The Haven Portugal

Shoan & Michelle Holley

Shoan grew up in the very small town of Flatonia, Texas, and Michelle was born and raised in Austin, Texas. They met while attending university in Brownwood, Texas. Shoan has a Bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies and Michelle received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. Celebrating 25 year of marriage in January 2019, they are still deeply in love.  They have four fabulous children: Kambryn (23), Bryton (21), Keenan (17), and Annalyn (15) and a precious granddaughter, Aubrey.  Two of their children are here with them at the Haven, and their oldest son, daughter and granddaughter live in America.  Shoan has worked in the non-profit sector all of his career, with an emphasis on training in things of the heart.  The Holleys resided in Northeast Africa from 2004 – 2006.  Having walked through difficult circumstances, they have experience in holding onto peace in hard times.  They are very excited to help, serve and bless the guests who come to The Haven.
