Over the last two weeks, I spent some time in both California and Kentucky in the United States. Whilst the time was fairly limited, I was able to undertake some further research on Arthur W. Pink and his U.S. Pastorates, specifically in both of the aforementioned States.
To give you a snippet of where A.W. Pink was chronologically. Outside of his first pastorate in Silverton, Colorado (1910-1912) and his pastorate in Northside Baptist Church, in South Carolina (1917-1920), this is where he was based and the time period when he was there.
First Baptist Church of Garden Grove, CA (October 1912-November 1913)
Albany Baptist Church & Burkesville Baptist Church, KY (1915)
Scottsville Baptist Church, KY (March, 1916-June 1917)
Pink then went to pastor Northside Baptist Church in Spartanburg, South Carolina until 1920. Thereafter, he went into itinerant preaching and teaching, particularly in California. In 1929, Pink returned to the United States after two pastorates in Sydney, Australia, and a trip back home to the United Kingdom, and was based at Mortons Gap Baptist Church, between May 1929 to May 1930, where C. D. Cole was the minister.
Outside of the above photos, I was able to glean some additional information which adds to the research that I have accumulated, to which I am immensely grateful. I am particularly indebted to the pastoral team at Scottsville Baptist Church; Ben Stratton, a historian with the J.H. Spencer Historical Society; and Wade Whitcomb, the Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Garden Grove.
It is also helpful to note that many of the church photos above are of buildings which were built after A.W. Pink’s tenure. Whilst many records are now lost, there are still items in each which would hearken back to Pink’s time.
