Dr. Garrison will speak July 23-25 and Dr. Williams will speak July 26-27. These are two of our nations most widely sought after preachers and we are blessed to have them. Friday night, the final night of Campmeeting will be “Youth Night”. This year, we will be streamlining our services in order to focus on three things; Worship, the Word, & the Altar. The Sunday night service will begin at 6:00 pm and the rest of the week services will begin at 7:00 pm. Our intention is to move many of the ceremonies, recognitions and such to Sunday night at 6:00 pm so that we can allow plenty of time the rest of the week for the spiritual benefits of campmeeting and get folks home at a reasonable hour each night.

PFWB Dunn Camp Meeting History

-Excerpt from The Messenger, Nov/Dec 2009 Issue

We trace our first Camp Meeting back into the 1930s at the Watha Camp Grounds near Wallace, NC. Three men, J. Richard Parker, Arby Carter (Dr. Herbert Carter’s father), and Alfred Sivie Blanton (Myrtle Holder’s father) led the way in purchasing property in the Watha area (across from the Watha Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Church) for the purpose of annual Camp Meeting services. The property was used as a campground for the youth and Camp Meeting for many years. There remain until this day many across our denomination that can trace their spiritual birth and special calling into ministry to those grounds. It will always be a place with special memories for a generation of PFWB people.

In 1961 we had our first Dunn Camp Meeting in a small auditorium that today is used as the chapel of Heritage Bible College. For the next three years Camp Meeting was continued in the small auditorium of Heritage House. At the same time the Watha Camp Meeting was maintained for several years. In 1964 the Dunn Camp Meeting was moved from the small auditorium to our current Tabernacle. The Tabernacle was not the completed building we see today. It is much more comfortable today than in those early years. It is difficult to imagine the dreams, labor, and effort it has taken to develop and promote an annual Camp Meeting. God has favored us many times with His blessings and, as needed, miracles to make sure our people have a Camp Meeting. We have experienced some of the best and greatest Camp Meetings with some of the greatest ministers in the world. Many from our generation can testify to having special spiritual encounters with God that changed them for the rest of their lives as a result of Camp Meetings.
