Participating in the organization of the association were representatives from 13 churches (grouped by their county location): Mt. Pleasant and Ft. Clark (Gainesville) churches in Alachua County; Benton (later called Hernando) County churches of Bethesda, Eden, and Bethlehem; Columbia County churches of Columbia, Providence and South Prong; Bethel church in Duval County; Marion County churches of New Hope, Fellowship, and New Providence; and Sharon church (Callahan) in Nassau County.
