Council of Revival Ministers

Council of Revival Ministers

The Council of Revival Ministers was a group of disaffected Presbyterian clergy in the frontier areas of Kentucky and Tennessee. Ejected by the Presbyterian Church in 1805, these ministers banded together to better tend their congregations while they sought to address their grievances with the church. In 1810, when it became clear that no redress was forthcoming, most of the Council joined with Finis Ewing in the formation of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
