|About the Pastor|
The session of Geneva Orthodox Presbyterian Church is happy to announce that on March 6, 2010, Mr. Matthew Holst was ordained as a minister of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and installed as the pastor of Geneva OPC. We rejoice that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who rules over, protects and defends His church, has sent the man of His choosing to serve Him, His church and this particular congregation here in Woodstock, Georgia.
Mr. Holst, a native of Wales and a British citizen, graduated in January 2009 from Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in South Carolina . In December 2009, he completed his pastoral internship at Cambridge Presbyterian Church in Cambridge , England .
After Mr. Holst candidated at Geneva OPC in June 2009, the congregation voted unanimously in July 2009 to issue a call to Mr. Holst to be Geneva ’s new pastor. That call was given to Mr. Holst following his examination and vote of approval in August 2009 by the Presbytery of the Southeast of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
Matthew is married to Stacy, a native of Greenville, South Carolina. The Holsts have two sons, Garin and Isaac.
