About the Book

In the early 1900s, thirty-five individuals left their current church to venture on a journey of starting a new church. This journey would change not only the community, but the lives of many. In Making a Difference in Our Father’s House, authors Bernice H. Eaton and Reverend Dr. Gregory E. Moore chronicle the history of the creation of Trinity Baptist Church in Fort Valley, Georgia.

Eaton and Moore pieced the history together from written and oral resources including financial records, the first warranty deed, programs, conference minutes, minute books, newspaper articles, correspondence, written and oral histories, books, manuscripts, and census records. It presents a look at everything from the church founders to its pastors and leadership, and its programs and outreach.

Making a Difference in Our Father’s House shows that throughout its history, the members demonstrated their faith, their hope, and their courage as they went about doing God’s will. They worked to make a better community for the people of Fort Valley and Peach County becoming known as the People’s Church.
