On September 5, 1993, a wonderful event took place in Danville, Virginia. Two churches (Southall Baptist and Lynn Haven Baptist) joined together to form Westover Baptist Church. This merger included 235 charter members. Dr. Doug Barber, pastor of Southall Baptist, became the senior pastor and Rev. Robert Vermillion, pastor of Lynn Haven Baptist became the co-pastor. Thus began the history of an exciting ministry. Many special activities have taken place since that time to continue this spirit of unity.
