The International Depository of Clergy Libraries (IDCL) is a work in progress that envisions the establishment of a special place for the disolvement of retired or deceased clergy libraries of all denominations worldwide.

The IDCL's two-fold mission is to:

  • make the books given to the IDCL available free of charge to any seminary student for inclusion in their libraries and use in their ministries with the stipulation that upon their death or retirement they are returned to the IDCL unless given to another seminary student or pastor for their use; and

  • publish at least one of the best sermons of each clergy who participates in the IDCL in a series of special remembrances of their life's work in proclaiming through the ages the gospel of their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
