Televangelism, as television evangelism, has existed since the popularization of the household television Hadden, But broadcast evangelism has existed since well before then, since the arrival of the household radio in Hadden. Religious broadcasters were able to capitalize on the limited intervening power of the government at the time who had failed to predict the radio being used this way to project extremely partisan, occasionally anti-government messaging Hadden. They did so to spread the Christian religion and its teachings, and in doing so gained massive followings Hadden.

By the time the television became popular after World War II, broadcast evangelism was well-established as a religious aspect of popular culture. With the shift to television came the opportunity for increased profitability.

First, televangelists began to turn to their audience seeking donations to fund the purchasing of air time Hadden. Hadden describes this as a natural consequence of commerce: Shortly thereafter, televangelists began to accept donations for other reasons. This coincided with the rise of charismatic Christianity in the s, a movement in which John Osteen was a dominant figure Sinitiere, More importantly, charismatic Christians began to associate financial donations from viewers to themselves with healing experiences, praising the spiritual power with which they were allegedly able to bring about physical healing Sinitiere.

The money raised through these donations could then be used to fund missionary travels around the world, encountering local populations and hopefully influencing them to accept Christ into their lives Sinitiere. The desire to globalize the Christian religion, through missions, forced conversion, and other tactics, has been an important religious phenomenon since long before the advent of televangelism.

But in the specific case of televangelism, the push to globalize was driven at least in part by a saturation of local markets Hadden, By the end of the s, this saturation also led to the end of mainstream televangelism Hadden.
