of French-Canadian Protestantism have hypothesized about and referred to three different waves of French-Canadian Protestant expansion in Canadian history. By the turn of the century, French-Canadian Protestantism was already in a state of decline for which several reasons have been evoked. In the autumn of 1920, Baker's Pentecostal congregation welcomed evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson for a series of evangelistic meetings at St. Andrew's Church.
