The Rich & Inspiring History of Seventh-day Adventist Church in Winter Park
The church building was completed, occupied, and dedicated in 1955, under the leadership of Elder C.B. Rock, who succeeded Elder Barker as district pastor.
The present Swoope Avenue site was chosen and purchase was completed in November, 1978.
In September, 1979, with Elder Edson Jackson leading out as general contractor, and with the assistance of Ercil Jackson, construction began on a six thousand (6000) square foot facility that served as our church home for the next eighteen (18) years.
On August, 28, 2001, after much sacrifice and hard work, after much heartache and disappointment, after many dangers, toils and snares, after a last minute storm that knocked out the power and dashed our hopes, God led us “out of the wilderness” and into our present home. We celebrated the goodness of God with a grand opening service on September 28, 2000.
Pastor Lindsay Syeh is the third Associate Pastor and second female Pastor in Patmos Chapel’s illustrious history.
