 About Myles & Valerie Holmes

        Thank you for taking the time to find out more about Myles Holmes Ministries, established in Niagara Falls, Canada in 1984. We are now located just to the east of the Mississippi, 12 miles from St. Louis, in Collinsville, IL. We hope that after you look through our website, you will consider becoming a prayer partner with us as we touch the world for Christ together.

        Myles and Valerie Holmes both graduated from Zion Bible College, Rhode Island,  in 1983 and '82 respectively, where they met. They are Pastors, recording artists, singers, talented writers and producers, TV personalities and anointed speakers with a contagious enthusiasm for life. They are both credentialed ministers with the Assemblies of God. Myles has been ordained since 1985.

        A fifth generation Spirit-filled believer and third-generation preacher, Myles Holmes offers encouragement to people of all ages and walks of life who are looking to strengthen their relationship with Christ.  We offer outreaches in Church Ministry, Crusade Ministry, Television Ministry, and Writing Ministry.

Mission

        Sharing the good news of Christ and His Abundant Life through writing, preaching, teaching, music and media ministry to the entire world and doing our best to bring a smile to the Face of God every day!
The Calling
        Myles Holmes began preaching and traveling in ministry while in his early teens. From childhood, he has known a deep compassion for the nations of the world and a desire to reach the lost with hope. His passion is to "get the hell out of you and the heaven in!" Of particular interest for years of ministry has been motivation ... what moves people to act for God or good ... what moves God to act for people or their good? This quest has been answered in the Bible and marks a prophetic ministry of blessing and encouragement.


Myles Holmes Philosophy of Ministry 
 
        My strategy in ministry is highly Personal and Positive.  I have been blessed with a genuine love for life and people, both God’s people and the lost, and that translates into a contagious enthusiasm for ministry.  I believe a ministry should be a fun, happy and exciting place as the gospel is still a good news word in a bad news world. 

 

I also believe that Christian leadership is to offer a Pattern of Purity.  I am convinced that I am to live my life as an example to believers, a model of a life lived in Christian service.  My devotion to God, my wife and family and the affection I demonstrate publicly to each of them enables me to say like Paul, “follow me as I follow Christ”.  Too much heartache and damage has been caused by ministers who have failed in their holy calling to set a high and holy standard in personal living.  This is not a Pharisaical-self-righteous snobbery.  It is a humble life pursuit to please God and lead others in pleasing Him.

 

I have determined that my ministry will be consistently Practical and Pertinent.  It is abundantly evident that the church must teach and model practical life skills and answer questions people are actually asking.  Practical life issues such as marriage, family and finances must be taught from the Word.  Key to a well rounded ministry is attention to both Genesis and Revelation; creation evidences and end-time prophecy. My ministry must also be pertinent and relevant to present-day current issues, and answer the culture where it is attacking the faith, whether it be James Cameron’s box of bones or the DaVinci Code.  This necessitates, at times, a prophetic Biblical challenge from the pulpit regarding issues of morality and life. The Church must be salt and light.

 

 Passionate Preaching  is at the heart of my ministry.  There is nothing that can take the place of the anointed teaching and preaching of the Word of God.  Ministry must be Bible-centered.  Scripture must be given first place.  This high honoring of the Word of God demands that we communicate its life giving, heart-changing message in a manner that will attract, convict and connect with young and old, believers and backsliders, the committed and the curious.  Therefore, preaching and teaching must, first and last, be anointed by the Holy Spirit.  That anointing will also lead us to be creative and illustrative with stories, dramas, humor, props, and multi-media, all for the purpose of edifying the saints and winning the lost!

 

Permissive Partnership  is the style of my ministry.  While understanding and appreciating the necessity of pastoral authority and leadership spiritual leaders must seek to build a team that embraces a common vision and works together toward that goal.  Not one of us is smart enough or strong enough to do it alone.  We must learn from one another, share, grow and lean on one another.  Whether in staff relationships, Deacon/Elder Boards, or the church as a whole, there must not only be the perception, but the living reality that the ministry is owned and operated by all of us; every believer in ministry.  Every believer is a partner in the vision and has permission to build their ministry and grow the church!
 

The life of any ministry and its leadership must be marked by Prevailing Prayer.  The impact of the church in people’s lives, the community and the world will be in direct correlation to the prayer life of its leadership.  The church itself must answer Christ’s demand that His Father’s House be called a house of prayer.  Seasons of intercession of the corporate body are vital.  Seeking God at the altar in prevailing prayer is still an important aspect of my ministry.  Praying through to break-through is my style and my passion. 

 

 A body of believers must offer to a dying world, through their corporate gatherings, a sense of Prophetic Presence.   We must gather with an anticipation of the manifest glory of God.  Our worship and our praise is inhabited by His Presence.  We gather in His name and He shows Himself.  Music, whether new or old, hymns or contemporary, soft or exciting must all point our hearts heaven-ward and glorify God.  We come together to taste and see that the Lord is good.  God is to be experienced!

 

We need an expression of first century Pentecostal Power   in a 21st century dynamic.  We lay hands on the sick and see them recover, we declare deliverance from every stronghold and bondage and we know that Christ will confirm His Word with signs following.  I also am very certain that the purpose of the Holy Spirit infilling is to empower us to be witnesses for Christ in our contemporary setting.  Pentecostals must be soul winners and evangelists fulfilling the great commission and building the church.  Spirit-filled believers operate not only in the gifts of the Spirit but also manifest the fruit!  We have righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

 

My philosophy of ministry is propelled by a desire to heal the hurting, win the lost, get the hell out and the heaven in, love the body of Christ, build His church together, prepare for His coming and have fun while doing all of that and more.  All for His glory!
