Pastor Bob Holt, Senior Pastor

Pastor Bob grew up in Florida and came to Michigan in 1970. He has been serving at Christ the King Church since 1987. Before CTK, he served at Leach Road Community Church and New Life Chapel. His passion for worship, preaching, evangelism, and leadership shows in everything he does at the church and in the community. Bob and his wife, Ruth, have 4 adult, married sons and 11 grandchildren. His hobbies include golf, scuba diving, boating and racquet sports … in spite of the fact that he lives in Michigan. Proverbs 19:21 is Bob’s life verse: “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”

Pastor Larry Hayward, Associate Pastor

Pastor Larry is the Co-champion of the Grow ministries and Champion of Serve ministries as well as leading CTK’s Marriage Ministry. He has been here since January, 2008 when Oxford Community Church merged with Christ the King. He and Peggy, his wife of 35 years, had started OCC from scratch in 1999. They have 4 grown, married children and 4 grandchildren. For fun, others might not call it that, he enjoys doing sprint (think short distances) triathlons.

Pastor Jesse Holt, Executive Pastor

Pastor Jesse Holt oversees the church office, business/administration, and ministry operations as the Executive Pastor at CTK. On loan from God, he started this stint in July 2014. He is married to the beautiful Pastor Andrea and has three truly fantastic children. Having a special interest in Christian apologetics, he can always find something to discuss. When he’s not peopling, Pastor Jesse loves spending time in a canoe.

Pastor Andrea Holt, Worship and Education Pastor

Pastor Andrea Holt is currently serving as the Worship and Education Pastor here at CTK. She enjoys helping others move forward on their life’s path. Encouraging others is a great joy! Using the arts and education is exciting and helps bring meaning to our daily lives and Christian experience. Pastor Andrea loves spending time with her family and friends and is always cooking up something delicious!

Pastor Bruce McRae, Children's Pastor

Pastor Bruce is the Children's Pastor, overseeing all programming and ministry for children ages birth – 5th grade. He served for ten years as a volunteer in the Children's Ministry before joining the CTK staff in June, 2004. Born and raised in New Zealand, he is told he talks "funny", but he doesn’t see it. And for 10 months out of 12, Bruce wears flip-flops daily. His wife, Jeanne, serves with him in the Children's Ministry, and they have two adult daughters. The fun thing he does these days is smoking food in the electric smoker he received for Christmas last year. Mmmmm. Smoked food.
