Our History

History of the East Zion Consolidated District Association

The Zion District Association and the Eastern District Association both had their beginnings with God. The Zion District was organized in 1909; the Moderator was Rev. J. D. Provo, Pastor of the Fairview Baptist Church. Rev. E.W. Perry, Pastor of the Tabernacle Baptist Church, was the first Moderator of the Eastern District. In 1920 the two Moderators envisioned, almost simultaneously, that the unification of their forces and resources could accomplish what they could never accomplish alone. A merge was advocated, and the resultant organization became known as the East Zion Consolidated District Association.
 
With the consolidation of the two Districts, Rev. E. W. Perry served as the first Moderator and Rev. J. D. Provo served as the First Vice Moderator.
 
A firm foundation has been laid; let us continue to build there upon.
