Born and raised by parents Richard & Yvette Barnes in Jacksonville, Florida, Tayana Holland has always been an active follower of Christ in the ministry. She has held membership in the Nurse’s Guild, Ministers & Deacons Wives Guild, Youth Adult Choir, Sunday School Educators, Missionary Department, and the Armor Bearers Young People’s Union (A.B.Y.P.U). As a child, Tayana’s mother once prophesied that Tayana would develop many spiritual gifts for use in her future calling as the First Lady of a church one day. God’s word will and never would return to Him void as that prophesied word began to take manifestation. Since receiving the Lord’s salvation in her Florida hometown, for over 20 years, Tayana has been a devoted Christian.

It was in Florida that Tayana Barnes met her friend, and future husband and Pastor, Sean Holland, at church one day. Since then, “it has been the most glorious journey that I could have ever imagined”, Tayana says. Their relationship has blossomed from a friendship into marriage and the glory of God has manifested abundantly within this Holy union. As they embark upon their 18th year of marriage, Tayana is happy and proud to share with him four beautiful children: Gabrielle, Sean II, Andrew and their newest (and last – so the saying goes…) addition to the family – Angelica. Unknowing of what her future would hold, her faith and submitted obedience allowed God to order her steps enabling her to prosper into the virtuous woman that she is today.

Tayana Holland attended Baker College in Flint, Michigan where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Human Services in May of 2007. During her college journey, Tayana was blessed with a number of internships at major organizations such as Capital Area Academy in Lansing, Michigan and the Consortium On Child Abuse & Neglect of Genesee County in Flint, Michigan.

As a Pastor & First Lady of the Epicenter Of Worship, Tayana has faithfully served and contributed to the ministry in leading the Administration Team, Ladies of Excellence Women’s Ministry, Children’s Ministry, and Epicenter Of Worship’s Hospitality Ministry. Tayana Holland is a virtuous woman of Zion with a humble and meek spirit that draws all people.

First Lady Graduated with a Masters of Arts in Christian Studies with a focus in leadership from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona as of 2014.

“I have learned that the Kingdom of God is a group of diverse people and it takes the wisdom of God to deal with each one. My faith has increased as I have watched Him make the impossible possible.”
