Description
Most of the material consists of announcements, minutes, and schedules of meetings. The directory of Stockton ministers contains information on most ministers and their churches in Stockton regardless of active membership with the association.
Background
The Stockton Ministerial Association was comprised of ministers of sundry Christian denominations: Presbyterians, Methodists, Catholics, Episcopalians, Baptists, etc. The Stockton Ministerial Association met on Saturday mornings to discuss theological, historical, and social issues, e.g., juvenile delinquents, race relations, handicaps, California Youth Authority, etc. Arthur Maynard, Lawrence Meredith, and Robert Blaney of the University of the Pacific were all members of the association. The association often invited speakers from outside the community to speak at the meetings. On May 2, 1973 the Stockton Ministerial Association merged with the Evangelical Fellowship, forming the Stockton Ministerial Fellowship.
