Christian Endeavor Convention, Nashville, June 1898

Christian Herald and Signs of Our Times, 29 June 1898.

Look for Joel Cheek, elder at Nashville’s Vine Street Christian Church and purveyor of good-to-the-last-drop coffee.  Two links, here and here, provide some more detail of the Cheek coffee story.  Go here to see his philanthrophy at work in East Tennessee at Milligan College.  T. A. Reynolds, another planning committee member, was minister at Woodland Street Christian Church.  Read closely to find out about Z. T. Sweeney’s part in the program.  As can be imagined, David Lipscomb was not too impressed by this convention.  Alas, I have mislaid his comments.  I trust they will turn up somehwere…sometime…somehow….  I have another item from this convention and when it turns up I will post it as well!

  1. I am pretty sure I gave a copy of the program to the Nashville Room many moons ago. Love Joel cheek. Have a small collEction of Maxwell House history…..

  2. The Cheeks were from the Murfreesboro area. One of Joel’s relatives, Tolbert Fanning Cheek (1833-1920) was an elder at First Christian in Birmingham.
