Pastor David Holcomb with his family
How did you become a Christian?
I was fortunate to grow up in a family that lead me to God as a child. So my relationship with Christ has really been a life long journey.
Tell us about your family.
Carolyn and I were married in 1993, and since then we lived in 14 different houses - just that that was an interesting piece of information you might want to know. We have three children, Stevie (2004), Naya (2007) and Elijah (2008). Our favorite family activity is getting out of the house and going somewhere together in the van.
Who is the most influential person in your life?
Without a doubt, that's my Dad. He was a great example of a learner. So even the stuff I learned from other people, I owe kind of to him.
If you knew you were going to be left stranded in the desert, what are the three things you will take with you?
This, by the way is my complete worst nightmare...Let's see, I would bring my Crocs - they're comfy to walk in and have holes on the sides so that the sand doesn't pile up in your shoes when you're walking in sand; my guitar, so I could play along with the coyotes and scare away the rattlers; and a car door - that way, when I get hot I can just roll down the window (rotfl).
What are you listening to right now?
The sound of a leaf blower...not too melodic.
What's your special talent?
I'm loud. I know it doesn't sound like much, but it comes in really handy when you're trying to get people's attention at a BBQ, dinner party, or when someone has yelled "FIRE!" in a crowded theater.
What is your favorite movie?
The Three Amigos starring Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short.
What is your favorite book?
The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien
