Cassidy Holland

Director of Children’s Ministry

Cassidy grew up the middle child of two brothers in a pastor’s home and never remembers a time she wasn’t in church. From her childhood, she has always had a special love for kids as a sitter, an intern at a family-based community for displaced children in Honduras, an ASL interpreter at the Mississippi School for the Deaf, and an active servant leader in a preschool ministry. In all of those experiences, Cassidy’s desire is to see the next generation grow in their love for the Lord. Her favorite role is “Aunt Sass” to her two-year-old nephew. She has two dogs, Nala and Atlas, and a cat named Weasley. She loves reading, cooking, hiking and camping, but while at home, relaxing on her back porch with a cup of hot tea.
