Jacob Holman was born in Oxford, MS, and spent most of his youth there. He graduated from Mississippi State University in December 1998 with a B.B.A. While in college, Jacob began “fill-in” preaching for several churches in Mississippi. He also completed a summer program with Lawrence Kelley and the Stonegate congregation in Pt. Arthur, Texas.

Upon completion of these training programs, Jacob began working with the North Jasper church in Jasper, AL, in July 2002. In August 2008, Jacob and his wife, Anna, moved to Elizabethtown, KY, to work with the College View congregation. During their time in Kentucky, Jacob and Anna had three children, Abigail, Elijah, and Joshua.
