Meet RCC's New Executive Pastor - Chris Hollomon!
Over the past seven years, God has grown RCC from a few families to around 400 people on a typical pre-COVID-19 Sunday. Over the past 6 months, we've continued to add new people and new ministries to RCC even in the midst of the pandemic. We continue to be blown away by God's faithfulness!
With this growth, has come a growing need to add someone to the RCC staff who is gifted at developing people, developing ministry teams, building systems that help us carry out the mission more fruitfully, and managing all of the various challenges and opportunities that come our way. These are some of the reasons why we started a search for an Executive Pastor in June.
Well, today is a big day! I’m so excited to announce that our staff, elder team, and I, believe God has provided us with the Executive Pastor we have been praying and fasting for! His name is Chris Hollomon and he will be starting Sunday, September 27!
Chris has an infectious love for Jesus, his word, his ways, and his people. People who have known Chris for a long time, say he has an unusual love for people, that he is uniquely gifted at “operationalizing vision,” “building systems that advance the mission,” and developing ministry teams. Along with a heart and ability that compliments RCC’s staff, Chris brings over 15 years of church staff experience in the middle-TN area, serving with students, overseeing all next gen ministries, running groups ministry, being a campus pastor, serving as an executive pastor, and a few other roles.
Chris was recommended to us by a trusted ministry leader in June, after we made our Executive Pastor search public. Since that time, Chris has gone through multiple interviews with me, our staff, and our elders. Other great Executive Pastor candidates were interviewed as well, but we believe God was leading us to Chris. As the elder team talked with several of Chris’s references (a list which included former employers and employees), it seemed that Chris checked all the boxes and more that we were praying and fasting for.
Chris is married to Dawn and they have 2 boys, Leul (21) and Myles (11), both of which they adopted from Ethiopia. Both Dawn and Chris went to the University of Tennessee, where they met as interns at a local church. And yes, they are big time Vols fans! You might have heard them cheering from their home in Thompson Station.
As he and his family join the RCC family, please join me in praying for them and fasting one meal, asking God to do two things: that he’ll make the transition smooth and encouraging for the Hollomon family and that God will bless his first efforts at RCC this first 6 months (and well beyond).
