This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for general ions on library shelves before il was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

Il has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often diflicult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parlies, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the plus We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find

because we believe a b<x>k is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 

countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means il can be used in any manner

FOREWORD 

The Year Book of the Churches has been well received. Its 
users approve changes included when it succeeded the Federal 
Council Year Book. Their comment and the reviews that have 
appeared in daily papers and religious periodicals assure the pub- 
lishers that it has met the need for a complete and handy 
directory of religious bodies and organizations, with statistics 
and general information. 

The 1919 edition is offered, therefore, with an assurance of its 
value to purchasers. The material will be brought to date and 
a new issue will appear each year in January. The necessity for 
annual publication in shown by the 1600 changes made this year 
in the Directories alone, Part I and Part II. 

The secretary of one of the denominational boards wrote the 
editor, "I can conceive how it may be made more valuable every 
year." It is the intention of the publishers to improve the volume 
annually and they will be glad to receive suggestions from all 
users. 

New material added this year includes figures just compiled by 
the Federal Bureau of the Census concerning the property values 
of the various denominations, their property debts, and their 
current expenses. New statistics are printed also concerning the 
war work of the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. A complete 
list of the chaplains of the Army and Navy is included, which is 
not available elsewhere. Plans are already laid for additional 
new material to be printed in the 1920 volume. 

It remained for a church organization to publish this book 
because the anticipated sale will not pay the costs of manufacture, 
sale and distribution — not to mention collating and editing. The 
advance in price to 75 cents leaves the book still a financial loss, 
but it will be published annually to fill a need and to help further 
the work of the Kingdom.

INDEPENDENT SYNODS 

The Finnish Apostolic Church is not included by some authori- 
ties with the Evangelical Lutheran bodies. The Jehovah Con- 
ference is rather an association of ministers than an organiza- 
tion of churches. The Church of the Lutheran Brethren, while 
regarded as evangelical, is on so different an ecclesiastical basis 
that it is not ordinarily included in the Lutheran Year Books.

DATA ON RELIGIOUS BODIES AND SUNDAY 

SCHOOLS 

The first table of statistics is supplied by the Federal Bureau of 
the Census, and is explained as follows: 

Church Organizations 

The term "church organization" includes any organization for 
religious worship which has a separate membership, whether 
called a church proper, congregation, meeting, society, mission, 
station, or chapel, etc. 

The total number of church organizations in 1916 was 227,487, 
as reported by 201 denominations, counting the independent 
miscellaneous congregations as the equivalent of one denomina- 
tion. The report for 1906 showed a total of 212,230 organiza- 
tions as reported by 188 denominations, and that for 1890 a total 
of 165,151, as reported by 145 denominations. 

The difference in the number of' denominations in 1916, as 
compared with 1906, is the net result of the consolidation or 
dropping out of 16 small denominations and the addition of 29 
small denominations, the latter including those actually in ex- 
istence in 1906, but not then brought to light; those resulting 
from the consolidation of churches, many of which were re- 
ported in 1906 as "independent"; and those resulting from re- 
organization within existing denominations. 

The small increase in the number of church organizations since 
1906 is due to a general tendency toward consolidation and con- 
servation rather than expansion, and to shrinkage and dis- 
intregation consequent on migration among the poorer and 
immigrant people, especially in the South and West. The large 
increase from 1890 to 1906, on the other hand, was due to more 
thorough investigation and more nearly complete returns in 
1906, to heavy immigration, and to a general effort, toward de- 
nominational expansion.

192 Year Book of the Churches 

Church Members 

The term "members" has a variety of uses. In most Protestant 
bodies it is limited to communicants or confirmed members; in 
the Roman Catholic, Eastern, and some other churches it includes 
all baptized persons, while in some bodies it covers enrolled 
persons. 

