Dallas Holm | "Here We Are": Serving Jesus Together
It was the decade of Happy Days & All in the Family, bell bottoms, and leisure suits. Everything was “groovy” and “out of sight”, like John Travolta and Donny & Marie. The Sony Walkman was first introduced, and in 1977 there was a little movie called Star Wars that made its debut. I was 12 years old and went to see the movie with my friend’s family.
1977 was also the year that I asked Jesus to take control of my life. It was about the time that one of my spiritual mentors introduced me to a song called, “Rise Again,” which was written and recorded by Dallas Holm. That song would stick with me through the years, and 45 years later I am honored to have a sit down with Dallas Holm to talk about his music and his ministry. Dallas Holm is a legendary Christian artist and a pioneer of what would be known as contemporary Christian music. Dallas gave his life to Jesus in 1965 at the age of 16. It was then that he decided to combine his love of music with his newfound faith. He started writing his own Christian songs around this time performing them in jails, churches, and in street ministry. It was an honor to welcome Dallas to the show. We discuss biblical views on current topics, his early years in Christian music, and of course "Rise Again". Linda, his wife of more than 53 years, has been by Dallas' side through their ministry career, which continues today. They remain active in their church in Texas. Over the course of Dallas’ career, he has released 34 albums, received 5 Dove Awards, and was inducted into the Gospel Music Association’s Hall of Fame in 2012.
