History

Ultimate Escape was founded in 2004 by Steve and Holly Holladay.  It initially operated as a ministry overseen by the Friendly Avenue Church in Greensboro, NC where Steve had served for 6 years as a youth minister.

As Steve was pursuing his master's degree in counsleing at Regent University, Ultimate Escape was organized as a not-for-profit corporation in Virginia Beach, VA in March of 2005. 

In the fall of 2006, Ultimate Escape relocated to Nashville, TN where Steve Holladay began working with the Center for Relational Healing, providing life coaching services for adolescents dealing with sexual issues. 

In August of 2009, Ultimate Escape formed a partnership with the Greenville Oaks Church in Allen, TX and moved its operations to the Dallas metroplex.  At the end of 2016, Ultimate Escape relocated to north central Louisiana and began operating from an office provided by the WFR Church in West Monroe. In 2022, Ultimate Escape began a transition back to the Nashville area. That transition was completed in 2023. Ultimate Escape is currently based in Dickson, TN and continues to operate as a board-directed, not-for-profit corporation recognized by the IRS as 501(c)(3) public charity. 

Steve Holladay provides Ultimate Escape's pastoral counseling services in Dickson, TN.  Steve and Holly Holladay speak internationally at churches, schools and other organizations.  For information about the Ultimate Escape board, see the Board Members page.
