By June 3, 2015No Comments

CHELAN, Wash.—Five generations of the Plew family will celebrate Austin Plew’s 95th birthday on June 17. John Greening, GARBC national representative, says, “He is one of those men who I think I would like to live and conduct myself like him!”

Dr. Austin Plew has long ties to the GARBC. “He has been a gracious, godly leader in our association,” says John’s wife, Daria. Plew was director of the Minnesota Regular Baptist Camp; president of the Fellowship of Baptists for Home Missions; director of development and trustee at Faith Baptist Bible College; and a council member for the New York, Iowa, and Minnesota state GARBC fellowships.

He also pastored Calvary Baptist Church, Rochester, Minnesota; Burton Avenue Baptist Church, Waterloo, Iowa; Maine (New York) Baptist Church; and First Baptist Church, Elyria, Ohio, where he was pastor to seniors. In 1989 Baptist Bible College and Seminary named him alumnus of the year.

Those wishing to send cards and birthday greetings are invited to mail them to 22 Dietrich Rd., Chelan, WA 98816.
