    ( Larry Dean Proctor Born: August 27, 1943 Age: 28 Married to: Patricia Chaney Proctor Children: Linda Ellen - 3 years old

    Dean Chaney - 9 months old (6/23/68) (2/7/71)

    I was born in Cleveland Memorial Hospital in Shelby, North Carolina but moved to Columbia, South Carolina when I was small and lived most of my life there. After I married, I lived in Salisbury, North Carolina, my wife's hometown ..

    I was saved in October, 1962 and was licensed to preach from Westside Baptist Church, West Columbia, South Carolina in 1965. I didn't commit my all to Christ until February of 1969. This happened at a Laymen's Witness at Gardner-Webb College. F~om that day on I have put the Lord first in everything I do.

    My schooling: Brookland-Cayce High School, Cayce, South Carolina. Gardner-Webb College, Boiling Springs, North Carolina (I am now back at Gardner-Webb. Before I was not really school, but now I feel I have matured spiritually and am to do my best.)

    Graduated, 1962. 1962-1965

    serious about really determined

    ( From 1965 - 1971 I was in sales work, mostly in Salisbury, North Carolina. I worked in insurance, r-e t a i.L business, plant work. I went through quite a number- of jobs in 5 years, but the Lord was working in me trying to get. me to see that I am called to preach. All of these jobs contributed to my finding God's will for my life, and they helped me really get experience in dealing with all types of people and their problems.

    Through the Holy Spirit leading, I helped form an evangelistic team called the Soul Seekers. Giving Christ Jesus all the glory, there have been over 600 souls saved in the revivals the team has held. I have dealt with all types of problems from marital to drug addictions. I also served as interim pastor for Yadkin Baptist Church in Salisbury for two_and one-half months this past summer.

    Due to much prayer anq meditation my family and I have felt God moving us into the area of pastorial ministry. My ministry is evangelistic, which means the church I pastor and I, through the leading of the Holy Spirit, will strive toge~her to reach every portion of the Church Community·through these five emphases: (1) worship (2) witness (3) ministry (4) education (5) application As you s~e, this calls for fulltime ministry. I am willing to do this.· I am willing to relocate anywhere.

    Fellow Christian,

    Because there seems to be no real meaning in life. People are for something, but havent t, realized trat it is someone they need.

    The world. is sayang "Peace , Man, Peace ,!' but peace doesn't come from xLs and marches. The peace the world is searching for isntt nan-made ..

    The real need is the peace that Jesus promised in~ 14::27 '":". -". ur am ing you with a gift-peace of mind and heart 1 And the peace I give isntt J. like the peace the world gives. So dontt, be' troubled or afraid.11

    are coming to the realization that Jesus is the way, the t.ruth, and are proclaim; ng his promise.

    He, the young people at Zion are being turned on by Christ. We wantt to you join us ,in a 11Hap;eening for Christ,11 June ll and ending June 1.3.

    llany young people will be participating i'.I1 the services:
