First noted for its demonstrative worship, the MCA’s periodical the Burning Bush employing the standard practices of early twentieth century muckraking journalism such as printing legal documents, private correspondence and most notable cartoons critical of Holiness Movement, public religious and political figures had become notorious by 1903. Other religious institutions followed. These included a camp meeting, a Bible School orphanage, and sending of evangelists across the Midwest and the North East. At the Buffalo Rock Camp Meeting of 1902, MCA leaders’ first public embraced the practice of giving up personal property. As 1902 ended, an MCA campaign in New England resulted in the conversion of prominent New England holiness radicals, such as African American Susan Fogg to the MCA.
