Sam Baer, the long-time pastor of Victory Mountain Grace Brethren Church in Dryhill, Ky., would like to retire. The congregation is seeking his replacement — a younger man who can lead the aging congregation with solid Bible teaching. The position offers plenty of room for growth, including a thriving children’s ministry.
The church is historic in the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches. Started in the early 1950s by the late Evelyn Fuqua, who was later joined by the late Elaine Polman Brenneman, it was a mission point for many years. It has been considered self-supporting since the 1980s but continues to rely on donations and gifts from outside the region. Once a thriving coal mining community, the area has been impacted economically by the closing of the mines.
Sam describes the congregation as sweet and loving and committed to continuing the ministry.
The church is located in the Appalachian Mountains of southeastern Kentucky, near Hyden, in picturesque Leslie County.
