editors of The Evangelist

Former editors of the Evangelist/Evangelisten: Reinhold A. Jernberg, C. T. Dyrness, Carl Bjuge, Arne Hartmark, and Olai Urang

 

The Evangelist was the official printed magazine and newsletter of the Evangelical Free Church Association, the denominational entity grouping the Norwegian-Danish Evangelical Free Churches in the USA. Its roots lie in the Norwegian-Danish Free Church Association newspaper in the Norwegian language known as Evangelisten, published from the 1890's to the mid-1950's. The Evangelist was begun in the English language in 1928 and continued into the early 1950's. It was conceived as a way of strengthening the faithful of the Free Church, and offering news and perspective from a distinctly Evangelical Free Church perspective.

The founder and first editor was Reinhold A. Jernberg. He was followed by C.T. Dyrness, Carl Bjuge, W. Ingvald Andersson, Jens Pedersen, H.F. Josephson, B.A. Erickson, E.N. Reiersen, A.D. Hartmark and finally until 1950, Olai Urang. Several of them only served a few years due to various illnesses. After the merger of the Norwegian-Danish Free Churches with the Swedish Free Churches in 1950, their respective magazines were merged, first as the Evangelical Beacon and Evangelist, but after 1958 it was shortened to The Evangelical Beacon.
