The Central Committee on the United Study of Missions was an interdenominational Protestant group founded in 1900 by the Federation of Women's Boards of Foreign Missions. The organization included Methodists, Congregationalists, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, and Baptists at the start, incorporating Dutch Reformed and Lutherans later. The group commissioned mission study texts and sponsored mission study conferences and workshops. Between 1912 and 1915, the group changed its name to the Central Committee on the United Study of Foreign Missions. The CCUSFM merged into the Mission Education Movement and published its last book in 1938. Women and Social Movements International holdings include five Central Committee publications focused on women's missionary activities between 1904 and 1933. Show more Show less 1900 3
