The MCA was a product of Chicago, Chicago’s evangelical sub-cultural and Chicago Methodism. Its founders were businessmen E. L. Harvey and Duke Farson. In 1897 evangelist Beverly Carradine led the recently established church into the Holiness Movement. Initially sharing much with the Social Gospel Movement, the movement gradually separated from Methodism through the influence of such popular holiness figures as Carradine, Seth C. Rees and Martin Wells Knapp. The movement in turn helped radicalize Knapp and the pioneer missionaries to Japan Charles and Lettie Burd Cowman. The Cowman’s would play a key role in the founding of the Oriental Missionary Society, a key player in the spread of holiness style Christianity through out Asia but especially Korea.
