Rev. J. Scott Yow, Jr.
Pastor J. Scott Yow, Jr. joined the Holly Springs family as senior pastor February 14, 2016. In his own words, "I knew God was calling me back 'home' to serve this great church!" Rev. Yow previously served the Holly Springs family as Youth Pastor nearing 16 years ago. His return is no doubt a return home. He and his wife Crystal of nearly 21 years, have two children, Meredith Claire and Landon. They currently reside in Broadway, NC. Rev. Yow's theological studies began at Carolina Bible College in Fayetteville, NC to graduate studies at both Campbell Divinity School and Southeastern Seminary. In addition, he has served in the pastoral ministry of three other churches spanning over two decades. His summary of ministry is captured in a few simple words: "I'm just a beggar telling another beggar where to find bread."

Two verses which speak to her heart and life are Colossians 3, verses 16 and 17: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” (ESV)
