Church History and Sacred Story Team


This World Church Team explores our history in responsible ways that inform and encourage our mission.

Team Priorities 2019-2023 

Chartering occurred for the Church History and Sacred Story Team in December 2016. The team engages the church in exploring its history in responsible ways that inform and encourage its mission. 

Goals and objectives include: 

  • Letting church leaders know about new church history issues and questions. 
  • Coordinating oral histories. 
  • Providing content for church communication outlets including: the Herald; CofChrist.org; Project Zion Podcasts’ “Cuppa Joe” history series; and Creating sacred-story-related worship helps. 
  • The team has seven members. Three also serve as World Church historians.
