Digital Collection

The archives has digitized and made available online select materials from various collections: the Archives of the Brethren in Christ Church, the Archives of Messiah College, and the Special Collections. These materials document the founding of the denomination and several of its institutions, including the Messiah Rescue and Benevolent Home (later Messiah Village), the Messiah Bible College and Missionary Training Home (later Messiah College), early foreign missionary endeavors in Southern Africa and India, and a church newspaper, the Evangelical Visitor.

The digital collections can be searched using our online catalog.

This initial digitization project has been partially funded with federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
