Testimony of Mike Holmes

I was saved on August 31st of 1978 in a barnyard 2 miles East of Pomona Kansas.  It was about 6:30 in the evening.  I had been attending a fundamental Baptist Church for about 3 months.  That afternoon I was talking with one of the bus workers who was concerned for my soul.  I thought I was saved because I had been to several charismatic meetings and Campus Crusade for Christ meetings over the previous 5 years.  I had made some emotional decisions but never came to realization that I was a sinner from birth.  I thought I was a sinner because I sinned,  I did not realize I sinned because I was a sinner.

That afternoon after the discussion with the bus worker I wrestled with God.  For several hours I thought through my experiences of the past and considered my future. God prevailed and at about 6:30 that evening I knelt on a pile of dirt in the center of the barnyard and admitted to God I was a sinner by condition, not action; I place by trust in Christ as the sacrifice for my condition; and I asked Him to make me what he designed me to be.  At that moment I was saved!

 

Christian Education and Experience

My formal training was at Bob Jones University and Maranatha Baptist Bible College. I have a B.A. In Church Ministries with a Minor in Youth Work.  I have two A.S. degrees in Animal Husbandry.  I have about 20 additional credits from Colorado Mountain College in Accounting, Marketing, Business Management, etc...

My practical experience started with 4 years of Summer ministry with Neighborhood Bible Time summer evangelism.  Upon Graduation I worked for a year and a half with NBT in Management. I then became the Youth Pastor a First Baptist Church in Steamboat Springs, CO. After two years I resigned so I could start the Baptist Youth Mission.  BYM was founded in 1988.  We have reached thousands of teenagers and children for Christ. We have conducted hundreds of VBS and Teen revivals across the U.S.A , Canada and Mexico.
