Plymouth Heights Church of the Nazarene, 25 Arnett Drive (behind Green High School), Franklin Furnace, Ohio will be in revival with Rev. Brian Baer Sept. 19-21, 2013, with services beginning at 7 p.m. each evening.

Rev. Brian Baer currently Assistant Director with Calvin Ray Evans Evangelistic Outreach, became full time with Evangelistic Outreach in June 2001. Rev. Baer was saved at the age of five at the North Moreland Christian Baptist Church.

While in high school, the Lord was dealing with him on dedicating his life to the Lord and the ministry. In the summer of 1994, under the ministry of Calvin Ray Evans, Brian accepted the call to preach and delivered his first sermon Sept. 18, 1994. Brian has an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Engineering Drafting from Shawnee State University, and is an ordained minister with the Christian Baptist Association.

Rev Baer is also a graduate of the Stamps Baxter School of Music, where he learned theory and vocal technique from some of southern gospel’s well-known names, such as Brock and Ben Speer. He’s had opportunities to sing with professional groups and traveled for a year with Mike Blanton and Evidence. However, Rev. Baer’s first calling is to preach and the Lord has blessed him to be able to preach in many different areas.

Rev. Baer has lived by Romans 8:28, and is living proof “that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.”

The Mark Dubbeld Family consisting of Mark and his wife, Janene and their children, Vincent, Leighton, Elena, Channing and Britton will also be singing in the Saturday, Sept. 21 service. Mark has been singing gospel music for more than 25 years.

Homecoming services and dinner on the ground will be held Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013. Rev. R. C. McCray, Chaplain of the Adult Program at Ohio Christian University will speak in the 10:30 a.m. worship service. Rev. McCrary hails from a small community in southern Indiana, where he began in ministry as a teenager. By age 19, he had answered the call to pastoral ministry and has since given 55 years of his life to pastoral and evangelical service. Rev. McCrary notes the highlight of his ministry has been “working with students and youth.”

At 2:00 PM, following dinner on the ground, The Mark Dubbeld family will be in concert.

There will be no evening service. Rev. Andy Ramey, Pastor, cordially invites the public to attend. For further information call 740-354-9021.
