Arise ministry Could not run without our faithful volunteers who give of their time to pour into the next generation. We give all glory to God for this ministry and count on Him to send us the right people with a heart to love, encourage, and train up kids and teens to love and serve Jesus. They are helping to create life-long followers of Jesus.
Amy Holt
Arise Discipleship & Outreach Pastor 

Amy is passionate about the call on her life to reach kids for Jesus. She has spent most of the 22 years she has been raising her 4 kids, working in Children's ministry in her local church.  She feels God is calling her to reach out even beyond the 4 walls of the church to help draw kids to Jesus, strengthen them and pull them together. She believes training kids to know and follow closely to Jesus is the answer our generation is searching for to bring hope to the future of our nation as a whole.  This movement can start with the smallest ones and begin to spread. She is determined to reach as many kids as she can and train them in the Word of God. She believes this can be done through music and the arts. She has been director and owner of Popstars Performers for 7 years in the Friendswood area and now God is calling her to start a Children's Ministry, Arise Kids, to reach the community and the World.

Amy is married to her high school sweetheart, James,  who is a local Police Officer, and they have 4 beautiful children; Hannah, Sarah-Grace, Isaiah and Abigail. Hannah graduated from Bible college in Tulsa studying children's ministry and worship and is now the worship pastor for Purpose Church in Sugarland, TX.  Sarah works with kids at her local church and leads worship while attending SAGU Christian college. Isaiah is a junior in high school, loves fishing, & volunteers in the media dept. of their church and Abigail is on the varsity cheer team at FHS, and loves to sing and preach for Jesus. 

Amy's goal is to reach as many kids as possible and instill the love of Jesus in their hearts and inspire them to reach out to others.
