Pastor Holland Davis (P.HD) is the founder and senior pastor of Calvary Chapel San Clemente in San Clemente, California. He and his wife, Roxie, have two sons Austin, Chase and a daughter Madison. They live in San Juan Capistrano, California.
Holland spent his life growing up in different parts of the world because his dad was enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He’s lived on both coasts, grew up in a trailer in Beaufort, South Carolina, lived in Elk City, Oklahoma, Salt Lake City, Utah, Quantico, Virgina and Vista, California. Jesus made Himself known to Holland at a Young Life meeting in Iwakuni, Japan. That day changed his life forever. He was told by the Young Life leadership to read the Bible and pray and God would teach him. So, Holland began reading the Bible and praying. However, no one told him that he needed to go to church. It wasn’t until his family moved back to the United States that he heard from a friend that you’re supposed to go to church and when he did, he was told that the things he read in the Bible weren’t true for today. This left him confused. Why would the church tell everyone they needed to read the Bible if it wasn’t 100% true for today? At the age of 16, Holland heard a Pastor on the radio say that the Bible was 100% God’s Word and that it was 100% true for today. That Pastor was Chuck Smith. Shortly after, Holland began to pursue ministry as his passion and became the first worship leader at Calvary Chapel Vista at the age of 16. This passion for ministry was heightened after Lonnie Frisbee prayed for Holland at the age of 17.
As a young man, Holland and his wife Roxie helped plant several churches in the Southern California and Riverside area. During this time, Holland began writing worship songs for the local churches he was involved with. He also started teaching and leading worship at conferences around the nation. This led to the fulfillment of a personal dream to work for Maranatha! Music where his platinum selling song “Let It Rise” was recorded by Paul Baloche. Holland’s songs have been published by Vineyard Music, Calvary Chapel Music, Maranatha! Music, Rolltop Records and Word Music and continue to be in the top 100 songs sung by church in the United States as reported by CCLI. However, during a trip to Israel, Pastor Holland once again began to sense God’s leading to return to ministry. This eventually led him to Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa where he led worship for Pastor Chuck Smith, founded the School of Worship, founded Worship Life Conferences and relaunched Calvary Chapel Music. Following his success at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, Holland joined Pastor Skip Heitzig at Ocean Hills Church in San Juan Capistrano. After two short years, Pastor Skip returned to the church he founded in Albuquerque and left Pastor Holland with the charge to be a stabilizing factor during a long and difficult transition.
In 2009, God began to reveal that He had other plans for Holland and Roxie. Through several prophetic words and the agreement of his wife, God made it clear that it was time for Pastor Holland to plant a new Calvary Chapel work in San Clemente. With Pastor Chuck Smith’s blessing, Pastor Holland launched Calvary Chapel San Clemente with a small but dedicated team of church planters on February 14, 2010. The church is now established and growing.
The heart of Pastor Holland’s message is the radical grace of God and how to approach living from God’s “life giving” perspective as presented in God’s Word. As a teaching pastor and worship leader, his passion for seeing God’s people discover their first love is bringing a message of transforming hope to San Clemente and beyond. The mission of Calvary Chapel San Clemente is to know God through His Word, love God through our Worship and reveal God through our Witness.
Pastor Holland graduated from the Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa School of Ministry and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Behavioral Science from National University. He continues to teach and lead worship at conferences such as Exodus International, Billy Graham Rapid Response Training, Worship Life Conferences and Christian Musician Summits. His column, “In The Muse” can be seen monthly in Technologies For Worship Magazine.
