Our Leadership

Senior Pastor Holmes 

Pastor Stephen Holmes was born and raised in the foothills of North Carolina. He trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior in May 1982. It pleased the Lord to place pastors in his life from 1984-1991 who would train him in ministry and teach him to rightly divide the Word of God. 

In May 1991, Pastor Holmes was led of the Lord to come to Melbourne, FL to start Testimony Baptist Church. Pastor Holmes received his bachelor’s degree in Theology from the Great Plains Baptist Bible College in Sioux Falls, SD in May 1993. Pastor Holmes’ personal ministry is an international one, having ministered in Spain and Togo, West Africa with plans of ministering in other countries soon.

Pastor Holmes is married to the love of his life, Catherine. The Lord has blessed their marriage with three awesome sons, Warren, Shane and Stephen, who are also heavily involved in ministry. Their family has sung and ministered to churches since 1990 in eight states.

 

Our Senior Pastor is also a mentor and life coach to young adults with the emphasis on preparing and positioning the next generation of leaders to be contributors and conductors of movements and not consumers of what the world is peddling.
