This volume - Ministers of the Philadelphia Baptist Association - is an effort to document biographical information on each of the over 900 ministers and other key persons known to have been connected with the Philadelphia Association from its beginning on September 27, 1707, through December 31, 1872, together with the churches they were known to have served. This includes not only the ordained ministers, but those licensed to preach by member churches, whether or not they went on to pastor in the Association’s member churches or missions, as well as other persons who served in some official capacity either with or on behalf of the Association. Each subject is followed by a list of the primary references consulted for the information given. The information gathered from these references was then cross-checked for accuracy with the original published Minutes of the Philadelphia Baptist Association, 1769-1872 (there were no printed minutes before 1769) and the North Philadelphia Association of Baptist Churches, 1858-1872.
The book, Lord willing, will be released the last week of July.
