Jakob Vetter was a German Pietistic evangelist, at first working in Oberhessen under the Chrischona organization, then after 1902 in the Tent Mission (Zeltmission), which he founded. Charles G. Finney was his inspiration and model in evangelization. He rejected the pentecostal movement and universalism, and was in general a well-balanced person. He exerted a strong influence among the Swiss Mennonites, particularly in the Jura where he often held Bible conferences. According to Neff, he was also received among the Mennonites of Württemberg and the Palatinate and exerted considerable influence there.
