The Rev. Father Baron Deacon of Holy Cross Eastern Orthodox Church in Indian Land, above in the church’s small sanctuary, is the founder of the Academy of Exorcism. “I’m here to talk about what I know, and that’s about exorcisms and the supernatural,” Deacon said.
The Indian Land Exorcist

Holy Cross Eastern Orthodox Church in Indian Land is unique in a region that prefers its steeples and stained glass.
The church itself consists of little more than a tiny chapel in a converted garage attached to a nondescript cinderblock house, painted white, trimmed in light blue and crowned with an ornate brass cross.
You’d likely miss it passing by on Fort Mill Highway were it not for the small blue sign by the road, a sign that also indicates, if you catch it, there’s something even more unique about Holy Cross.
