One of the local newspapers, The Good News Journal, annually polls it's readership to ask them to vote for their "favorite" local businesses, people, etc. It covers about 30 categories, such as favorite car dealership; favorite steakhouse; favorite auto parts store, etc.
This year the Flat Rock Pentecostal Holiness Church was voted "Favorite Church for 2016" and Pastor David Sparks was voted "Favorite Pastor for 2016."
Pastor Sparks wrote to the newspaper: "We are humbled by and grateful for this recognition."
