Todd Holmes was raised in a pastor’s home and has been around ministry all his life. He was born again and spirit filled at a young age. After graduating high school he went on to college to pursue a career in music. It was during this time that God made it very clear to him that he was called to full-time ministry. Todd then felt compelled to attend Rhema Bible Training Center. During this schooling he took the position of Associate Pastor at his father’s church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which he filled for fifteen years. Prior to that, Todd had done youth pastor work part-time for five years. He has worked in every facet of the local church. He is a skilled musician, singer/songwriter, author, and praise and worship leader. Todd founded World Impact Ministries in 1990 to reach throughout the U.S. and foreign nations with the demonstrative power of the Holy Ghost and the pure Word of Truth.
Katie, after being dramatically born again and filled with the Holy Spirit, also attended Rhema Bible Training Center. After graduating in 1994, she then worked for and traveled with a prominent lady evangelist, carrying revival around the world. Through this she met Todd and they were married in July of 1999. Through their combined ministry, they have traveled throughout the US and in twenty three countries of the world, with several trips to some of those countries.
Todd and Katie left the position in Tulsa in 2001 to go full-time into evangelism and international crusades. In 2004, Todd and Katie moved from Tulsa to Tampa to base their evangelistic ministry out of The River at Tampa Bay. In October, 2007 they entered positions as associate pastors at The River of Tampa Bay Church. Todd was also the Dean of RBI, RSW, RSG, RBIE & RSCP. Katie also headed up an international ministerial association. In August, 2018, Todd, Katie, and their three sons, moved to the Tri-Cities area of Tennessee to launch The River of Tri-Cities Church and to see the mighty move of the Spirit of the Lord that God has spoken to their hearts would take place in this area and beyond.
