The Germania/North Central Classis Archives document the corporate institutional life of a regional classis of the Reformed Church in America based in northwest Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota in the 20th century. The records include the minutes of the classis, church statistics, financial materials, and clergy records. Collectively, these archives provide evidence for the historical growth over almost fifty years of a multi-generational German-immigrant regional church organization affiliated with a Dutch Protestant denomination in the trans-Mississippi prairies and northern plains.
