How it Started
Patrick Holloran was born in 1953 in Billings, Montana. At the age of nine years old, his father and mother moved the family to Sacramento, California, where he grew up. He was raised in the Roman Catholic Church, where he also attended Catholic Grammar Schools and High School.
At the age of 19, He enlisted in the U.S. Army and was involved in Military Intelligence and was stationed with the 82nd Airborne Division in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. After his time of service, he moved to Medford, Oregon.In 1980, at Medford Christian Fellowship (which became Cornerstone Church) Patrick made a personal commitment to ask Jesus Christ to be his King of kings and Lord of lords.
In 1982, he married Valeria Jeane, who was also a member of that church body. In 1983, they answered the call to ministry and attended Capital Bible College in Sacramento, California, where Patrick graduated as Salutatorian of his class.
They ministered as youth pastors until 1992. Then they moved to Forsyth, Montana to be senior pastors of an Assembly of God church.
In 1997, Patrick and Valeria moved their family to Ferndale, Washington to pastor there. In 1998, they started a non-denominational church called Harvest Christian Center.
Knowing that the Lord was asking them to travel full-time in the ministry of the pulpit, they proceeded to answer the calling of itinerate traveling, and renamed the ministry Harvest House International Ministries.
As Harvest House International Ministries has grown and evolved, God is continually revising and maturing the ministry and it's purpose. We have not reached the finish line yet, and are very much enjoying the journey and the new experiences it is bringing into our lives.
Pat has a passion for music and enjoys playing his guitar.
Currently, he is working on completing the writings that he has been impressed by Holy Spirit to author.
