- Biographical or historical data
- Cowardin Avenue Christian Church began with an 1878 initiative of the Young Men's Missionary Society of Seventh Street Christian Church to plant a Disciple Church in Manchester (now part of Richmond), Virginia. The congregation initially met in a room of Owen's Hall on Hull Street, presided over by the Rev. J. Z. Tyler, pastor of Seventh Street Church. In 1889, the Young Men's Missionary Society purchased property at the corner of Cowardin Avenue and Barry Street. They built the church's first building there, dedicated on 16 November 1890. I. J. Spencer was called to be the pastor of the nascent congregation of thirty-one members. On 11 December 1890, the church building was almost entirely destroyed by fire. A new building was dedicated at the same site on 31 May 1891. An addition to the building was made in 1906, and an adjoining dwelling was purchased in 1924 to house the Sunday School. Over the years, the church was headed by pastors C. O. Woodward, F. W. Long, E. B. Motley, and Marion B. Brinson. In 1928, the congregation had grown to include approximately 450 members.
