Oberlin (OH), Negro, Church, Churches, Church life, Community


This thesis is the result of a study which represents an interest in a group of ill-adjusted community churches. For a long time I have been interested in the Negro and his church life here in Oberlin. While the background out of which these churches grew and the environment in which they operate are superior in many ways to those of most communities, the churches themselves are definitely sub-model.

My ultimate objective has been to investigate the aforesaid topic with the hope of discovering problems that are preventing the churches from expanding and serving the community, as well as to help them find a way to render a more effective service.