The whole number of members reported by all religious bodies 
for 1916 was 41,926,854, as compared with a total for 1906 of 
32,936,445, and for 1890 of 20,597,954 members. These figures 
show an apparent increase in church members since 1906 of 
8,990409, but allowance must be made for the difference in the 
membership of the Roman Catholic Church, as given for 1916, 
as compared with the figures used in the reports for 1906 and 
1890. The membership of the Roman Catholic Church covers, 
as above stated, all baptized persons, including infants; but in 
the reports for 1890 and 1906 a deduction of 15 per cent was 
made to cover those under nine years of age, as this was under- 
stood to be the age at which the first communion is usually 
taken ; but no similar deductions were made for the Eastern and 
other churches having a similar basis of membership, because 
of the very much smaller numbers involved. In providing for 
the present census of religious bodies, however, it was decided, 
after most careful consideration, to credit each denomination 
with its total membership, irrespective of the varying conditions 
of membership, whether of age or otherwise. On this basis of 
deduction, the total reported membership of the Roman Catholic 
Church for 1890 (7,343,186) was reduced to 6,241,708, and that 
for 1966 (14,210,755) to 12,079,142. This made a difference for 
1906 of 2,131,613, and, if this deduction had not been made in 
the report for that year, the total membership of all religious 
bodies for 1906 would have been 35,068,058, indicating an increase 
for the ten years from 1906 to 1916 of 6,858,706, or 19.6 per 
cent On a similar basis, the total membership of all religious 
bodies for 1890 would have been 21,699,432, representing an in- 
crease for the sixteen years from 1890 to 1906 of 13,368,626, or 
61.6 per cent. 

The three branches of Baptists together comprised 6,879,584 
members, but if all seventeen Baptist bodies are included the total 
Baptist membership is increased to 7,1 53,3 J 3- Similarly, th* two 
principal Methodist bodies together comprised 5,832,264 mem- 



Statistics 198 

bers, but if all Methodist bodies, seventeen in number, are in- 
cluded, the total Methodist membership is increased to 7,166451. 
The Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A., as shown by the above 
summary, is credited with 1,611,251 members, but including the 
other nine Presbyterian bodies the total Presbyterian member- 
ship in 1916 was 2,255,626. As shown on page 180 the twenty-one 
Lutheran bodies, as a whole, had a total membership of 2467,516, 
of which 777*70* was reported for the Synodical Conference 
alone and 540,642 for the General Council. 

The membership herewith reported for the Jewish Congrega- 
tions requires some explanation. Some congregations reported 
as members all who contribute to the treasury of the congre- 
gation and not infrequently included women and children. The 
more orthodox, on the other hand, reported only those males 
who have incorporated the institution or have bought a share 
or membership in it, but do not recognize as members those who 
are regular attendants or are even contributors. The member- 
ship thus reported represents a total for 1916 of 357,135 persons, 
but this figure is not comparable with that given for 1906 
(101,457), which then comprised heads of families only. 

Ministers 

The number of ministers listed in this report is the result 
of information secured from various authoritative sources, either 
from published reports or through correspondence with repre- 
sentatives of the several denominations. In general^ they include 
only those who are duly authorized to administer the sacra- 
ments and to perform all of the usual functions of the ministry, 
whether or not in active service as pastors in charge of churches. 

The whole number of ministers, as reported for the various 
denominations having regularly ordained ministers, was 191,796 
in 1916, as compared with 164,830 in 1906, and 111,036 in 1890. 

Sunday Schools 

The statistics of Sunday schools for 1916 are given and in- 
clude only those Sunday schools which are conducted by church 
organizations. They are derived, as before stated, from the 
returns for the individual churches in the various denomina- 
tions. 

Of the 227487 church organizations for 1916, a report as to 



194 Year Book of the Churches 

Sunday schools was made for 186,183, or 81.8 per cent In 1906 
there were 167,574 church organizations for which Sunday 
schools were reported, representing 79 per cent of the total 
number of church organizations covered by that census, namely, 
212,230. 

The whole number of Sunday schools reported by the 186,163 
church organizations in 1916 was 194,759, with 1,952,631 officers 
and teachers and 19,935,890 scholars. The report for 1906 gave 
a total of 178,214 Sunday schools, with 1,648,664 officers and 
teachers and 14,685,997 scholars. 

