Past Journals

Methodist is Minnesota date back to 1837, but it was not until 1856 that Minnesota officially became a Conference when the first Minnesota Annual Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church was held in Red Wing, MN. Since the time, the Methodist church in Minnesota and around the world has seen various merges and reorganizations. The journals of the various antecedents of Methodist in Minnesota, including today’s United Methodist Church, have been digitized for use by all those interested in the history of Minnesota Methodists.

This project was made possible in part by the people of Minnesota through a grant funded by an appropriation to the Minnesota Historical Society from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Digitized journals include: 

  • Minnesota Methodist Episcopal Church: 1850-1938 
  • Minnesota Methodist Church: 1939-1968 
  • Northern Minnesota Methodist Episcopal Church: 1895-1947 
  • Northern Minnesota Methodist Church: 1939 
  • Church of the United Brethren in Christ: 1857-1946 
  • Evangelical Church Association: 1920-1922 
  • Evangelical Church: 1923-1946 
  • Evangelical United Brethren Church: 1947-1968 
  • United Methodist Church: 1968-present
