Deaf Pastor – Mike Holman
  Deaf Adult Class Teacher
My name is Mike Holman and I have been Deaf since birth.  I am a Deaf skateboarder who has been skating for 30 years.  I rode my first board at age 15 and soon afterward became heavily involved in the skateboarding world.
But I was lost.  Let me explain to you what that means.  I was raised in a family who believed in evolution.  I had no idea that Jesus had died for me to provide me a home in Heaven.  I had never been told the plan of salvation.
At the age of 27, a good friend of mine came to see me at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., and he told me the Good News of Jesus Christ.  I accepted Christ as my Savior, and my life has since been transformed.  
Now I am married and have five wonderful children.  I marvel at the free gift God has given me, and it is my duty to share it with everyone.  i am now the Deaf Pastor at Lighthouse Baptist Church.
