KILLEEN, TX — The legacy of a beloved Killeen spiritual leader Bishop Nate Holcomb is preserved through honorary street naming.

“He has such a love for God and a love for people period. He would do anything that he could for anybody,” said Elder Joseph Solomon of the Christian House of Prayer.

Holcomb, the founder of the Christian House of Prayer, was known for his impassioned sermons that grabbed the attention of believers across the globe.

“He touched thousands of people just through his community and throughout the country, and throughout the world,” said Gregory Johnson of the Killeen City Council and member of the Christian House of Prayer.

City council leaders voted unanimously to add his name to Cunningham Road, a street that leads to his church. The congregation packed into city council chambers in support of the proposition.

“We got an honorary street name. We would love to have got the full change of names, but that didn’t happen. We’re going to still work on that,” said Solomon.

Bishop Nate Holcomb passed away from ALS in early December of 2018.
