Majors William and Heather Holman

Majors Bill & Heather Holman were transferred to Waukegan, IL in June of 2008. Prior to coming they were in command of The Salvation Army of Mattoon, IL. They come to the Waukegan area with great expectation of what God is going to do through them to build HIS Kingdom in and around Lake County.

Born into The Salvation Army both come with a rich heritage, understanding, and love to see The Army grow. Bringing people into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ is their first love as well as discipling them in their journey with God.

Bill is a fifth generation Salvationist and Heather a fourth. Both family lines date back to the beginnings of The Salvation Army in England. Being faithful Soldiers (members) and leaders in their home Corps, it wasn’t until 1995 they felt the call of God on their lives to become full time officers (ministers) in The Army. It was during the next year they would see God’s Hand on their family’s life to be very evident and faithful. In August of 1996, they entered the College for Officer’s Training with their children being Commissioned (ordained) in June 1998.

The Holman’s have been married for over 30 years and have three married children and six  grandchildren.

They have a passion to be encouragers as well as challenge their family and congregation in their daily walk with God.
