(BAPTIST PRESS) -- Kentucky pastor Steve Ayers has reached a milestone that has Christians across the state taking notice: 10,000 baptisms since he arrived at Hillvue Heights Church.
Since becoming pastor of the Bowling Green congregation in 1991, Ayers has seen the church grow from 30 people into a megachurch where 5,000 people regularly attend Sunday morning services.
"The evangelistic success of Hillvue is nothing short of miraculous," Kentucky Baptist Convention Executive Director Paul Chitwood said. "We celebrate every soul saved and pray God gives a harvest of 10,000 more."
