The Holwick family

David and Celeste met in 1978 while he was in Gordon-Conwell Seminary in Massachusetts.  They lived in an attic apartment in Ipswich, then a trailer in Pepperell, and then served their first church in West Lafayette, Ohio, in 1982. We moved to Ledgewood, New Jersey, in 1989. Our house is right next to the church and was infamous for the tall skateboard ramps in the backyard (quietly destroyed after he left for college). We homeschooled all our children before sending them to Roxbury High School.  All of them moved to Denver and have since scattered across the country - Lake Tahoe NV, Lakewood CO, Albany NY, and Beverly MA.  Dan and Kara made us grandparents in July 2015 with little William Weston.

Celeste is a registered nurse and works as a manager in the Welkind Rehabilitative Center in Chester, NJ.  In the autumn of 2005 she was diagnosed with stage III uterine and ovarian cancer and had surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.  She has been cancer-free ever since, though the treatments do leave their reminders...

Our ministry has a special emphasis on Bible studies and one-on-one discipleship. Celeste also has a gift for youth work.

Our passions in life include hiking, camping in National Parks, and bike riding. David is an avid amateur astronomer and has observed over 400 asteroids and 600 galaxies with his 10" Dobsonian telescope.  He is also a stained-glass hobbyist and creates reproduction Tiffany lamps for family and friends. The current (much-delayed) project is a full-sized window for the church.

Our current pet is Carol the Cat who followed the church Christmas carolers home in 2011.  She had a litter of four and each found a nice home.  We made sure she wouldn't have any more.
