Pastor Larry Dyer
Reenacts St. Charles County Historical Christian Roots
Pastor Larry Dyer, will move back into historical times to
portray a Reverend from the early years of our nation,
interpreting religion on the American Frontier and Christian
influence on the early settlers of this area at the Annual Lewis
and Clark Encampment in the City of Saint Charles, on Saturday
and Sunday, May 16 & 17, 2009.
member of the Saint Charles Militia, a Reenactors group of St.
Charles County, Pastor Dyer will be dressed in period clothing
from the era of 200 years past. On Sunday morning at 9:00 AM, he
is slated to preach the annual sermon for the Lewis & Clark
encampment on the St. Charles riverfront, dressed in black linen
or wool period-clothing, powdered wig and all.
For the past 20 years, Pastor Dyer has enjoyed reenacting
18th century life on the early frontier of our nation. The study
of American History and its influence in our founding as a
Christian nation is one of his hobbies. He enjoys sharing the
historical facts that show that our country was founded as a
Christian nation. When he is not doing services that weekend,
you may find him at his exhibit on Trader's Row demonstrating
America's Heritage of Faith or passing out religious literature.
Pastor Dyer is known as "The Reenactor's Reverend." "I saw
the real spiritual needs that many in the reeanacting community
have and sought a way to help meet them," Dyer said. "They
really appreciate a fellow reenactor who loves history and
relates to those who are serious about portraying it."
In his preaching at events, Pastor Dyer aims to be
historically accurate without becoming irrelevant.
"I purposely don't simply read or preach historical sermons,
because the message of the Bible has to touch the individual
where he is today. Instead, I speak to reenactors as a fellow
enthusiast who understands their needs yet shares our hobby and
Although many reenactors will attend in period clothing, the
public is welcome at the Church Service in Riverfront Park, St.
Charles, Missouri at 9:00 AM. Period dress not required.
