Bishop Paul Bolenbaucher an ordained UPCI minister and Church Planter, built this Church from the ground up in the late 1960's. He later called Brother Snyder asking him to preach a revival. Brother Snyder had been praying for an answer at that time concerning leaving the evangelistic field. God answered!
Pastor and Sister Snyder settled down in Dalton, GA where they would raise their three children. Through many trials and victories they held the Church in faithfulness. Pastor Snyder celebrated 40 years as Pastor in 2017.
Sister Snyder worked full time teaching at the established Christian school. She served faithfully nearly 40 years giving her all for the salvation of many. We honor in remembrance Sister Snyder who was promoted to her ultimate victory January 2017. Click here for her Memorial Page.
The impact of this Church to surrounding areas, and the world for Jesus Christ cannot be measured. Through the years the Church has been a shining beacon of truth to all generations. Many are eternally grateful for this Church , it's Godly Leadership, and determination to never give up! She has been called a "training ground, a boot camp for God's toughest Christians." and "one of the Revival epicenters of the end of the age!" The First United Pentecostal Church of Dalton continues to preach the whole Gospel to the Whole World spreading truth to future generations, Amen.
