Sunday evening, Marth 28th, 2021 Orrville Baptist Church, in the Buckeye Central—Erie Baptist Association, held a Deacon Ordination Service. As an added highlight to the service, Brother Harry Moore was recognized by the church and the State Convention of Baptists in Ohio as an Honorary Life Deacon. Brother Harry has served as a deacon of nearly 60 years. He was saved during a fall revival held at Orrville Baptist Church in 1960. On February 11, 1962 the church ordained Brother Harry, along with other men into the deacon ministry. Brother Harry has had an impact on the lives of many, all while serving quietly, without fanfare, yet with distinction for six decades, a milestone that few achieve. The church also ordained four new men into the deacon ministry. Brothers Ron Bowman, Dean French, Femi Olugbemiro and Dave Santmyer. The full service can be viewed at orrvillebaptist.org or on the Orrville Baptist Facebook page.
