This chapter focuses on the emergence of the Ministry of Laity era. As the Social Gospel era of the FAW movement receded, ending with World War II, it was soon refueled through the midcentury developments that comprise the Ministry of the Laity era. Although this second era built on aspects of earlier 20th-century activity from wave one, this phase of FAW was different. In large part, it was characterized by a shift away from the institutional church and toward an ecclesiastical emphasis on the laity, including its popularization, and the proliferation of special-purpose groups.
