Elaine Hollmer Ministries
Elaine was born to Reverend Deforest and Isabel Craze in
Louden County Tennessee, the second of two daughters.
A prophet of God told Mrs. Craze when she was six months
pregnant,"that baby your carrying will sing and minister to
thousands." At three years old, Elaine began singing in church.
At age 13 she made her first album at the Dottie Rambo studio
in Nashville, Tn. By age 16, she was traveling across the
United States singing in churches and conferences for crowds of up to 10,000 a night.
As her ministry progressed she became a very popular speaker in the Women's Aglow and Full Gospel Business Fellowships. From this many of the pastors, would invite Elaine to their church for three night revival services. Because of the compassion she has for God and God's people Elaine would seek God for the right message and was able to minister to the needs of the congregation. Each service she would sing, preach and pray for the sick and afflicted, soon testimonies of healing, and deliverances would become a trade mark of her ministry.
Elaine and her husband, Ken are the proud parents of two sons, Jonathan and David. Both the boys are married giving them five grandchildren . All their children and grandchildren are involved in church and work in the ministry. The Hollmers reside in Fort Payne, AL where Ken and Elaine pastor a church called "Fort Payne Christian Center".
Elaine has traveled to minister in many parts of the world including Africa, Israel, England, Wales, France, Brazil and Canada. She travels across America speaking in conventions, conferences, tent meetings and a church revivals. For eighteen years she has hosted," the Call to Holiness Conference" in Chattanooga, Tennessee. This will be the fourth year that she hosts a School of the Spirit for girls. This event transforms the lives of girls between the ages of 12 to 18. The July 4th week each year, Elaine conducts a 4 day tent meeting in Fort Payne, Al.
Her ministry is a simple gospel message, that can be received by anyone, followed by a powerful illustation of the spiritual gifts described in the 12th chapter of I Corinthians. Her love of people is manifested by her light hearted delivery of the truths of God's word. In 1999 God called Elaine "a stoker" because her anointing is to stir the ambers of revival everywhere she ministers. Today she continues to travel across America, ministering with many of the popular named pastors and teachers that are seen on television. No church is too large or too small for her, she just wants to obey the Lord in her life and in her ministry.
