Abstract: Eastbrook Church was founded in 1979 by members of Elmbrook Church in Whitefish Bay who sought to create a new congregation on Milwaukee’s East Side. Evangelization has played a central role in Eastbrook’s mission from the very beginning.

Dr. Marc Erichson, Eastbrook’s first pastor and an ex-missionary, led the church for more than 30 years until his retirement in 2011. Much of Eastbrook’s missionary work has concentrated on reaching Muslims in Africa and the Middle East.

Scope and Content: Donated by prominent church member David Moberg, this collection contains primarily weekly service bulletins. Other documents of note include financial summaries, newsletters, church directories, obituaries, and information on Eastbrook’s programs and ministries. Moberg left handwritten notes on dozens of documents. Most of these notes make reference to the Bible and Christianity.

Language: English
