Pleasant Hill Church Charter Members


Pleasant Hill Baptist Church is located in the Sunnybrook community in the southwest corner of Wayne County, Kentucky.  The church and cemetery stand on a hill above Hwy 200 and the valley of Carpenter's Fork of Otter Creek, obscured from the road by trees, and surrounded by pastureland, with a beautiful view of the mountains.  It is a serene location for serving the present congregation of approximately 120 members.  Many of these members are direct descendants of the Revolutionary War soldiers and other early pioneers who came from Virginia and the Carolinas in the early 1800's and settled or passed through Wayne county.

  The church was founded in June 1841 with 29 charter members who desired a place to worship near their homes.  They were "given up" by Otter Creek Church of United Baptists (now Gap Creek) in Wayne County and by Clear Fork Baptist Church which was across the mountain in Clinton County.
