Lonnie Frisbee: Key figure in Calvary Chapel and Vineyard Christian Fellowship

A hippie evangelist at the beginning of the Jesus People movement, Lonnie Frisbee was a key figure in the history of both Calvary Chapel and the Vineyard Christian Fellowship. Although some argue that neither Calvary Chapel nor Vineyard would have existed without Frisbee - until recently, his contribution to these movements was largely ignored because Frisbee struggled with his homosexuality and died in 1993 at AIDS.
