Sunday May 27 through Wednesday May 30 revival services will be under the big tent. South Dayton has called Dr. Terry VanBuskirk to officiate this event. Along with Doc Van several other speakers will be preaching as well. They include former pastor Kenneth Leach and Dr. Terrell Hudson pastor of Moraine Heights Baptist Church. Their very own Pastor Steve Thornhill and Evangelist Michael Adams will also be speaking. Several area musicians will be singing praise and worship music.
South Dayton Baptist Church was started 56 years ago by a tent revival held on their grounds. The old West Moraine Baptist Church was holding their own tent revival and needed space to do so. They were advised of the empty lot across town in a newer neighborhood. Upon seeing the lot they knew it would be a perfect place to host the revival. The neighborhood had such a great outpouring of people attending each night that West Moraine Baptist Church knew they could not leave the people empty handed. Thus the start of South Dayton Baptist Church. Originally know as Gethsemane Baptist Church it was the first plant church of West Moraine Baptist Church. West Moraine grew exceedingly and eventually moved and changed their name to Moraine Heights Baptist Church. Pastor Travis Hudson was the original pastor and now his son Terrell Hudson pastors the church.
The key speaker will by Doc Van who is traveling in from Taylorsville, Utah. Doc Van spent many years as a country music singer until he gave his life to God. Now he is the administrative vice-president of Salt Lake Bible College and president of Salt Lake Baptist Bible College online. Doc Van travels each summer from the Gulf of Mexico to the Gulf of Alaska preaching revival services and using his musical talents. He has preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ for over 25 years, in churches, revivals and on the streets.
