First Universalist Church Meeting Minutes, Apr 2, 1905 (Call Rev. Tyner as Pastor)

Atlanta, Ga. Apr 2, 1905

A meeting of the Board of Directors was held on Sunday evening after the preaching service.

Those present were: Dr. Shinn, Mr. Tyner, Messrs. Holdt, West, Marsh and Bond.  (See Archivist Note below)

It was voted to hold a meeting of the church on Monday evening April 10th for the purpose of deciding upon a pastor for the church and also for the election of officers for the ensuring year.

Brother Marsh offered the following resolution.

Resolve: That it is the sense of this board that we extend a pastoral call to the Rev Paul Tyner believing that he will prove a great help to us in building up our church and further believing that we will not be able to secure a better man.

This resolution was unanimously adopted.

Mention was made of the splendid series of meeting that had been held in our church by our Southern Missionary Dr. Shinn, who began on March 29th and ended tonight, delivering six good inspiring sermons.  It was voted to pay towards his traveling expense the sum of $15.00.

The Secretary was instructed to notify each member of the church of the meeting to be held on April 10th and urge them to be present.
