News update:
It seems like so much has been left undone over the last two years since being diagnosed with a cancer. With great praise to God, that battle appears now to be won, Lord willing, and things are returning to normal. Work is getting caught up and I can see progress on several fronts.
Next up is a reworking of this web site. Please consider this new home page as temporary. There are also new pages for the Center's manuscript and miscellany collections, as linked from the left-hand column. More content for these collections will be filled in over the coming months.
General Assembly:
The 45th General Assembly of the PCA meets June 13-16 in Greensboro, NC. Dr. George Robertson will bring the retiring moderator's sermon at the opening of this year's Assembly.

The Significance of Westminster Theological Seminary Today.
Dr. Clair Davis has recently presented us with a brief anecdotal history of Westminster Theological Seminary. Though some may disagree with portions of his account, this will still make for interesting reading, and we're pleased to make it available. Now retired, Dr. Davis served as professor of church history at Westminster from 1966-2004. He was ordained by the Presbytery of Wisconsin (OPC) in 1963 and was received into the PCA in 1988.

The Historical Center of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) is a ministry of the PCA Stated Clerk’s Office, with facilities located in St. Louis, Missouri on the campus of Covenant Theological Seminary. Our mission is to document the story of the conservative Presbyterian movement of the 20th & 21st centuries.

The Historical Center serves as the official archives of the Presbyterian Church in America, housing the records of the PCA and its agencies. The Center also serves as the repository of record for four other Presbyterian denominations. In addition, the Center houses the manuscript collections of over 100 people connected with those denominations, plus history materials for some 700 congregations. A modest research library of about 5,000 titles, covering all aspects of American Presbyterianism, augments the Center’s archival collections. 

The Historical Center is located at 478 Covenant Lane, St. Louis, MO 63141.
It is normally open to researchers Monday-Friday, 9 AM – 5 PM, and Saturdays by appointment.
Patrons may also choose to contact the Center’s staff by phone, (314) 469-9077 or by email :[email protected]
