My wife and I have been Christians since 1995
The first few years we sought a church to be part of
Some were good, some bad, some dead, some alive
Then God led us to *RCC; very much alive and full of love.
But a church is just four wallsÖ..just a building
Itís the people that give it life
We still need guidance and direction to our King
For without a good shepherd, all we face is strife.
Pastor Brett is that shepherd; a Godly man is he
Over the years, he has led us to new heights
Taught us to always trust God, be all we can be
Never watered down Godís word, but kept it right.
Through good times and bad, heís always been there
Hospital visits, home visits, always supplying a need
Provided prayer, encouragement, teaching Godís Word with care
In everyone heís met, he has planted a seed.
Our church has grown; new ministries, mission trips here and abroad
Created a Bible School, raised up new leaders and many to Christ he has led
Has always kept his focus and ours on God
A great shepherd and Godly man; enough canít be said.
But now, Brettís time with RCC is finished
God has for him a new path, new seeds to sow
His influence and love for us will never diminish
Where God leads him, he obediently will go.
So, in my humble way, I write this to honor him
To let him know how much impact heís had on my life
Brett, his children and his beautiful wife, Kim
For them, a special place in my heart there will always be.

Pastor Brett Hollis...
Brett, as Senior Pastor, has brought direction to the church through preaching, teaching and by casting God's vision for RCC. Pastor Brett has been in full-time ministry since he was nineteen years old, giving him twenty years of pastoring experience. He works closely with the Staff, Board, Ministry Leaders and Bible School students to ensure a well organized and equipped place of worship. Brett has a Pastoral calling on his life, given by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit. He loves Jesus and loves people. Convinced that the Bible is the infallible, written word of God, Pastor Brett spends much time in study and prayer, in order to be "fully equipped for every good work" and to correctly teach from it. He has learned to not lean on his own understanding, but in all his ways trust God who is always faithful to provide the wisdom, courage, and tools necessary to accomplish His will in Brett's life
