-Why We Do It-



The Holt foundation

Mr. Holt Sr. was born on June 18, 1946 in Hart County, Kentucky to the late Richard Holt and Christine Barbour. He was the fourth child of nine.

 On March 13, 1976, Mr. Holt got married to Pearlena Young who stayed by his side for forty-two years, until he passed away on February 3, 2019. Mr. Holt has seven children, four girls and three boys and grandkids, who he loved dearly.

He worked for Lexington Fayette Urban County Government as a painter for 9½ years. He felt like this job was no longer meeting the needs of his family. He would say, “if you don’t like where you’re at in life, change it”, so he stepped out on faith and started his own painting and plastering business. Which was very successful.

He later helped his wife start her own cleaning business, which was also successful.

Mr. Holt was a member of the Church of God and Jesus’ Name. He was the assistant pastor to the late district Elder Robert Lewis. In 2003, he started his own ministry by the name of House of Prayer for All Nations.

Through the years he inspired a lot of people to push for greatness. Including his own children to be leaders. He would say, “in order to be a great leader you have to learn how to also follow.” He believed excellence is a habit not a goal.

 Mr. Holt loved the people. He also had a love for dogs. He would refer to them as one of his children. Mr. Holt’s life showed he was a man of faith, honesty, and transparency in his communication and relationships. He exhibited the attributes of a true man of valor.
