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.
