They have have been married since 1996 and have 2 children who thankfully look and act like their mother, Allison (15) and Reilly (11). He is currently pursuing a M. Div. and a D.

Since college graduation, Pastor Holloman has been a youth pastor, associate pastor, or pastor for over 22 years. This includes serving on the faculty of Southeastern FWB College for 10 years in the Bible department teaching classes including Biblical Greek and Systematic Theology. Seven of these years he was privileged to serve as the chairman of the Bible and Pastoral Theology department. During this time he has also been privileged to be apart of 16 trips in the past 10 years overseas to visit FWB missionaries and encourage laymen and college-age students to consider full-time or short-term missions.
Currently he is still an Adjunct professor with the Cedars of Lebanon seminary in Pinar del Rio, Cuba as well as an Adjunct professor with the Free Will Baptist Seminary in Barbacena, Brazil along with teaching occasional online classes for Southeastern.

Brandon began attending Southeastern Freewill Baptist College in 2009, where he would graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Theology and Practical Ministry in 2016.
In April 2016, God laid upon his heart the work that was taken place at Hardin Valley, and in January 2017, he moved from North Carolina to Knoxville, Tennessee to join the team of Hardin Valley in their mission to share the Gospel with the people of Knoxville.
He has a sister, Lakeisha, who is currently serving in Virginia, as a K3-K4 Christian schoolteacher with Good News Christian Academy. Brandon comes to Hardin Valley with a heart to reach young people with the saving message of Jesus Christ, and he is excited about seeing how the Lord is going to use him as he joins the Hardin Valley team.