In addition to the Sunday schools conducted by church or- 
ganizations, there are a large number of undenominational and 
union Sunday schools, and statistics of these Sunday schools 
were secured for 191 6, as was the case in 1906, through the 
agency of the International Sunday School Association. The 
total number of undenominational and union Sunday schools 
thus reported for 1916 was 12,535, with 89,952 officers and 
teachers, and 621,670 scholars. The full strength of the Sunday 
schools of the country, both denominational and undenomina- 
tional, for 1916 is represented by a total of 207,294 Sunday 
schools, with 2,042,583 officers and teachers and 26,557,560 
scholars. The equivalent figures for 1906 were 192,722 Sunday 
schools, 1,746,074 officers and teachers, and 15,337,811 scholars. 

Number of Church Edifices 

The statistics of church edifices cover buildings used for 
church services and owned by the congregations using them. 
The building may be consecrated or unconsecrated, a principal 
auditorium, a chapel, or a building including auditorium and 
other rooms for church use. If it is a separate building and is 
owned by the denomination using it, it is classed as a church 
edifice. A rented hall, or other building is not included. 

The total number of church edifices reported for 1916 was 
203,432, against 192,795 in 1906. The largest number reported 
by any single body was 28,406 by the Methodist Episcopal Church ; 
the National Baptist Convention (Colored), and the Southern 
Baptist Convention following with 20,146 and 19,770, respectively. 
The Roman Catholic Church with much the largest membership 
reported 15,120 church edifices. The seating capacity of church 
edifices, which was included in the previous censuses, was not 



Statistics 195 

called for in 1916 as the figures were difficult to obtain and also 
unsatisfactory. 

Value of Church Property 

The value of church property covers the buildings owned 
and used for church services by the denominations using them, 
with their sites and furnishings. Rented buildings or halls, 
parish houses, schools (theological and parochial), cemeteries, 
monasteries, convents, etc., are not included, except as in par- 
ticular instances they are so identified with the auditorium used 
for services that distinction can not be made. 

The total value of such property reported for 1916 was 
$1,676,600,582, as against $1,257,575,867 in 1906, in increase of 
$419,024,715, or 33.3 per cent Especially large increases by 
single denominations are shown for the Roman Catholic Church, 
$81,568,108; the Methodist Episcopal Church, $51,746,209; Prot- 
estant Episcopal Church, $39,949,652; and Presbyterian Church 
in the U. S. A., $35,356,342. 

Expenditures for Year 

These include the amounts for running expenses, repairs and 
improvements, benevolence, and miscellaneous payments for de- 
nominational and general expenses. 

The total is $328,809,999. The largest amounts reported were 
$72,358,136 for the Roman Catholic Church; $43>993,68i for the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, $30,166,158 for the Presbyterian 
Church in the U. S. A.; and $22,509,942 for the Protestant 
Episcopal Church. 

With regard to the figures for members, Sunday schools, 
church edifices, value of church property, and expenditures, it 
is to be remembered that in each case do they represent totals 
reported, rather than the total fact in the entire number of 
organizations.

DATA ON EDUCATION UNDER CHURCH 

AUSPICES 

The educational system controlled by churches includes: 

195,276 Sabbath Schools, with 19,951,675 pupils. 

1,500,000 pupils in private elementary schools (90 per cent 

Catholic). 
1,586 high schools or academies with 103,829 students (55 per 

cent Catholic). 
41 Junior, 395 four-year colleges, with approximately 110,000 

students in 19 18- 19. 
164 schools of theology with approximately 9,000 students in 

1916-17. 

As the forces are at present constituted, it can hardly be said 
that we have a real system of religious education. The Catholics 
and Lutherans have almost a monopoly on the week-day religious 
schools, but relatively small interests in the field of higher edu- 
cation ; while the reverse is true of practically all other Protestant 
churches. Thus, there is no continuity in instruction from the 
lower to the higher grade institutions. Even if this were a 
coherent system, it is significant that only about 8 per cent of 
the pupils in the United States below college grade attend week- 
day religious schools. 

