In 1790, evangelicals faced a dual evangelistic challenge: to regain the East and to win the West. In the East, especially in a number of colleges, a fresh enthusiasm for the life of the Spirit was apparent before 1800. This revival came to be know as the Second Great Awakening. This awakening in the East provided the next generation the skilled and dedicated leaders to win the West.
