Holsby has a large and diverse alumni community spread throughout the world. Many return to visit us and encourage family and friends to experience Holsby.

Is there a way we can encourage you? Pray for you? We love to hear news from our alumni and how we can better serve you. Get in touch with us at Do you want to connect with former students? We’re on Facebook. Just select the year you attended Holsby; then click on the red arrow and we will take you straight to the matching Facebook group.


Many of our past students continue to contribute to the community of Holsby by praying for us, being ambassadors in their area and supporting us financially.

You can volunteer to serve with our various groups, camps and retreats as well. Our facilities are busy year-round, with Bible school running September through May, and camps and retreats running April through August. We have both summer and long-term opportunities with the program, kitchen, hospitality and maintenance teams.


Holsby’s ministry expenses are partially supported through a worldwide network of friends. Donations from our supporters and friends are very much appreciated and help Holsby continue with our ministry. We thank God for providing for our needs through this generosity.

Regardless what country you are from, you can support us financially. Currently, only those residing in the U.S. can be issued a tax-deductible receipt. We regret we cannot offer tax receipts to Canadians at this time. If you would like to contribute on an ongoing basis, please indicate that when you make your donation.

Financial Accountability and Governance

Our ministry has the responsibility to be faithful in the stewardship of the resources God provides through our friends and supporters. We are committed to show integrity and transparency throughout our ministry, whether in financial matters or the governance of our Bible school and facilities.
