Many people have been touched by Falwell's preaching and one of them is the pastor of First Baptist Springdale and The Church At Pinnacle Hills, Dr. Ronnie Floyd.
Floyd grew up watching Falwell on television and later became close friends with the evangelist. They got to know one another in 1988 when Falwell preached to Floyd's congregation in Springdale. Later, Floyd became involved with Liberty University.
Floyd spoke to KNWA about his relationship with Falwell and called the longtime pastor, "one of my heroes".
