Pastor- Bro. Gary Dawson


I grew up on a farm in Todd County, Ky.  My father is a deacon and my mother is a fine, Christian lady.  I was saved at the age of 13 at New Cedar Grove Baptist Church during a revival with Bro. Joe Carrico.  I was Baptized in a pond a week or so later and became a member of the church.  At the age of 15, I formed a gospel group made up of teenagers.  We sang at the old singing conventions, revival meetings, and homecomings.

A few years later, I asked a pretty girl (Debi Ballard) from Antioch to sing with us.  It wasn’t too long afterwards that I fell in love with her.  We married between my junior and senior year of college at Western Kentucky University.  I also sensed a call to the ministry about the same time and surrendered to the ministry two months after we were married.

I have both preached and sang over the years and currently enjoy ministering at Green Ridge, preaching revivals, writing, and helping with various ministries.
