General Contributions to the Historical Society
The Historical Society welcomes contributions to its general fund. These contributions are most likely to be used in one of two ways: 1) to provide memberships to Brethren in Christ people beyond Canada and the United States and to help with the significant postage costs associated with those memberships, and 2) to assist with the publication of books, including research and production costs.
Miami Book Project
Over the last 30 years, a single Brethren in Christ church planting in Kendall, Florida has proliferated into a church planting (and adopting) movement of 120 churches, sixty located in south Florida and another sixty in Latin America.
There are few written reports. This unfolding story exists primarily as oral history, retained only in the memories of first-hand participants. The Brethren in Christ Historical Society has endorsed a project to capture this remarkable story in print. As funds allow, the Miami Project will proceed in three phases: research, writing, and publication.
Even with the help of volunteers, the project will involve significant cost for travel (related to interviews), writing, editing, and publishing. Thank you for considering a financial contribution for this project to research, write, and publish the dynamic story of this vibrant Brethren in Christ church-planting movement.
