Thank you for the kind words about my website *Dictionary of Christianese*,
Fred! My frequency of posting has slowed considerably this past year while
I work on a print book entitled *Dictionary of Blended Denominations*
(e.g., fundagelical
<http://www.dictionaryofchristianese.com/blended-denominations-2/>,
presbylutheran <http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/Presbylutheran>,
methobapterian
<http://www.dictionaryofchristianese.com/methobapterian-pentebaptist-baptimethocostal/>,
calminian <http://www.dictionaryofchristianese.com/calminian-armalvinist/>,
etc.)

This antedating is taken from the excellent although limited "Dictionary of
> Christianese" website:



televangelism (OED 1960) 1958 L.A. Times (CA) (27 Sep.) 12 : Ahead is a big
> project, “Televangelism 1959.” … Scheduled to start in Jan. 1959, it will
> be supported by all major Baptist bodies and will emphasize personal
> evangelism.
