Dr. Donny Holley
Associate Pastor of Education and Spiritual Development

In my earlier years I had a few people that mentored me and really impacted my life. It impacted my life so much that I have dedicated my life to pass on the same vision: “To influence people to grow and develop to their potential and live an extraordinary life. As Paul said in Phil 3:14, “I press towards the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Come on, let’s work to be “All that We Can Be.”
