OF PCA TEACHING ELDERS AND OTHERS

The list presented here is drawn from the biographical files at the PCA Historical Center. Obviously, the descriptions offered below touch only a small portion of a given individual's life. Our hope is that in posting these memorials, it will prompt the donation of others bulletins and related materials. For one, we are currently lacking bulletins for several of the TEs who died in the last year (2020).
