In 1930, Mays and Joseph W. Nicholson received funding from the Institute of Social and Religious Research (ISRR) to study Negro churches. In 1933, Mays' proposal for a new study of the Negro's church was approved. The study was called “A Study of Representative Negro Churches: A pioneer study, covering a sample of urban and rural churches in both South and North, by B. E. Mays and J. W. Nicholson.”
