2nd Annual Phelps Area Revival--Pastor Joseph Griffis (left) and Pastor Tim Charlton (right)
Pastor Steve Spurlock was called of God to the Phelps, KY area in late 2010 as a member of Victory Baptist Church in Pikeville, KY. Pastor Steve started in Phelps by holding services at the Good Shepherd Nursing Home and by holding the first ever Annual Phelps Area Revival in June 2011 at the old Phelps Elementary School gym. The school graciously allowed the meeting in both 2011 & 2012.
While getting fliers out for the 2012 meeting, Pastor Steve ran across a vacant double wide near the Phelps Fire Department. Faith Missionary Baptist Church started holding regular services there on Oct. 4, 2012 and took over hosting the Annual Phelps Area Revival in 2013.
Pastor Steve and the Faith Missionary Baptist Church merger were voted on by the membership at Delorme Bible Church on June 8, 2016 and the official name of the revival was changed to the Annual Hatfield McCoy Area Revival. This revival is now hosted at Delorme Bible Church and is held during the 3rd week of June.
We would love to have you and your family join us for any of our services or special events. We typically have special music and refreshments at each of our events.
If you have questions or need more information, please contact Pastor Steve.
In 1935, Jeannette Boyd graduated from Moody Bible Institute and came to the Delorme, WV/Phelps, KY area as a missionary telling people about Jesus and teaching children in the many schools around the Tug Valley area. It wasn't long before she was able to start teaching Sunday School classes on the current property of Delorme Bible Church in an old converted beer store. In 1958, Ms. Boyd was able to purchase the property for the church. In 1973, construction was started and Delorme Bible Church was chartered in 1974.
During the last weekend of September each year, Delorme Bible Church celebrates Homecoming Weekend to remember their heritage and past members who have gone home to be with the Lord. Now, the last Saturday in September is celebrated as "Founders Day" and special recognition is given to past pastors, deacons, and soldiers of the faith such as Ms. Boyd.
2018 marked our 60th Anniversary of owning the property. Although Ms. Boyd and others were utilizing the property long before, we recognize October 1958 as the official beginning of Delorme Bible Church. Founders Day is a day of food, music, fellowship, testimonies, and preaching in our outdoor tabernacle. We had a tremendous time with several preachers and singers. Even the baptismal waters were stirred! Be sure to join us this year!
