Lonnie-Frisbee

Lonnie Frisbee (d. 1993)

 

 

 

The story of Lonnie Frisbee is nearly completely missing from official Calvary Chapel documents.

 

The OC Weekly did a story on Frisbee (March 3, 2005).

 

David DiSabatino has produced a life story of Frisbee. DiSabatino wrote:

 

One of the more charismatic personas to emerge from the Jesus People scene was Lonnie Frisbee. Hearing the 'call of God' in a California canyon, Frisbee believed that God wanted him to preach the gospel before the children of counterculture. He was first involved at the now famous Calvary Chapel church where crowds of over 2,000 enthusiastic teenagers came to hear him speak. Frisbee's pictures are displyed throughout the excessive media coverage in 1971.

 

Lonnie Frisbee’s influence was not limited to Calvary Chapel. His influence also propelled John Wimber, the present-day force behind the Vineyard Churches, into the “signs and wonders” ministry. The charismatic hippie's manner was best described as being a combination of pentecostal fervor and mysticism yet his influence on the present charismatic resurgence (Toronto Blessing) has yet to be fathomed. As the Reformation had Luther, the Awakenings had Whitefield and Edwards, so too the Jesus Movement had Lonnie Frisbee.
