Carbon copy of letter from Dawson Trotman to C. J. Jenkins, June 6, 1949. Trotman was the founder of the Navigators, an evangelistic organization that placed heavy emphasis on discipleship, Bible memorization and study. Trotman was one of the people charged with developing a method for providing converts and inquirers at the meetings with counseling and information about the Christian life. I.A. “Daddy” Moon was in charge of “personnel work,” which meant recruiting volunteers to be counselors, training them, and supervising them as they worked in the “counseling tent” during the meetings. Rev. Fred Flora assisted him. C. J. Jenkins was the executive director of the Christ for Greater Los Angeles Committee. This letter shows the early stages of planning the counseling program. From the Records of the Navigators, Collection 7, box 1, folder 2.
