Administrative history

The Evangelism and Social Service Associate Secretaries were officers of the national Board of Evangelism and Social Services at work in the Conferences. The duties of the Board were to provide leadership in the promotion of evangelism and the development of the spiritual life and work of the Church, and to oversee redemptive and child welfare institutions, and homes for the aged. Hugh Dobson was a Field Secretary under the Methodist Board of Evangelism and Social Service from 1913-1925, and Associate Secretary of Evangelism and Social Service in the B.C. Conference from 1925-1951.
