Capturing voices, preserving legacies: GCAH introduces oral history app

The General Commission on Archives and History (GCAH) announced Monday that it has been pilot-testing a new mobile app for recording and submitting oral histories. 

In a press conference, Dr. Ashley Boggan D., the Commission’s General Secretary, shared that the app, called United Methodist Stories, was developed exclusively by GCAH digital archivist Kevin Dusenberry. The app promises to usher in a new era of accessibility and efficiency in capturing and processing oral histories across the connection.

Rev. Molly Vetter of the California-Pacific Conference shared her experience using the app during General Conference, saying, “It’s satisfying to help capture what’s happening around the edges of, and in preparation for, General Conference.”