In the field of higher education the position of the churches 
is more secure. Theological instruction is naturally a monopoly 
under church auspices. In the field of Liberal Arts 436 out 01 
563 institutions are directly related to some religious organiza- 
tion. Sixty-two of these are Catholic; the remainder having 
Protestant connections. More than one-half of the students of 
college grade attend these colleges and universities, and even in 
state institutions 70 per cent of the students are members of 
some church. The aggregate resources of these church colleges, 
including both plant and endowment, are in excess of half a 
billion dollars, and during the last four years they have been 
increased by almost thirty million dollars per year. Campaigns 
under way last year included a total asking of more than $100,- 
oeo,ooo. The largest of these, that of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, was successfully terminated July 4, 1918, with more 

than $27,000,000 to its credit.

The Federal Council is an official ecclesiastical organization 
representing most of the Protestants and aiding the correlation 
and promotion of their church work. It is listed herewith, as 
the denominations are, to enable one to know where he may 
get the information or cooperation he desires. . 



ITS NATURE AND SCOPE 

The Federal Council held its first meeting at Philadelphia in 
1908 and was largely the culmination of previous voluntary 
federative movements, the chief of which had been the Evan- 
gelical Alliance and the National Federation of Churches and 
Christian Workers. The important preliminary work leading 
up to the organization was accomplished by the Inter-Church 
Conference on Federation held in Carnegie Hall, New York City, 
in 1905, a body composed of official delegates from thirty de- 
nominations convened through the initiative of the National 
Federation of Churches and Christian Workers. This confer- 
ence adopted the Constitution of the Federal Council and trans- 
mitted it to the various denominations with the understanding 
that approval by two-thirds of them would give it full effect. 
This approval was secured early in 1908. 

The difference between the Federal Council and the previous 
movements is that it is not an individual or voluntary agency, 
or simply an interdenominational fellowship, but is an officially 
and ecclesiastically constituted body. 

It is differentiated from other general movements for the 
manifestation of Christian unity in the fact that it is the coopera- 
tion of the various denominations for service rather than an 
attempt to unite them upon definitions of theology and polity. 

It does not interfere with the autonomy of these bodies and 
its Constitution specifically states that "The Federal Council 
shall have no authority over the constituent bodies adhering to 
it; but its province shall be limited to the expression of its 
counsel and the recommending of a course of action in matters 
of common interest to the churches, local councils, and individ- 
ual Christians. It has no authority to draw up a common creed 
or form of government or of worship, or in any way to limit 
the full autonomy of the Christian bodies adhering to it." 

The basis, scope, and limitations of the Council are indicated 
by the preamble to the Constitution, which reads as follows: 
In the providence of God, the time has come when it seems 



u 



t 



340 Year Book of the Churches 

fitting more folly to manifest the essential oneneu of die Chris- 
tian churches of America, in Jesus Christ as their Divine Lord 
and Savior, and to promote the spirit of fellowship, service, and 
cooperation among them." 

The Federal Council is thus constituted by thirty Protestant 
evangelical denominations, to express their common voice and 
unite them in cooperative activities. 

It includes 142,671 local churches, with 18420,196 members. Its 
constituent Bodies, with statistics, are as follows: 

Constituent Bodies of the Federal Council 



The Council itself consists of 400 members, elected by the 
thirty denominations, and it convenes every four years. The 
Executive Committee, consisting of official representatives of 



Federal Council of Churches 241 

the constituent bodies, meets once a year, with additional spe- 
cial meetings. The Administrative Committee meets once a 
month. 

At its National Offices in New York, under the direction 
of the General Secretary, Executive and Field Secretaries and 
staff, the Council is engaged in the coordination of Christian 
forces in the interest of national and international Christian life. 
A Publication and Printing Department of considerable magni- 
tude is maintained with adequate machinery for reaching the 
churches, and for the publication of volumes and pamphlets. 

