My name is Holly Renken and I’m a PK, Pastors-Preachers-Kid. My background is Church, ministry and servant-hood. I grew up engulfed in music and prayer. My parents and brothers are some of the most amazingly talented musicians I’ve ever known, and me, well, I found myself feeling a little lost and left out in that world, as I was not musically talented. That left me with a “void” and I longed for my own fulfillment in life and with the LORD. In 2000, my parents hosted World Revival Church in our city, and my life was radically changed. It was a pivotal moment for me. Everything in me came alive! I was introduced to those on the WRC TEAM who came to minister and who were my own age. They were real people that had made some poor decisions, placing their lives in situations that were not good. By the grace of God, he had delivered them out of the messes they’d made. Their lives were totally changed by Him. They were so passionate about Jesus and his relentless love for them. It was contagious! They all had this totally abandoned, sold out, addictive love for God that instantly effected and changed me as well. I moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where I attended World Revival School of Ministry. It was there that I really began to seek God and he began to show me things inside myself that I never knew existed. Prayer meetings before and after school created for me what seemed to be the most amazing experience of my life! Our class traveled with the Ministry Team to different churches to minister and it was during these trips that I began to pray for people after services at the alter. During those prayers, I began to notice that I could literally feel each individual’s heart, not in a weird or physic way but in a God way. I could feel what was in their heart. It was then I realized that God had pulled me out, healed me of my hurt, pain and struggle and was now using me to pray for and to help others who were going through the very same things that He had delivered me from. While in Kansas City, I also spent much time at IHOP- International House of Prayer. Through prayer my life was totally changing for the better and God began to reveal amazing things that he wanted me to do in the future.
Jeremiah 29:11 MSG
I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.12“When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen.13-14“When you come looking for me, you’ll find me.“Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.”
My dream developed through the years and I am now ready to step into it.
In 2012 I began adventuring out in my dream of planting a Dream Center coupled with a 24/7 house of prayer and worship. Now 5 years later, I’m a Ordained Pastor and have now planted Dream Center Gulf Coast is located in Houston, Texas and the dream continues to build with momentum in forward motion. None of this did I do alone nor can I take credit for any of it. I can not tell you how honored I am that God trust me to allow me to do what I do and I owe all appreciation and honor to the people that God has placed in my life and the life of the DCGC that have helped cultivate who I am and what the DCGC is today.
