Welcome to the Mercersburg Society
The Mercersburg Society was founded in 1983 to uphold the concept of the Church as the Body of Christ, Evangelical, Reformed, Catholic, Apostolic, organic, developmental, and connectional. The Society works to provide opportunities for fellowship and study for persons interested in Mercersburg Theology, to sponsor convocations, to engage in publication of articles and books, and to stimulate research and correspondence among scholars on topics of theology, liturgy, the sacraments, and ecumenism.
The Society’s Corporate Board meets on an annual basis at the opening of the Mercersburg Convocation to review the work of the Society and to offer direction and input to the Executive Committee on its ongoing work. The Executive Committee meets two to three times a year to conduct the business of the Society.

Rev. Dr. Maxwell was a member of our Presbytery, serving as pastor and then Pastor Emeritus of Newtown Square Presbyterian Church.
