Atlas of the Church in Appalachia. Administrative Units and Boundaries.
Quinn, Bernard, Ed.; Johnson, Douglas, Ed.
Sponsored by the Commission on Religion in Appalachia, Inc. (CORA), this 1971 atlas seeks to "facilitate communication and planning among CORA member communions and related agencies" within Appalachia by presenting data on administrative units, members, churches, boards, agencies, and committees of the following: American Baptist Convention, American Lutheran Church, Catholic Church, Christian Church (Disciples), Church of God, Church of the Brethren, Episcopal Church, Friends United Meeting, Lutheran Church in America, Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod), Mennonite Church, Presbyterian Church (U.S.), Reformed Church in America, Southern Baptist Convention Home Mission Board, United Church of Christ, United Methodist Church, and United Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Section A of the atlas contains a county-outline map for each communion, showing judicatory boundaries (at 2 levels where appropriate); a data sheet gives names of individual units corresponding to boundaries and addresses of administrative offices that handle day-to-day business. Distributions of denominational membership and local congregations are also provided on spot maps. Section B shows selected church boards, agencies, committees, and projects operative at the regional or judicatory level. Section C contains non-church data relevant to regional church planning; these data are based on 1970 census information. (MJB)
