The Jean Stone Willans and Richard J. Willans Collection, 1943-2010 covers approximately 1961-2004, with some earlier documents from Jean and Rick's family histories. The collection documents the history of Jean Stone's and Rick Willans' leadership in the charismatic renewal from the moment of its beginnings at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Van Nuys where Jean Stone was a member. The collection includes documents concerning the first organization and first publication of the movement, both initiated by Jean. The core of the collection is the complete run of Jean and Rick's newsletters while on mission in Indonesia and Hong Kong, which recount the history of their ministry. This is supplemented by a large correspondence file and several boxes of photos, documents and mementos covering the years 1967 to 1984, as well as documentation of the Memorial which was erected in Kowloon in honor of their contribution there. Also included in the collection are photos, letters, documents and mementos of a personal nature which shed light on the early character and spiritual development of both Jean and Rick. Finally there are documents covering their continuing ministry histories after the return from Hong Kong in 1984 and a collection of letters from their daughter Suzy, married and living in Britain.

The collection contains correspondence, published and unpublished works, photographs, music texts, memorabilia, scrapbooks, and other materials documenting the Willanses life and ministry.
