Ministry and Membership [series]

The Ministry and Membership series (2.5 linear feet) is divided into two subseries (Ministers and Membership). The former subseries is composed of minister's sermons, correspondence, photographs, and documents pertaining to ministerial searches. The records of ministers Rudolf C. (Rudi) Gelsey, Larry G. Hutchinson, Tracy Pullman, and Augustus P. Reccord are particularly well-represented. The latter subseries contains membership directories, records of birth, death, and marriage, photographs, and press clippings pertaining to particular church members.
