Missionary Appropriations

Methodists are a missionary people. Soon after the Missouri Conference helped “plant” the first churches in the Kansas Territory, the Kansas Conference set mission goals to continue “sowing” seed money to establish more congregations. The document below from the 1891 Kansas Conference Journal reports those early efforts:


Atchison District

Powhattan 100
Junction City District
Bushong 40
Enterprise 40
Haddam 80
Hollenberg 50
Hope 40
Morganville and Idana 50
Skiddy 60
Wakefield 50
Washington Circuit 50
Leavenworth District
Armourdale 100
London Heights 100
McLouth 100
Michigan Avenue 75
