Has been preaching the word of God since 1978 and is still preaching that Heaven is real, Hell is for ever, and Jesus saves. Many people today only see him is the "Volleyball Guy" and have missed what Bro. Holmes is all about. He is about preaching the Word of God, Helping the Local Church, and most of all reaching the lost with the gospel of Christ. If you are planning to have Bro. Holmes in your Church I ask you to not miss out on a blessing by having him preach to your people. The revival meetings are the main focus and the "City Wide Rally" is just a great way to finish off a great week and reach the multitudes in your city. Brother Holmes is also a great youth speaker, the teens love him and he would be a blessing to your Youth Conferences or Summer Camps.
I just wanted to brag on Jesus a little if you will let me. Many of you prayed for us here at Oakside for our revival and citywide outreach with Evangelist Holmes last week. I can honestly say that our Lord did “exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we could ask or think”….
…We had great services Sunday with 6 new families that visited for the first time, all as a result of being exposed to our ministry on Thursday. Many people enquired about our church and where we are and many, including the school leaders and administration thanked us for bringing such a “positive message” to the kids of
…. Troup County
…Sunday night we had a 2 hour church service as the testimonies and praises started and seemed like they would never end. Folks who have not publicly spoken since I have been here, testified to what God did in their heart and how they rejoiced at what they had seen and heard….. Some were able to witness to folks that were there who could not get into the gym and were heart broken at the stories and hurts of the people they met. One of our men wept as he relayed “ They packed out a gym and were hungry to hear the message. God broke my heart that we have not done enough to take the message to them”….

Dear Pastor please read this exciting news that just happened (February 2008) at Oakside Baptist Church with Pastor Stephen Curry. This is far bigger than a game.
Thanks for your help with our revival with Bro Holmes, and I do mean revival. Our people were energized like never before and worked harder and prayed more fervently for this meeting than anything anyone can remember for a very long time. God really blessed and the impact is still being felt all over our city. We had 6 families visit our church for the first time Sunday as a result of the rally Thursday night. We literally packed out the gym with 1400 people and at the invitation there was a sea of hands that went up. You ought to see the video!! We had 287 folded cards turned in and our folks are overjoyed at what God did for us and are excited about the prospects of follow-up. We had a 45 minute testimony time Sunday night that turned into a service all by itself. God breathed on our church last week and I do not believe that we will ever be the same. God is so good!!
