Unbound Ministry

Holly Myers is Pastor Richard’s wife, mom of two girls, church planter, and a speaker. Holly is also the founder of Unbound Ministry and serves the Kingdom in many capacities born from a burden of her own life experiences. Holly was led down a long path of pain and destruction through her struggles with self-image, food addiction, and understanding who she was in Christ. When Holly surrendered to God’s grace, her past ultimately drew her closer to the Creator and she finally experienced freedom. Because Christ has set her free from bondage, she recognized a calling to speak to girls and women that may share her same story.

Communications Director


Foreign Missions Coordinator

Blake Glover is the foreign missions coordinator of Revolution Church. After spending several summers serving in other countries, Blake knew that the Lord was calling her to ministry. Blake is grounded in the simple fact that Jesus commands his people to “go and make disciples,” whether that be at your workplace, your kids soccer game or in an orphanage halfway across the world. The Lord commands his people to draw hopeless, broken people to himself. Ultimately, she desires all believers to take the words of Jesus and serve the local Church with a global perspective.
