Former HGTV reality show star speaks at Lake Park Pavilion

David Benham 10COSHOCTON – Nine years ago Pastor Bill Dunfee from New Beginnings Ministry felt called by the Lord to go to the most evil place he knew and make sure Jesus is lifted up, families are protected and marriages are encouraged. He instantly knew that the Foxhole was where he needed to go. “Some may ask what the big deal is, but hearts’ of husbands are being stolen from wives and hearts’ of fathers are being robbed from children,” Dunfee said. “We aren’t protesting there. We are presenting the Gospel….and showing them that Jesus is the answer to their problems.” He believes in sharing the word of the Lord and being a light in dark places. David and Jason Benham also believe in standing behind the Bible, but their beliefs unfortunately cost them a show with HGTV. David spoke to a crowd Oct. 28 at Lake Park Pavilion about standing up for traditional/biblical values. He especially addressed a group of students from Coshocton Christian School and encouraged them not to fall for society’s current agenda to silence people of faith. “On Facebook and Twitter my brother and I are very vocal about our Christian beliefs,” David said. “We are pro Jesus, pro Bible and pro value.” More than 100 people attended the second session of David’s presentation and close to 100 were at the first one, which was for pastors, their wives and other key leaders in the local church community. The event was sponsored by Citizens for Community Values, Tsunami Software and Tri-Valley Family Practice. Pictured is David Benham addressing the crowd.
