Jacob Holman was born in Oxford, MS, and spent most of his growing up years there. He graduated from Mississippi State University in December 1998 with a B.B.A. While in college, Jacob began doing "fill-in" preaching for several churches in Mississippi, and also did a summer program with Lawrence Kelley and the Stonegate congregation in Pt. Arthur, TX.
After graduating from MSU, Jacob did two preacher training programs: a one-year program with Harold Turner and the Northside Chruch of Christ in Greenwood, AR; and a two-year program with Mark White and the College View congregation in Florence, AL.
Upon completion of these training programs, Jacob began working with the North Jasper church in Jasper, AL, in July 2002, and had a good six-year work with those brethren. In August 2008, Jacob and his wife, Anna, moved to Elizabethtown, KY, and began his work with us. In the almost eleven years they have been here, Jacob and Anna have added three blessings from God to their family: Abigail, Elijah, and Joshua.
