I tried to wear the name Patricia, because it sounds sooo elegant, but it’s just never fit me. It’s a little too fancy for me. I’m really just a simple, down-home Southern girl– so please call me Pat, that’s what everyone calls me.
I’m Southern through and through. That means I love to go barefooted, I drink sweet tea and eat turnip greens and cornbread. I say “y’all” and “bless your heart.” I try not to say yeller for yellow, but you just might hear “yeller”, if I’m around you very long.
I am a passionate lover of God and His Word. I am energized by people, speaking and writing. I love to share what God is showing me from the Bible with people of all ages!
My favorite pastime is exploring nature and laughing with my husband. He is a master craftsman and working with him is an absolute delight. And I do a fabulous job of carrying the dumb end of a board. I’ve pulled electrical wire in new construction, laid lots and lots of tile and made strawberry jam at Bull Run National Campground.

Passionate, Enthusiastic, Anointed, and Sweet
are the four words most people use after hearing me speak. My motive gift is encouragement, and it penetrates everything I do whether it is writing, teaching or preaching. My goal is for my listeners to be encouraged, inspired and uplifted. I really love people…and I think you’ll feel it when we meet.
While, I learned to minister by teaching and preaching to kids, I’m not childish. I take the principles of God’s Word and make them easy to understand and practical to live out. I believe God’s Word is practical and should effect every area of our life. I’m convinced God wants His children (all ages) to live joyful and victorious lives through the power of the Holy Spirit.
I base my life and ministry on the principles of God’s Word. The Bible is God speaking, commanding, guiding, loving and revealing His nature and His plan to people. Christianity is not another self-help program.
Walking with Christ is two-fold or two sided like a coin:
- we need Jesus, the living Word
- and the Holy Spirit empowerment to live out that Word.
I have observed that the same people that love Jesus, may seem intimidated or offensive when approaching the subject of the Holy Spirit. That observation challenges me. I love, I mean really love to take that spiritual coin, turn it over and help people see the other side. I am passionate about helping believers know and experience the fullness of precious Holy Spirit.

I enjoyed feeling your zeal and passion for God and doing his will. It is not only refreshing, it’s contagious. Also, I enjoyed your stories. I’ve already shared many of them with family members and co-workers. —Damarise Murphy-Reyes
We have recently had the benefit of the anointed ministry that Pat Holland brought to our church. She ministered to our women, to our parents, to our workers, and to the entire congregation in our Sunday morning services. The altar services were powerful and life-changing.
The wisdom that God imparted through her has made a strong and Godly impact on me, personally, and everyone here. We have been enriched.
Without reservation, I recommend that you invited Pat to minister in your church and to any specific group within it. She is versatile and has an energetic, spirit-filled anointing. –Tom Kempt Pastor

Minister on the Holy Spirit
The early church was born in the fire and power of the Holy Spirit. If the early church needed power then, don’t we still need it? Did God intend for the church to be born in dynamic fire only to sizzle out? Or has the lid of wrong teaching kept us from receiving the infilling of the Holy Spirit? Has unbelief cut your tap root so your people fail to receive the deep things of God?
Patricia Holland was involved in children’s ministries for over thirty years. She has BEEN THERE, Sunday after Sunday in the classroom. She has taught Wednesday night programs, Children’s Church, and Sunday School. She has served as Children’s Pastor, CE Director and Christian Education Consultant. She travels extensively throughout the United States training teachers to “Make the Bible Come Alive” in their classes.
Teacher Building Strategies
What you don’t know CAN hurt you!?
Have you ever wondered why it is so hard to recruit volunteers? Or why the turn over rate is so high? Often the real problem is lack of vision and training.?I watched in Guatemala as men cut the grass with long pruning shear-type scissors knowing it can be done so much more easily and quickly with a lawn mower. In the same respect, there are wonderful tools available that will help teachers do a more effective job—more easily! I often see good people becoming frustrated or burned out doing the best they can. The problem is they need to know HOW and that there IS an EASIER way.
Most important thing you will ever do—without a doubt the single most important thing outside your personal relationship with Jesus Christ is raising your children. Nothing has greater responsibility or pays greater dividends. You will never stop being a parent. The role changes, deepens, but you’ll always be a parent. So make investments in your children…if you want to enjoy the dividends maturity brings.
Intergenerational prayer conference to encourage and motivate people of all generations to pray diligently and effectively.
1 Timothy 2:1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone– 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
How do we help people become stronger followers of Christ? We must help them fall in love with both the Living Word and the Bible. Relationship and revelation are essential for the on going growth of disciples.
