Date of Award
The Evangelical Methodist Church is a very young denomination. It was organized by a small group of laymen and ministers in Memphis, Tennessee on May 9, 1946. It came into being with the conviction to preserve the doctrines of Methodism and be an evangelical witness in the world. Under the blessing of God she has grown steadily. There are Churches and Sunday Schools scattered across the United States, many of them struggling for want of administrative helps with a denominational emphasis. The demands upon the denominational leaders have made it impossible for them to write the material which is needed to guide each local church in her educational task. To this end this work is dedicated.
