From the Encyclopedia of Indianapolis:

Beecher’s activities were not narrowly confined to the ministries of Second Presbyterian. He was Stated Clerk of the Indianapolis Presbytery, served on the executive committee of the INDIANA HISTORICAL SOCIETY, was a member of the INDIANAPOLIS BENEVOLENT SOCIETY, and promoted the movements for temperance and common schools.
On a statewide level, he led revivals in several cities, served as a trustee of Wabash College, and was editor from 1845-1847 of the INDIANA FARMER AND GARDENER, renamed the Western Farmer And Gardener after a merger in 1846. On October 3, 1847, Beecher left Indianapolis to become pastor of Plymouth Congregational Church in Brooklyn, New York, where he would become one of the most famous orators and influential figures of 19th– century America.
