lead pastor

One of my greatest joys is being married to my camp sweetheart, Kimberly, and the fun we daily have raising our three gifts from the Lord, Sophia, Cora, and Jasper. I served for a decade as a Pastor in Pennsylvania before coming to Restoration. I have a Th.M. in Homiletics from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary. I enjoy all things woodworking, board gaming, hiking, golfing, and gardening. If you would like to learn more or read any of my articles and publications, it can be found at www.jtholderman.com.

Bill Moore

Discipleship Pastor

My life is enriched by being a husband to Kristen and father to Gabriella and Vivienne. I grew up in Houston, Texas, spent a decade in North Carolina, and three years in Vancouver, BC, before landing here, in my wife’s home state. I really enjoy traveling, but being rooted even more. I also love being outside with a purpose, such as hunting, fishing, hiking, or grilling.

Chris Arvin

Youth & College Director

I was born and raised in Henrico County and I’ve spent the last four years at Hope Church. While I was in high school, my youth pastor pulled me into her office for a school project and showed me what grace, compassion, and love from God truly looked like. This encounter made me dive deeper into what the Lord had for me and set my heart on fire for developing the faith of those below me. In my free time I love watching sports, playing board games, going bowling, and rewatching tv series on Netflix.

I grew up in Virginia, and am so delighted for my family to be back here! I discovered my love for God and his Word at a very young age, and am convinced children of all ages can have vital and joyful relationships with God. I delight in teaching the Word of God, praying that others will be caught up in God's grand unfolding story of redemption. I love laughing, drinking coffee, playing games, reading, any kind of celebration, and going on adventures with my family.

The Lord has given me the desire to lead worship at a young age. For as long as I can remember, I have been singing and leading worship at church, school, and my community. I grew up in Virginia, but I am excited to get to know the Richmond area. I am currently in my senior year at Liberty University online, studying music and psychology interdisciplinary studies. I am excited to use my God-given gifts to serve the congregation at Restoration sufficiently!

children's assistant

I have enjoyed being a part of the Restoration family since 2011. My primary roles have been those

involving the support of our children’s ministry. Recently, my responsibilities have grown to include

caring for our building while providing a clean and welcoming environment for all.

I have three children ranging in ages from 16-22. When not busy with them, I enjoy going on adventures

with my dog, Lucy, spending quality time with friends, and watching historical documentaries.
