According to the minutes of (the Baptist Church of Malvern) May 8th, 1858, Robert Dunlap was asked to supply the Church until April 1859. Brother Dunlap was ordained in the Willistown Baptist Church, October 26th, 1858, Reverend A. H. Taylor preaching the sermon and Reverend George M. Pratt offering the ordaining prayer.

Reverend Robert Dunlap served the Church for a little more than three years. During his pastorate, a uniform system of contributions to benevolent objects was adopted, very much the same as is being used at the present time.
