Church Historian

What is my job?
Keep historical documents of the congregation in order to preserve the heritage and identity of the congregation
Maintain records so the congregation can trace its efforts of the past and built on the past into the future
Remind the congregation of its identity as God's presence in a particular location


What do I do?

  • Review the historical materials and collections of the congregation in order to determine what needs to be done to update, preserve, and interpret the material to people of all ages.   
  • Keep records in good order and interpret the history to others, particularly emphasizing the history of faith and the impact of “lived faith” on the larger community.   
  • Document current events and collect materials to add to the historical record of the congregation.   
  • Lead the congregation in celebration of the annual Heritage Sunday (usually in April or May) and other efforts for congregational and/or community celebration of history.   
  • Link with organizations, people, and resources in and beyond the congregation that are concerned with history.
