The Baptist and Reflector is your state newspaper. Their goal is to share the stories of Tennessee associations and churches.  They want to be as current as possible, especially with obituaries. If a pastor or minister (either current or retired) in your church passes away, please let them know as soon as you can, and, if possible, send us the local obituary or provide the funeral home and they can take it from there.  
The Church Subscription Plan form that enables churches to order subscriptions for only $10 per subscription, is a savings of $5 over the individual rate. They can e-mail you a form and you can make copies as needed.

Tennessee Baptist Historical Society wants to help churches preserve their history and important documents.  We are grateful to these good folks for preserving our past so we can move toward our future. Their partnership may help your church avoid the loss of valuable and irreplaceable historical records due to fire, water, damage, or just neglect.
The Tennessee Baptist Historical Society exists for the purpose of helping associations, churches, schools and other Tennessee Baptist entities to preserve important documents, photos, minutes and other cumulative and special records of historical significance. We encourage the proper safekeeping of such materials using standard archival methods. We will assist church and associational representatives in writing church and/or associational histories by planning seminars, workshops and consultations
whenever requested and possible within the scope of our abilities.
Below is a link to the Church Historical Contact Information Form, which asks for contact information on one or more persons in your church, who may be designated to receive information that we may share in order to facilitate the purposes stated above.
