The focus and emphasis during the first two years of her tenure has been on planning and implementing strategies which will increase, strengthen and diversify the organization’s membership base. One of her goals is to have a viable chapter in every city, state and nation to build BRIDGES that will connect the world to Jesus Christ. Dr. Holmes has also emphasized the importance of service, both at home and abroad. In one year, with the aid of the Holy Spirit and through the generous giving of the membership, President Holmes has raised a record $60,000 for the building of a bakery and training school in Haiti . She says, “To God Be The Glory, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be.”
