ARCHIVES

Welcome to the "archives" of Association of Former Pentecostals!  You may not think we've been around long enough to "archive" things, but -- believe it or not -- we have!

We have five sorts of archives on this site. This page hosts three of them: two old Yahoo! Discussion groups, and a newsletter currently on hiatus. Our discussion list archives created by our new forums are archived on that discussion board. Archives of our "guestbook" are archived on the guestbook page.

Our first discussion group is the old  "Azusa Street Survivors" discussion group on Yahoo!Groups.  It began on November 14, 2001 as "Ex-Apostolics" discussion group, but expanded its focus when it merged with another Yahoo!Group ("Ex-Pentecostals") to create the "Azusa" Group.  It attracted more than 250 members, carrying at least half that number at any given time.

It amassed over 5,000 messages in its year-and-a-half history.

The actual "group" itself is now part of the new "Azusa Street Survivors" group on our new "ezboard" forums (see "forums" in the top left menu).  The Yahoo!Group version of this support group has been closed down for messaging, but still accessible for browsing the messages.  To browse the archives of this "closed" forum, simply click the link below.  You will be required to create a FREE Yahoo!ID to "join" this forum and read its messages.

The second group that is archived actually had about half the members of the above, but actually beat it in messages.  "Pentecostal Debate" was started on Yahoo!Groups in April 2002 to compliment "Azusa Street Survivors" to allow debating and heated discussion (which was banned from the "Azusa" group).  It grew quickly, once having over 1,000 messages in one month's time.

The "Pentecostal Debate" forum was also carried over onto our new "ezboard" forums, and the heated discussions continue there as well.  The archives of this group are open to the public, no Yahoo!ID required.

In February of 2002, a newsletter for all former Pentecostals was created.  Initially, "Delivered!" newsletter was created as a quarterly, but as the news items increased, it became a monthly.  Due to time constraints, publications were ceased after a name change to "XPC-Examiner."  Stopping this successful publication was extremely painful, especially since it had our most successful subscription of all of our services -- it was delivered to over 200 individuals a month when it ceased.  All nine issues are archived below, and are just a click away!
