We Need Your Help
Despite considerable gains to our collection, it has often been impossible to locate originals—or even copies—of rare publications produced by the IPHC. We are missing many originals of the following IPHC periodicals:
- Live Coals of Fire (1898-1899)
- Live Coals (1902-1907)
- Holiness Advocates (1900-1908)
- Apostolic Evangels (1909-1917, et al)
- Bridegroom’s Messenger (1907-1909, et al)
Related periodicals that have been the object of extensive searches are:
- The Way of Faith (1903-1918, et al)
- The Altamont Witness (1911-1918, originals).
Additional serials of interest include:
- Little Pentecostal People
- Twilight Echoes
- PHC Sunday School Magazine (1920s);
- Southwestern PH News
- The Pentecostal Holiness Herald.
We also lack a complete run of conference minutes from all conferences.
Other items we are interested in
- Images that relate most to our mission must clearly identify persons, location and date of national conferences and conventions, camp meetings and the like.
- Sermons by general superintendents and general officials that are handwritten, typed, transcribed, or on audiotape, video, CD, DVD, etc., are in short supply.
- Histories, diaries, tracts and publications by and about women ministers are particularly underrepresented, as are Hispanics, African-Americans and Asian-Americans in North America.
- Yearbooks from schools, starting with Altamont Bible & Missionary Institute, Falcon Holiness Church, King’s College, Sharon Bible College, Franklin Springs Institute, Southwestern College and Pacific Coast Bible College are sought as historical resources.
Materials that are kept by the IPHC Archives & Research Center will survive to future generations because everything in the fire-rated Archives vault is securely maintained in a controlled environment where humidity, temperature and light exposure are constantly monitored. We are the first stop for serious researchers of IPHC materials and a wide range of needs that serve our church community.
I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old.
