Fred Whitehead was ordained by the Bishop of Southwell as Assistant Curate to the Vicar in Nottingham in 1902. His ministry in the Church of England continued for thirty-seven years. No information was discovered regarding his birth or death dates.
This journal is a handwritten account of Fred Whitehead's spiritual
journey up to his ordination in the Church of England in 1902. He
titles his journal, "From the Counter to the Pulpit: The story of my training
for the Priesthood, 1889-1902 - A Record of Divine Guidance". Whitehead
refers to his "ministry of 37 years" toward the end of his account, which
indicates that the journal was probably written about 1939. In the
journal he writes in great detail about his struggle between working in
the secular business environment and working with various missions and
youth organizations to provide spiritual guidance to adolescents.
