This chapter discusses the identity and functions of business people in the interdenominational Christian societies. Case studies of the careers of the members of the business Élites and the lists of the presidents and vice-presidents of these societies are carefully examined including the structures of these interdenominational organizations. These case studies are centred on two of the largest interdenominational organizations, the British and Foreign Bible Society (BFBS) and the YMCA. The chapter also discusses and examines the emergence of evangelical churches that had sprouted during 1954. In this discussion, the businessmen backing Billy Graham, founder of a crusade that changed old Church structure are examined and distinguished. The discussion also includes their motives, their roles and their success in mobilizing finance.
