Rev. Orr formed the Revival Fellowship Team in 1938 and led them in evangelistic efforts in Ulster and in Australia, before leaving for a tour in China later that year.

Dr. James Edwin Orr, (1912-1987), b. in Belfast, Northern Ireland; d. at Ridgecrest, North Carolina. Orr began evangelising while still a teenager, and the growth of his revival-oriented ministry took him all over the world. He entered the Baptist ministry at Newark, NJ, in 1940, subsequent to revival trips around the world. He served with the 13th Air Force based in Bismark Archipelago, New Guinea and was involved with the campaigns in Borneo, the South Philippines, Luzon, and China. He earned seven battle stars and finished with the rank of major. He took his PhD at Oxford after the close of WWII; his thesis was on the Second Evangelical Awakening in England. He became professor of at the School of World Missions at Fuller Theological Seminary about 1966, and taught until 1981. He was influential in Campus Crusade for Christ, and one of the five original board members. His works include many books on evangelism as well as several popular hymns. Billy Graham said of him, "Dr. J. Edwin Orr, in my opinion, is one of the greatest authorities on the history of religious revivals in the Protestant World." - condensed from wikipedia.
