Indiana United Methodist Church

Historical information about the United Methodist Church as well as instructions on the transfer of Indiana United Methodist Church church records to the DePauw University Archives and Special Collections.

Why transfer records?

What we know about the history of the United Methodist Church in Indiana comes from the written records of the past, saved in the DePauw University Archives and Special Collections. Future historians will learn of the institution through records which the Archives collects and preserves today. Frequently, valuable records are lost or destroyed by accident or natural disasters such as fires or floods. The DePauw University Archives and Special Collections provides a secure and climate-controlled environment for preservation of these historical records. 

We also serve local church and district offices by relieving staff of inactive files and by providing a central source of information about people, events and buildings of the Church. For more information, please read the Archives of DePauw University and Indiana United Methodism overview, collection scope, and instructions for records transfers located in the navigation to the left.
