About Our Pastor

Pastor Bill South and Wife Deborah Young

We'd love to tell you about our Pastor, Bill South. Pastor South was saved on April 19, 1981, at Faith Baptist Church in Lexington, KY, under the preaching of Dr. Don Strange.

Pastor South attended Hyles-Anderson College in Hammond, IN, for the first part of his college education and then transferred to Tabernacle Baptist Bible College in Greenville, SC, where he also met and married his wife, Deborah Young. 

He graduated in May of 1990 with a Bachelor of Theology degree. He is also the recipient of a 2018 honorary doctorate from Tabernacle Baptist Bible College.

God allowed Pastor South the privilege of working with Pastor Jack Holden at Fellowship Baptist Church in Duncan, SC, for two years before moving him and his family to East Bernstadt, KY, to pastor Calvary Baptist Temple. He was there for six years until God again moved the South family to Grace Baptist Church, where he pastored from March 1998 until August 2014. On July 30th, 2014, Pastor South accepted the call from Pleasant View Baptist Church to be our pastor.


Pastor South and Deborah have three children and two grandsons. Daughter Rebekah is married to David Viers. They have two sons, Colton and Rorke, and live in Taylors, where they attend and serve at Pleasant View Baptist Church. Sons Robert and Timothy are faithful in the various ministries of our church.