The National Offices maintain a staff of about seventy persons 
engaged in this united work. 

The Council has local correspondents in every city of the 
United States, and has foreign correspondents connected with 
the Protestant churches of all countries. 

In addition to the meetings of its own Committees and Com- 
missions, the Council calls frequent representative conferences 
upon matters of common interest to all the churches. 

At the office in Washington, D. C, affairs of national religious 
concern are considered by a resident committee, the work in- 
cluding such matters as chaplains in the Army and Navy, the 
special work in the interest of the colored churches, federation 
in the Southern field, missionary affairs of national and inter- 
national concern, and cooperation with the Government Depart- 
ments and Agencies. 

The Council is incorporated under the laws of the District 
of Columbia. 



PERMANENT COMMISSIONS 

The following are the Permanent Commissions of the Federal 
Council, together with some description of their work: 

COMMISSION ON INTER-CHURCH FEDERATIONS 

(State and Local) 

Chairman Fred B. Smith 

Executive Secretary Rev. Roy B. Guild 

This Commission seeks, in every community having two or 
more churches, the development of some form of organization 



242 Year Book of the Churches 

by which these churches can cooperate in doing for the reli- 
gious, social, and civic welfare of the community what they 
cannot do by working independently of each other. 

It plans to do this by personal visitation, correspondence, and 
literature. It seeks to help construct the machinery in the 
community through which the churches can work with one an- 
other and with other organizations and through which the Com- 
missions of the Federal Council can function. 

During the year 1917 this Commission held a conference at 
Pittsburgh for the purpose of standardizing certain methods 
of work which have become successful features in the programs 
of many federations, or are in the period of testing. The eight 
reports carefully prepared by eight sub-commissions are now 
published in "The Manual of Inter*Church Work." 

There has been a steady increase in the formation of local 
federations which have secured executive secretaries. Because 
of the strategic importance of such a secretary in developing 
the religious life of a city, the Committee on the Securing and 
Training of Executive Secretaries, of which Mr. Harry Wade 
Hicks is the Chairman, is planning to hold this year a summer 
training school for employed and prospective secretaries and 
ministers and laymen who are interested in this work. 

The following State and City Federations have employed Sec- 
retaries, whose names and addresses will be found on page 185: 
California, Indiana, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania; Sacramento, 
Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Chicago, Gary, Indianapolis, 
Terra Haute, Louisville, Portland (Me.), Duluth, St. Paul, Kan- 
sas City, St. Louis, Omaha, Buffalo, New York City, Akron, 
Dayton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Toledo, Youngstown, Erie, Johns- 
town (Pa.), Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Norfolk, and Milwaukee. 

COMMISSION ON EVANGELISM 

Chairman James M. Speers 

Executive Secretary Charles L. Goodell 

This Commission is organized to cooperate with the pastors 
and leaders of the churches in developing and maintaining an 
effective evangelistic movement throughout the nation. Where 
there are church federations, it will render any assistance in 
its power to make effective their federated evangelistic work. It 
will cooperate with denominational evangelistic commissions 



\. 



Federal Council of Churches 243 

where there are no federated movements. In denominations 
where there are no organized evangelistic commissions it will 
be glad to give aid in the forming of such commissions and to 
supply such literature as may be helpful in the development of 
their work. 

The Commission has lately reorganized with James M. Speers 
as Chairman, and Rev. Charles L. Goodell as Executive Secre- 
tary. The latter will be glad to assist conferences and conven- 
tions in putting on a program which will exalt the chief busi- 
ness of the church in winning men to God and sending them 
out for the largest Christian usefulness. He is called to give 
addresses or courses of lectures before a large number of theo- 
logical schools of the different denominations, and he will be 
glad to address ministerial bodies concerning soul winning. 

