Very few laymen are aware of the fact that over the last 15 years there has been a secret organization in our Church working quietly behind the scenes to gain control of the political machinery of our denomination. This group, composed mostly of ministers, call themselves the Fellowship of St. James. This relatively small but very determined group influences and seeks to control the various agencies of the courts of our Church. In recent years they have succeeded in electing enough men of their choosing to enable them to control many of the important committees of the various Church courts and have effective majorities on the governing bodies of many of the boards, agencies and other institutions of the Church…The men in these groups have gained control of the machinery of our Church because we conservatives have been largely content to talk about these matters without setting up an effective organization through which to make our voices heard in the Church courts. While we have been talking, they have been doing.
