ORGANIZATIONAL SKETCH

From “The Creation of the United Church of Christ in North Dakota,” Charles A. Maxfield and “The Northern Plains Conference of the United Church of Christ: A Condensed History,” Eunice Shapleigh Brinckerhoff

“The early Congregationalists thought of themselves, not as an organized denomination, but as congregations seeking fellowship with all-like-minded Christians. They did not become a denomination and affirm a national identity until 1871 when they established a national council of Congregational churches in Oberlin, Ohio.

By the end of the 18th century new New England Congregationalists had opened their first church in Ohio. After the American Home Missionary Society was organized in 1826, Congregational missionaries, along with other Christian groups, set out to fill the empty territory of Northern Dakota with churches.

Walhalla received a brief visit from a Congregational missionary family as early as 1853. But, after the mother was shot by unfriendly Indians in 1854, the family returned to the east. During the decade of 1870, Congregational missionary work began in Wahpeton, Fargo, Jamestown and Bismarck, and, in 1876, Reverend Charles L. Hall began his lifelong ministry with the Three Affiliated Tribes. He organized the first reservation church at Fort Berthold in October 1880.

From 1880-1910, ministers commissioned by the American Home Missionary Society combed the territory with vast amounts of energy and enthusiasm for their work as general missionaries for Northern Dakota. In 1880, the first English Congregational church in the state was organized in Mandan. In 1881, churches sprang up in Wahpeton, Fargo (First), Sanborn and Valley City, followed by 8 more eastern churches in 1882. By 1885, 32 Congregational churches were organized; by 1895 there were 64, and by 1910, there were 164 Congregational congregations on the prairie.

Fargo was the center of great Congregational activity during the ‘80s. As the city grew, a group of people on the north side desired their own church. Plymouth Chapel was built in December, 1882, and this second Fargo church was organized in 1885. The General Congregational Association of North Dakota was organized in 1882. Members called on seminary graduates to come and help shape this growing territory into an ‘Empire of Christ’. They discussed the establishment of a Christian academy and opened Fargo College in 1887.

When North Dakota became a state in 1889, the church in Williston was among the 15 Congregational churches that opened that year. The Gospel was quickly spreading west! The need for a centrally located education facility prompted the founding of Phillips Academy in New Rockford in 1905. From 5 teachers and 94 students in 1909, it grew into a Junior College of 11 departments and was renamed the New Rockford Collegiate Institute in 1911.

In 1910, the General Congregational Association of North Dakota became the Congregational Conference of North Dakota and expansion continued. The peak of these growing years came in 1916 when the number of German and English Congregational churches combined totaled 242.

Although the state population continued to rise until the depression years, North Dakota never became as thickly settled as states farther east, and towns did not grow into cities as expected. As a period of retrenchment began, the New Rockford Collegiate Institute closed in 1917, followed by Fargo College in 1922. During the ‘30’s, when severe drought destroyed the farm economy and 1/3 of the churches were forced to close, records show church membership, amazingly, continuing to grow. In 1931, when Congregational churches united with Christian churches, the Conference became the North Dakota Congregational Christian Conference, and, in 1935, land for a youth camp at Lake Metigoshe was purchased. By 1941, the church structure within the state had been consolidated and stabilized.

From its inception in 1882, the North Dakota Conference was a “Home Missionary” conference. All operating expenses were paid by national missionary organizations which evolved into the National Board of Home Missions. In 1960 there were 70 active Congregational churches in the state with a resident membership of 6,577. They were scattered from Fargo to Beach and Grand Forks to Williston. Although the Conference became self-supporting in 1955, the Board of Home Missions continued to fund outreach ministries, aid to local churches, and salaries of the Christian Education Director and Associate Minister.

After the United Church of Christ was born in 1957, the Conference appointed a joint steering committee to make plans for this union. The other denominational groups were invited to Pilgrim Park, Congregational youth rallies and women’s’ activities. With strong leadership to provide support for 44 additional churches, the new conference would be centrally located in Bismarck…” (Brinckerhoff, 4-7).

On October 11, 1963 the Constituting Convention of the North Dakota Conference United Church of Christ was held at the Jamestown Congregational Church. The purpose of the meeting was to create a new legal entity, the North Dakota Conference, United Church of Christ. On June 25, 1957, the Evangelical and Reformed Church and the Congregational Christian churches united to form the United Church of Christ. In 1960 the General Synod of the UCC had approved a new constitution and by-laws for the new denomination. On October 13, 1963 the North Dakota Congregational Conference, the North Dakota (German Congregational) Association, the churches of the Northern Synod (Evangelical) in North Dakota and the churches of the Dakota Synod (Reformed) in North Dakota and Canada united to form the North Dakota Conference United Church of Christ.  (“The Creation of the United Church of Christ in North Dakota,” Charles A. Maxfield, 1-3)

1995 was a banner year for the conference...In June, 1995, members of  Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian and United Church of Christ faith traditions gathered at the Bismarck Civic Center for a three day Ecumenical Assembly. And when the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bismarck delivered the keynote address at the closing worship service of the assembly, it was truly a ‘united and uniting’ experience. At that historic meeting, the conference was renamed the Northern Plains Conference to more accurately reflect its boundaries” (Brinckerhoff, 16).

SCOPE AND CONTENT

Records of the Congregational Christian Conference of ND (CCCND) (formerly MSS 10094) were added to the collection in May 2012 because the CCCND was the precursor to the North Dakota Conference of the United Church of Christ (NDCUCC), which in turn became part of the Northern Plains Conference of the United Church of Christ (NPCUCC) in 1995. Because several mergers were involved in the history of the organization(s), often accompanied by the incorporation of other organizations, it is important to maintain the provenance of these records.

As a result, this collection contains the earliest records to present day records, beginning with the North Dakota Congregational Home Missionary Society (NDCHMS), Congregational Church Building Society of North Dakota (CCBSND), Northern Dakota Association of Congregational Churches and the General Congregational Association of North Dakota and Eastern Montana minutes. The General Congregational Association of North Dakota became the Congregational Conference of North Dakota (CCND) in 1910.  In 1931, the Conference became the North Dakota Congregational Christian Conference (NDCCC) when Congregational churches united with Christian churches. In 1963 the North Dakota Congregational Conference, the North Dakota (German Congregational) Association, the churches of the Northern Synod (Evangelical) in North Dakota and the churches of the Dakota Synod (Reformed) in North Dakota and Canada united to form the North Dakota Conference United Church of Christ. Finally, in 1995, members of Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian and UCC united to form the Northern Plains Conference of the United Church of Christ.  The collection contains records of the organization under all of these names and some documentation of the processes involved in the mergers and name changes.

A major strength in the collection for researchers lies in the records of the individual churches, which often include birth, marriage, and death records, along with church histories and some photographs. Also of research value are the span of annual meeting programs and minutes, which help trace the history of the organization(s) from 1881 to 1999, with few gaps. Finally, for those interested in the history of congregationalism in North Dakota and the history of church organizations, the continuity of records from the earliest years to the present are of considerable value. From mission work and the initial incorporation of local churches to the grouping of those churches underneath a mother organization; from changes in organizational structure, the incorporation of religious organizations and philosophies, to finally a unified regional organization, helps to illuminate the full history of religion generally, and congregational churches specifically, in North Dakota.