The Commission has an aggressive evangelistic program and 
will furnish literature and methods wherever desired. It will 
act as a clearing house for the work of all the denominations 
and will keep each informed of the methods and results in 
other fields. Where vocational evangelism is desired it will 
furnish a list of accredited evangelists. It hopes to be of special 
service in urging upon churches, where such is needed, in view 
of the return of our soldiers, a federated Sunday night service. 
It will also by addresses and literature seek to develop home 
religion and to make the Sunday school a greater power in the 
spiritual life of the church. 

COMMISSION ON THE CHURCH AND SOCIAL 

SERVICE 

Chairman Rev. Henry Churchill King 

Executive Secretary Rev. Worth M. Tippy 

• Research Secretary Rev. F. Ernest Johnson 

The purpose of the Commission is to cooperate with similar 
church organizations in the study and improvement of social 
conditions; to encourage the organization of departments or 
commissions of social service in denominations not so organized; 
to cooperate with the denominational agencies in organizing 
local churches for neighborhood and community service; to 
assist departments of social service in community federations 
of churches; to cooperate in public welfare effort with national 
social movements and agencies, and with departments of the 



244 Year Book of the Churches 

national and state governments; to labor to establish social 
justice, democratic institutions and a Christian international 
social order. 

The following denominations have social service organizations 
with executive or field secretaries: 

Baptist Churches, North: Department of Social Service and 
Brotherhood, Rev. Samuel Z. Batten, Secretary, 1701 Chestnut 
St., Philadelphia, Pa. 

Methodist Episcopal Church: Federation for Social Service, 
Rev. Harry F. Ward, 150 Fifth Ave;. New York City. 

Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A.: Rev. Paul Moore 
Strayer, Chairman of the Social Service Commission, 4 Meigs 
Street, Rochester, N. Y. 

Protestant Episcopal Church: Joint Commission on Social 
Service, Rev. Frank M. Crouch, Executive Secretary, The Church 
Missions House, 281 Fourth Avenue, New York City. 

Disciples of Christ: Commission on Social Service and die 
Country Church, Prof. Alva W. Taylor, Secretary, Bible College, 
Columbia, Mo. 

These men, with the Executive Secretary of the Federal Coun- 
cil Commission, compose a Secretarial Council formed to secure 
harmony of action. 

The formation of the Joint Committee on War Production 
Communities was finally consummated July 15, 1918. It con- 
sists of seven members from the Home Missions Council, two 
from the Council of Women for Home Missions and seven from 
the General War-Time Commission of the Churches. A re- 
quest was made through the General War-Time Commission to 
the Commission on the Church and Social Service, that its 
Executive Secretary and the going force of its office, be re- 
quested to take executive management of the work. A common 
budget was established, the office force was sufficiently enlarged, 
and the work set up on an effective basis. Since the 15th of 
July, covering a period of approximately six months, coopera- 
tion has been established with several of the large denomina- 
tional boards and war councils, and an understanding reached 
with the Y. M. C A., the Y. W. C A. and the Ordnance De- 
partment. The Joint Committee was given responsibility by the 
War Department for Protestant church work in ordnance reser- 
vations, similar to the responsibility of Jewish and Catholic 
bodies. Up to the present time Liberty churches have been 
started in seven of these centers and a few more will shortly 



Federal Council of Churches 245 

be in operation. The steps leading up to this work have been 
trying in the extreme, and sometimes it has seemed an almost 
impossible task to bring the forces together, but it has been ac- 
complished. 

The Joint Committee has also undertaken work in the more 
established communities, such as shipbuilding centers, centers for 
the manufacture of airplanes, small arms and other war supplies. 
The plan has been to send in experienced community organizers, 
to bring about an effective organization of the churches for war 
purposes, to secure concerted effort to reach the new population 
especially the working people, and finally to organize the churches 
and other civic and social agencies in behalf of the social wel- 
fare of the new population. Community organization is now 
well under way in nineteen of these centers, and as rapidly as 
possible the various communities surveyed will be taken in 
hand. In all this local work the organizers are under the di- 
rection of the local churches as well as the Joint Committee, and 
in correct relations with community and governmental agencies. 

