Blake Holland, Praise & Worship Leader
Hi, my name is Blake Holland! I’m excited to be a part of Kingdom ministry at New Image along with my wife Tiffany, and our boys Kendin, Silas and Aesen. I enjoy ministering alongside, and supporting the ministry of, Pastor Mark. I believe that God has a purpose for every believer and I know He has made my family part of the spiritual growth occurring at New Image.
I believe that everything in God’s beautiful creation has a desire to worship him in Spirit and in Truth. We all have abilities and talents that He has given us to express ourselves in a way that is pleasing to Him. I personally want to see every form and variation of this idea brought out in our everyday lives.
I have seen people worship in many different ways, and I have worshiped in many different ways myself, including song, dance, music, writing, painting, drawing technology, cinematography, photography, and in many other ways that all pleasure to God. I feel it my responsibility as a worship leader to see all types of people doing all types of worship that bring glory to him.
I was born in Seneca and have lived in Westminster, S.C. for most of my life. I attended West-Oak High School, which was the time in my life when I fell in love with music and worship. I have been singing since I was a child, but it was during those years when I fell in love with the piano. I have played the piano for a few different churches in Oconee County.
God began to set a good many things in motion, and eventually I returned to my home church (Trinity Praise and Worship Center, now called Harvest Church) where, under the oversight of Pastor Eric Branch, I was made the worship pastor. I served there for nine years before coming to New Image in early 2017.
It’s been my honor and will continue to be my honor to serve in ministry with Pastor Eric and New Image Church, and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us.
