Charlie Holley Ministries Inc.

Strength - Encouragement - Inspiration


Charlie Holley Ministries Inc is a 501(c)(3) organization founded by Charlie and Cassandra Holley four years after the tragic death of their thirteen-year-old son Torrell. While on his last day of basketball tryouts at school, Torrell suddenly collapsed from cardiac arrest and died moments later. The autopsy attributed the collapse to a rare heart condition called ARVD.


Christians at the time, Charlie, Cassandra, and Torrell’s younger sister Kiana, went through very difficult times. Depression, anger, guilt, and doubting their faith were the norm. As they struggled to find some sense of peace and understanding, Charlie and Cassandra began to notice others around them who were also struggling with various tragedies.  The ministry to help others through grief was birthed as "Charlie Holley Ministries Inc." 


They have visited many groups including Hospice, Compassionate Friends, Homicide Survivors, and many church groups, including several churches and groups in Montego Bay Jamaica. If you have a need for a grief speaker, conference speaker, or grief group speaker, please book the ministry using the website menus.
