The Pleasant Valley Christian Church in Marion County is not only amazingly beautiful but it has an amazing history.

For one thing, in a span of almost 100 years there were only three pastors of this church. L. C. Young, a well known Adair County native from the Shiloh community preached at Pleasant Valley for over 40 years.

Recently DeLane Pinkston concluded a 40 plus year ministry at Pleasant Valley. Between the long ministries of these two individuals, a Bro. Davis from Louisville served the church.

I have preached several revival meetings at this church and the record still stands that it was here that I witnessed the greatest number of conversions during a revival in my fifty years of preaching.

There were over 30 people who made professions of faith during that revival. The place is well named and it is always a pleasant experience just to drive over and spend some time soaking in the beauty of this peaceful setting. - Paul Patton Comments re photo 48161 Scenic Marion County KY Pleasant Valley Christian Church
