Dr. Rudy Holland is a lifelong minister who has served the NCLL for years. Born in Kenly, North Carolina, in 1946 to Rudolph and Ernestine Holland, Dr. Holland is the older brother of Sandra Edwards and Diane Brown. When he was thirteen, his parents moved to Lynchburg, Virginia, where Dr. Jerry Falwell was his neighbor, pastor, and mentor. On April 1, 1965, Dr. Holland attended a revival led by Lester Roloff at Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, where he accepted Christ and was called to preach.His ministry began in 1970 at Berean Baptist Church, where he pastored for nineteen years and led Berean Christian Academy and Berean Daycare. Following his tenure at Berean, he was called to serve three churches as senior pastor over a twenty-two-year period: in Uniontown, Pennsylvania; Napa, California; and Sanford, North Carolina. After retiring from the pastorate, Dr. Holland started PRH Ministries in honor of his son Paul, who was unable to serve in the ministry due to a brain tumor. With a theme of “Proclaiming the Word, Reaching the Lost, and Helping the Hurting,” the vision for PRH is for Paul’s testimony to reach those who are suffering. Dr. Holland continues the work of PRH Ministries today in addition to his service at the NCLL.