The work in behalf of industrial women is getting started. 
Four women have been employed at different times at survey- 
ing and organizing the women of the churches in specfic fields. 
At present, the Council of Women for Home Missions is organ- 
izing its office and plans are under way for several women com- 
munity church organizers. One representative is now at work 
in the Chester field. The plan here is to arouse the interest of 
church women in the welfare of their sisters in their own com- 
munities, and to definitely organize the local churches for co- 
operation in behalf of women and girls in the industries. 

Reverend Harold M. Kingsley gives his whole time to the 
organization of colored churches in industrial areas, in behalf of 
the new population which has come from the south, and for the 
industrial and social welfare of the negro population in ordnance 
reservations. He is also cooperating with Reverend W. E. Fin- 
ley in the organization of the church work in southern logging 
camps. This work by Dr. Finley has grown out of initial surveys 
in southern logging camps which has revealed a most serious need 
of religious care. Two-thirds of the workers are negroes, and it 
will be necessary, therefore, to develop the two types of work 
side by side. 



246 Year Book of the Churches 

In order to maintain the work of the Commission on the 
Church and Social Service at full force it became necessary to 
bring in additional assistance and it was possible to secure the 
half-time service of Reverend F. Ernest Johnson of New York 
City, as Research Secretary. Mr. Johnson has taken over much 
of the burden of detail involved in the Commission work and 
has been doing valuable work in developing and reconstructing 
the literature of the Commission, in the preparation of the Labor 
Day Program and the Bibliography of Social Service, and in 
meeting representatives of national, social and religious agencies 
in the stated fields of social service, who came to the Commis- 
sion for guidance with the churches and for cooperation. 

During the year an American-Canadian Committee on Social 
Service has been formed for mutual helpfulness in common 
movements. 

COMMISSION ON THE CHURCH AND COUNTRY 

LIFE 

Chairman Gifford Pinchot 

Executive Secretary. . . .Rev. Edmund de S. Brunner 
Field Secretary Rev. Charles O. GUI 

The Commission has assisted in the organization of a Rural 
Life Association in Ohio, and a Committee of Interchurch Co- 
operation consisting of leading officials of eleven denominations 

to investigate and report upon conditions of country life as 
affecting the churches. A survey has just been completed cover- 
ing the country districts in Ohio, comprising an area of 40,000 
square miles. The findings will be published under the title, 
"Six Thousand Country Churches." Substantial results have 
been achieved in the forwarding of the movement for con- 
servation and improvement of the country churches and rural 
life in Ohio, including the awakening of a strong desire among 
the farmers for Christian cooperation in the small communities 
and a radical change in the program of many churches in a 
large area. 

The work of the Commission is indicated in the volumes 
entitled, "The Country Church" and "The Church and Country 
Life." 

The war work of the Commission was merged for six months 



Federal Council of Churches 247 

with that of the Social Service Commission and is now being 
carried forward energetically under the Committee on War Pro- 
duction Communities. State Conferences are being held, pastors 
and churches that have done significant war service are being 
listed and prepared for reconstruction tasks under the name of 
Rural Liberty Churches. 

NATIONAL TEMPERANCE SOCIETY AND 
COMMISSION ON TEMPERANCE 

Chairman Hon. Carl E. Milliken 

Chairman of Joint Exec. Com., Rev. Rufus W. Miller 
Acting Exec. Sec Rev. Charles S. Macfarland 

This Commission, now united with the oldest American 
temperance society, works with the denominational and other 
agencies, to promote personal abstinence from intoxicating 
beverages, by research, exhibits, photoplays, lantern slides, 
literature, and the creation of public sentiment to ensure proper 
legislation. 

A "Strengthen America Campaign" under the chairmanship of 
Rev. Charles Stelzle, is in progress, making large use of the 
daily press through the country. 
An active part was taken in securing Congressional action 
favoring the Constitutional Prohibition Amendment. 

Labor temperance mass meetings have been held in several 
cities. 

