The fifty-first session of the Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Association was held at Providence Baptist Church in Lincolnton, NC. The Moderator's Address was given by Rev. F. L. Howell. Dr. Yancy C. Elliot welcomed the Association on behalf of the white, local churches. A special collection was made to donate to Shaw University. Union Baptist Church, Edwards Chapel, Mount Zion, and Mount Pisgah were received into the Association. The Education Committee recommended to the body that each church send two students (a boy and girl) to the Western Union Academy, Bible Institute, in Spindale, NC as well as sending students to Shaw University.
