According to the May 25, 1854, issue of The Alabama Baptist, a committee of the Alabama Baptist State Convention to provide relief and support to “worn out ministers and the families of those deceased” made its first report after meeting in Selma. Key to providing relief was that the church last served by the pastor had to contribute at least $100 for relief of ministers.
