G.V. Hosts Gospel Meeting

In the summer of 1979, G.V. hosted an area-wide gospel meeting held in the Goodrell J.H. auditorium. Gordon Fergeson was the speaker, and the event was well attended by brethren in the area. During this first year (summer 1979) GV joined forces with Hickman and conducted an evangelistic campaign across the north half of Des Moines. The follow-up results were very minimal because all the records were not retained by Jon Bailey when he left town. Jon resigned on October 31, 1979. In anticipation of his departure, Preston Road had been consulted and they assured us of their continued support. Another joint campaign with Hickman was conducted in the summer of 1981.
