Sally Holiday

Founder of Calvary Chapel Yorba Linda Preschool & Academy, wife of Founding Pastor Chico Holiday

Sally received Jesus as her Lord and Savior when she was struck with Polio as a child.

Before Christian Ministry, Sally traveled and performed around the world, including for the U.S.O. overseas.  There she met her husband, Chico Holiday, who was a recording star for R.C.A, Decca Records, and many others.

She fell in love with him and has been in love and married for 53 years.  She loves her 7 children and their mates, 19 grandchildren, and more hopefully to come.

Sally co-hosted a T.V. show called “The Good Life” with her husband.  She also had her own women’s T.V. show and helped produce others for HIM.

Sally’s Christian Ministry has included working with missions, the homeless, and young girls from the streets.  Her total joy is Jesus and The Word of God.  It is her love to know that she is nothing without the leading of the Holy Spirit and to come to the Father in prayer.

Sally has done much teaching and speaking around the world, but the dearest and most important role in her life is her family, her husband, and her Savior “The Lord Jesus Christ”.

Sally’s favorite scripture is, “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:37 (ESV)

At the present she is putting together her notes and thoughts for a book; mostly for her family and love ones.

She is a lover of truth and a Sinner Saved by His Mighty Grace!

Here favorite saying is “Without Him I am Nothing!”
