Other States Organize

October 1861

When the Review that reported the meeting of the Michigan Conference came to the hands of J. N. Andrews, who was working in Minnesota, he took the matter of organization to a conference held there. Soon Ohio followed, through the efforts of M. E. Cornell.

Because the believers in most states moved rather promptly into full organization, James White expressed his concern in the Review over the peril of inexperienced persons attempting to lead out in organizing local churches. This was followed by an article from Loughborough titled "Church Discipline".
