Who's Who In The District
For the Church Year 1939-1940
Northern Indiana District
Church of the Nazarene
In offering this little book to the public, it is our purpose to especially introduce the pastors of the Northern Indiana District, Church of the Nazarene; and it is our hope that you may come to know your nearest Nazarene pastor better. He is in your community for the purpose of rendering a service to you and to your neighbors. He will be glad to have you call upon him when you need spiritual help, or in time of sickness and distress.
If you do not have a regular church home, you will find a warm welcome in the services of any Nazarene Church. We cordially invite you to come and worship with us.

EIGHT YEARS OF PROGRESS IN THE DISTRICT
That you may better understand how the Lord has used the pastors whose pictures you have just seen, and those whose names are listed in this book, we are publishing some of the records of the past eight years.
These pastors have received 9,151 people into full membership of Northern Indiana Nazarene Churches in two quadrenniums. Of this number, only 522 came by transfer from other denominations. This means that Northern Indiana Nazarene ministers are evangelists as well as pastors.
The records made by the people of the district along financial lines are very interesting. The recent annual reports given for the final year in this quadrennium enable us to make definite comparison in the two quadrenniums, and to reach an understanding as to the rapidity of the growth of our church in this section of the State. The total amounts given by our people in round numbers are as follows:
Buildings, Debts and Improvements
Six years ago, the Foreign Mission Budget for the district was set at $7,000. In the recent District Assembly, the pastors underwrote a Foreign Mission Budget of $26,000. Our people in this district should be giving at least $40,000 for this sacred cause within the next five years. Please help us reach this goal.
