10. There have been some impactful evangelicals.
While there is disagreement about the term evangelical, there are a few people that have been lauded as significantly influential to the faith. As noted above, one of those people is the late Billy Graham, who became one of the most prominent evangelicals of all time.
Among others include Joyce Meyer, who launched a “feminine side of evangelism” with her videos and books; James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, and Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life. Many evangelical leaders have faced criticism for their success, wealth, or beliefs, but these Christians have largely found a voice for Christianity.
