our leaders

  • Paula Holmes-Pastor

    After co-pastoring Living Word with her husband, Jeffery Holmes, Paula became the pastor of the church shortly after he went to be with the Lord in 2008. Her vision for the church is to have a "Book of Acts" church that is empowered by the Holy Spirit. The gifts of the Holy Spirit will be in operation, and the people will be born again, and filled with the Holy Spirit, so that they may grow up into the fullness and stature of Jesus Christ. She brings a strong gift of preaching, and has been equipped with spiritual gifts from the Holy Spirit for her ministry. She is compassionate, and energetic. She has a good sense of humor, and has the ability to work well with all ages of people.

  • Bill collins-Praise and Worship Leader

    Bill leads the Praise and Worship for Living Word. Music is a means of communication. This is true not only for the lyrics, melodies, harmonies, and rhythm also communicate. For some reason music has the ability to touch the deepest parts of us. People use it to express their deepest joys, sorrows, and passions. As a Christian, music is no different. It helps us communicate our deepest emotions to God and about him. Singing great songs helps to align our souls with the beauty, love, and majesty of our great God. The songs we play can help you remember and believe the truth about you, about God, and about what he has done for you.
