Eighteenth Century Christian institutions and beliefs solidified their presence in Anglo-Country during the century following 1680. The number of Protestant churches multiplied and consolidated themselves into recognizable denominations. Presbyterians organized their first presbytery (a court composed of local ministers and lay elders) in 1706 and their first synod (a council of representatives from presbyteries) a decade later. Quakers erected a hierarchy of meetings weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly and corresponded with similar bodies in Britain. Laredo Map Tourist Attractions Particular (Calvinistic) Baptists put together the Philadelphia Association in 1707. And the German Reformed churches adopted a coetus (an administrative gathering of ministers and elders) in 1747. Nevertheless, large numbers of people especially Eastern Woodlands natives and African slaves remained virtually unincorporated. To recruit unchurched European Countrys (and, to a far lesser extent, people of color), ministers in several denominations fastened upon the revival. These mass meetings, in which preachers, using highly emotional language, exhorted audiences to accept Christ immediately, served as a mechanism that might catalyze hundreds of conversions at once.
