Apostle Terry Holmes
OUR SENIOR PASTOR
Apostle Terry L. Holmes was born September 30, 1965, in New York City. Growing up in the Bronx, he attended Antioch Church of God in Christ in Jamaica, Queens, NY, with his parents Elder Timothy and Shirley Holmes.
After completing high school in 1983, Holmes joined the US Army. He served with the 75th Ranger Regiment, Fort Benning, GA and was honorably discharged in March of 1988. Shortly after, Holmes was accepted to the New York State Police Academy.
Upon graduation from the Academy, Holmes was assigned to upstate New York where he soon found a church home, Faith Temple Church of God in Christ, Beacon, NY. The call on his life was recognized by his pastor, Michael Dandridge and others. A faithful member and musician for the church, Holmes was licensed to minister under the tutelage of Pastor Dandridge. In June 1999, with the approval of Bishop James Gaylord, Holmes was ordained an Elder in the Churches of God in Christ.
In September of 2004, Holmes was asked to lead a congregation in Waterbury, CT. Humbled at the request, and with much counsel and prayer, Holmes accepted this call and began leading a small congregation in February 2006.
In February 2011, God blessed Holmes to retire at the age of 45 from serving as a Sergeant for the New York State Police. In October 2015, he married the love of his life, Mary Kaye Holmes, who works diligently beside him in ministry. He is the proud father of three daughters; Charity, Alissa, and Tracey, and two sons; Joshua and Matthew.
Apostle Holmes currently holds a Doctorate of Divinity from CICA International Seminary and his ministry continues to flourish as people are positively impacted and changed by the life-giving Word of God, which he teaches.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
