Scope and Content Note

One folder of typed radio sermons by Earl Irvin West, minister at the Irvington Church of Christ in Indianapolis. These materials were produced by the church for distribution.

Biographical Note

Irvington Church of Christ is now Southeastern Church of Christ. The following history is excerpted from Southeastern Church of Christ’s website:

“The congregation can trace its history back to the 1920's and the Eastside Church of Christ, which was later named Irvington Church of Christ in 1937. The congregation moved to the current property in 1964 to have space to grow and to provide room to build several homes that could be used for children's homes as well church facilities and areas for sports and congregational fellowship. The congregation has a long history of love and care for children with their children's homes which later evolved into foster homes, and a pre-school that is well known and greatly appreciated in southeastern Indianapolis.

In addition, the congregation has an involved children's ministry as well as a strong youth emphasis. Southeastern also has a heritage in international missionary outreach in Africa, Europe, and Asia. We also make mission and service trips to Honduras, enjoying a long relationship with Mission Lazarus.

Southeastern has been blessed to have a long legacy of good preaching. Men like David Gaylor, Bob Herndon, and Greg York, have been some of the outstanding preachers who have blessed us. Currently, Lyle Asbill serves as our Senior Minister and preaches most Sundays.”
