The Historical Center of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) is a ministry of the PCA Stated Clerk’s Office, located in St. Louis, Missouri on the campus of Covenant Theological Seminary. Our mission is to preserve the records of the Presbyterian Church in America and to document the story of the conservative Presbyterian movement of the 20th & 21st centuries. In addition to the records of the PCA, the Center also serves as the repository of record for four other conservative 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.
