Research shows that since our inception several "unofficial" names have been used to identify the First Apostolic Council. Historically people across the country have been unclear about the exact designation of this great body.
This fact is evidenced by information gleaned from some of the oldest references in print. Prior to our official charter information being submitted to the secretary of state, some of the (unofficial) names included:
- The First Kentucky Council
- The Kentucky and Middle Tennessee Council
- The First Apostolic Council of Kentucky and Middle Tennessee
Although in the past these names loosely identified our ministerial boundaries, none of them were officially adopted by the F.A.C. general body except for the following:
(ca.)1909 to 1923 The Louisville Assembly
1923 to 1939 The Kentucky State Council
1939 to 1945 The First Apostolic Council of Kentucky
1945 to 1971 The First Apostolic Council of Kentucky & Tennessee
June 1971 to present The First Apostolic Council of Kentucky & Tennessee (P.A.W.), Inc.
Note: the word "Middle" has never officially been part of the council's name.
