Meet Our Pastor

David Holt grew up on the family farm outside Summerville, Georgia. He was called to ministry at the age of sixteen. At that time, he was active and successful in the sport of rodeo, so he began holding worship services at the weekend competitions.

David and his wife, Alisha, were married on October 1, 1994. He is a graduate of Shorter University, Rome, Georgia, and he earned a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas.

David and Alisha served as missionaries in Argentina for fourteen years before God called them to the community of East Bernard and First Baptist Church. Both are fluent Spanish speakers. David’s interests and hobbies include hunting, fishing, golf, and sharing those activities with his two sons.
