1888

From his earliest recollection he felt that he must be a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As he grew older, the call became more and more distinct and unmistakable.

When sixteen years of age, he joined the Church under the ministry of Rev. John L. Sifley, at Shady Grove, on the Cameron Circuit.

1899

Mr. Holman was licensed by the Lynchburg District Conference to preach, while a student at Randolph-Macon College, Bedford City, Virginia. He was received into the Virginia Conference at Petersburg, Virginia, in 1899.

In 1900, JESSE K[NOBEL] HOLMAN was a boarder in the family of Isaac Houchins in Smith River District, Patrick County, VA, age 28, birthmonth May 1872, his occupation Preacher.

He was ordained Deacon by Bishop W. W. Duncan, at Newport News, Virginia, in 1901, and Elder by Bishop A. W. Wilson, at Lynchburg, Virginia, in 1904.

On September 20, 1904, Mr. Holman was married to Miss Annie Bryant, daughter of Col. C. B. Bryant, an attorney of Martinsville, Virginia. They have three living children. One child is in Heaven.

Mr. Holman served twelve years in the Virginia Conference and his ministry was attended by great success.

In the last charge he served there, three hundred and forty persons joined the Church. Two churches were completed and another was built. Several young men brought to Christ by him in the revival meetings have entered the Christian ministry.

He was transferred to South Carolina by Bishop John C. Kilgo, at the Conference held in Bennettsville, South Carolina, in 1911.

He was appointed to Rowesville charge where he served two years, accomplishing much good. He had a great revival at the Rowesville Church. He repaired the church and parsonage.

At the last session of the Conference he was appointed to Duncan Church in Spartanburg, where he is doing excellent work.

[The biographical sketch and character assessment (below) on JKH apparently dates from before April 1914 when his fourth child, ANN HOLMAN, was born in Spartanburg, SC.]

“Mr. Holman is a quiet, unassuming gentleman, but zealous in the Master’s work. His preaching is largely evangelistic, for he believes that the supreme mission of a minister is to bring men and women to Jesus Christ.”
