The Life and Ministry of George Washington Mefford : A Pioneer Preacher in the Christian Church
George Washington Mefford (1818-1898) was a circuit-riding pioneer preacher for what was known as "The Christian Church," affiliated with the Christian Connection/Connexion movement, during the mid- to late-nineteenth century. George Washington Mefford was based near Levanna, Brown County, Ohio, just steps from the Ohio River. His ministry consisted of preaching in small churches, in small towns, up and down the banks of the Ohio River valley. This book offers information about The Christian Connection/Connexion movement, The Stone-Campbell movement, The Christian Church, and The Disciples of Christ. This book contains George Washington Mefford's writings from his personal journals, pictures, letters, and other documents that verify who he was and his connection to the early pioneer Christian Church as families migrated west across the United States into what was once known as the Northwest Territory.
