Chris Holmes

The Lord led me to serve in this role at Yellow Creek in January, 2007.  I have the privilege of overseeing the church’s education and discipleship ministries, in addition to outreach and administration.  Prior to my time at Yellow Creek, I served over ten years in other ministry positions, including youth, college & young adults, and music.

I am a native of Tennessee(!), having grown up just a few miles south of the Kentucky state line.  I am married to my lovely and faithful bride, Beth, and we have one son, Henry.  I studied biochemistry at Lipscomb University and worked as an analytical chemist before God called me into full-time ministry.  I received ministry training at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where I earned the Master of Divinity, Master of Theology, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees.

I enjoy music, books, Baptist history, and spending time with my family.  I am rather partial to good, strong coffee, and my favorite vacation spot is Prince Edward Island, Canada.  In addition to studying the Bible, I enjoy reading blogs and researching my family history as time allows.
