Meet Pastor Chris!


“I have been married to my wife Hannah for 7 ½ years. We have a 2 ½ year old daughter named Ellie Joy. Our world revolves around her and Jesus! We recently just announced that baby number two will be joining our family in January. I currently serve as the Executive Pastor of Age Group Ministries at Bethany First Church of the Nazarene. In my role I oversee and lead our Kids, Youth, College, Recreation, and Afterschool Program.

One of my favorite things to do is tell stories. I can’t wait to share some of my favorites with you guys. I am also very passionate about inviting students to experience God in a very real way. I have already starting thinking about praying about what God wants to do in our lives during this retreat. A couple other things about me; I love McDonalds and I don’t care who knows and my favorite song is “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion.  Can’t wait to hang with you guys! I’d love to connect with you guys before and after retreat through Instagram: @chris.holcomb. Peace!”
