Thanksgiving Countdown Continues…
Today I am so grateful for all those who have invested in me spiritually through my 55 years.
Far too many to name, but I will list a few.
My parents were the most influential,
my preaching, praying, passionate Pentecostal Pastor/ Evangelist Dad & Mom Rose Marie Holmes (Mom is still pastoring) ❤️ followed by my grandparents.
But I also must remember Sunday school teachers, youth workers, evangelists and Campmeeting speakers who powerfully impacted my spiritual development.
I’m especially grateful for missionaries, their passionate appeal for the souls of the world, shaped my heart, still beating for global evangelism.
Anyone remember the Philippino Singers, with a Missionary Shields? ( if I recall his name correctly) Their song still moves me…
🎵”To the east, to the west, to north & the south, you must go, I must go, with the gospel of Christ.” 🎵
Bible College professors, (then & now) and Presidents, Dr. Leonard Heroo, and now, Dr David Arnett of Northpoint Bible College Graduate School continue to shape me for anointed, supernatural last-days ministry. Dr Arnett is a spiritual treasure in my life!
District Superintendents ( my pastors) have invested in me, and believed in me and trusted me with ministry.
In 2 Districts in Canada, and now in Illinois. ( Interestingly, I remember that in my youth, some of the most dynamic Campmeeting & Conference speakers I heard were from Illinois such as Richard Dortch, who became a lifelong friend, encourager and mentor.
I’m grateful for Larry Griswold and Gary J. Blanchard who met this Canadian television preacher in a Drury Inn in Marion, IL 10 years ago and welcomed me into the Illinois District Council of the Assemblies of God
Our current District Pastor Phil Schneider
is a trusted friend & confidant, a man of strong convictions & deep commitment to the foundations we have in the Word of God. His leadership continues to sharpen my calling.
My wife Valerie Holmes, co-Lead Pastor with me, is my closest spiritual encouragement… your commitment to the calling of God in our lives, your sacrifice, prayer life, love for the Word of God inspire so many, but no one more than me … I live with you and see your passion for God‘s glory and it continues to motivate me. It is a joy to minister alongside of you wherever we are & right here at REVIVE.
I’m a blessed man and so grateful at Thanksgiving & every day of the year!
To God be all the Glory, and thanks to all my friends… we stand on the shoulders of giants. 💕🙏🔥
