Pastor Allen Simpson and Family

I want to personally welcome you to Holly Grove Baptist Church.  Holly Grove holds a special place for me and my family.  My wife, Amy, and I were members here in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and we were married at Holly Grove on August 1, 1999.  In November 2014, we returned to Holly Grove, and I began preaching as a fill-in pastor.  In January 2015, I was called to be the interim pastor, and in May 2015, I was called to be the permanent pastor.  We love Holly Grove Baptist Church, and the Lord is truly blessing us here.

We are all very involved in our service to the Lord here at Holly Grove.  Amy is the Children’s and Youth Director as well as the Vacation Bible School Director.  She also manages our website and our Facebook pages.  We are actively engaged in the church, and we seek to fulfill God’s vision and mission for Holly Grove.

I hold a Master in Ministry degree from Anderson University as well as a BA from Presbyterian College and Master in the Art of Teaching from Winthrop University.

We encourage you to visit with us at Holly Grove Baptist Church, and we look forward to meeting you in person.  Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

God Bless,


Allen Simpson, Pastor
