In 1958, the First Baptist Church of Dayton decided to support a new church project somewhere in the South-of-Dayton area. During the months of planning under the sponsoring committee of First Baptist Church, and in conjunction with the American Baptist Mission Society in the field of Church Extension, the Rev. Theodore (Ted) K. Pitt was appointed to serve as the first pastor. The first formal service of Dorothy Lane American Baptist Church was held February 1, 1959 at 10:00 a.m. in the auditorium of the Southdale School, Kettering, Ohio.
