History of Greater Saint Paul Area Evangelicals:

The formation of the GSPAE, now known as Crossroads Ministries, goes back as far as 1950.  Officially, the year is indicated as 1954 and was then know as the St. Paul Council of Evangelical Churches.  Its formation grew out of a concern for better materials to be used in Released Time Bible Education classes in public schools, as well as a concern for the lack of religious emphasis at the annual State Fair.  Several local St. Paul churches banded together to from the new association and get it on its feet.