The following periodicals covering temperance interests are

COMMISSION ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Chairman John H. Finley 

Secretary Rev. Henry H. Meyer 

The Commission on Christian Education endeavors to serve 
all the denominations connected with the Federal Council as well 
as the several Commissions of the Council itself. Its special 
field is that of correlating the work of the various educational 
agencies of the churches and of promoting cooperation in a 
common program of religious education. It has given especial 
attention to the study of qualifications for ordination to the 
Christian ministry and has cooperated with the government in 
plans for sex education and social hygiene. It is at present en- 
gaged in a comprehensive study of the field and agencies of 
religious education in their bearing upon the problems of re- 
construction. 

Its work is set forth in the volume, "Cooperation in Chris- 
tian Education." 

COMMISSION ON INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE AND 

GOOD WILL 

Chairman Rev. W. H. P. Pounce 

Secretary Rev. Charles S. Macfarland

United States for the solution of American Oriental problems 
in accord with the highest standards of Christian Statesman- 
ship." 

Its work is outlined in "The Church and International Rela- 
tions — Japan/' one of the six volumes in the Library of Chris- 
tian Cooperation, and the volume "The Japanese Problem in the 
United States."

Throughout the country a more sympathetic feeling toward 
Japan and her problems is apparent. While many factors have 
been at work, the contribution of this commission has been an 
important one. 

GENERAL WARTIME COMMISSION OP THE 

CHURCHES 

Chairman Robert E. Speer 

V ice-Chairman Rt. Rev. William Lawrence 

Secretary Rev. William Adams Brown 

Associate Secretary Rev. Gaylord S, White 

Assistant Secretary Harold H. Tryon 

" " Rev. W. Stuart Cramer 

" " Rev. Jasper T. Moses 

This commission had its inception at a meeting of the Federal 
Council at Washington on May 8 and 9, 191 7. The discussion 
at that meeting developed the fact that some representative com- 
mission would be needed to act on behalf of the churches in 
their effort to deal with the new problems raised by the war; 
and the Administrative Committee was authorized to take the 
necessary steps to bring this about 

The purpose of the commission was defined as follows: 

1. To coordinate existing and proposed activities and to bring 
them into intelligent and sympathetic relationship so as to avoid 
all waste and friction and to promote efficiency. 

2. To suggest to the proper agency or agencies any further 
work called for and not being done. 

3. To provide for or perform such work as can best be done 
in a cooperative way. 

4. To furnish means of common and united expression when 
such is desired. 

The spirit in which it approaches this task is expressed in 
the opening statement adopted by the commission at its first 
meeting — "The Commission will do its work in close coopera- 
tion with the existing agencies and commissions of the Federal 
Council, with the commissions or other war agencies in the vari- 
ous communions, and with the interdenominational agencies al- 
ready at work. It will seek to serve them all as a clearing house 
of information and as an agency of sympathetic coordination. 
Its purpose is not to replace or duplicate, much less to check 
any activity directed toward dealing with the task which is too 
great for all the forces which can be brought to bear upon it 




Federal Council of Churches 251 

Its purpose is to support and strengthen all such influence in 
the fullest measure to the end that the churches may be able to 
render the largest service to the young men of the nation and 
to the nation itself in this great and critical time." 

The following list of important committees indicates the range 
of work, much of which will be continued through the period of 
demobilization and reconstruction: Survey of the Field and 
Work, General Committee on Army and Navy Chaplains, Camp 
Neighborhoods, War Production Communities (a joint commit- 
tee officially representing also the Home Missions Council), 
Negro Welfare, Interned Aliens, War-Time Work in the Local 
Church and Cooperation with the American Red Cross, Social 
Hygiene and Sex Morality, Recruiting for the Work of the 
Churches at Home and Abroad, Exchange of Ministerial Serv- 
ice, Days of Prayer and the Devotional Life, Literature and 
Publicity. There are also Committees on Conference with the 
Young Men's Christian Association, Young Women's Christian 
Association and the War Camp Community Service. 

The Annual Reports of the Federal Council for 1917 and 1918 
contain further information concerning the work of the Com- 
mission.
