Who is Kelly?

Kelly does not walk alone. He was raised in a small town in Eastern Washington in a family with a younger sister and brother whom he loves. Memories are filled with strong values reflecting; family, sports, work ethic, and the simplicity of life. Years were spent in the fields hauling hay, romping around town, and teaching himself how to write music. He came to faith at a basketball camp, NBC, and gives thanks to the many Sunday School teachers in this small town who taught the lessons of Christ. After college, he began a career in teaching and coaching. He soon married his wife, Kathy, and have been together for over 33 years. They have three children, boy-girl-boy. Their daughter passed away in 1994. While raising their two sons, he ventured into a ministry to reach the lost, lonely and sick with music and God's Word. Their home church, Mountain View Community Church (C&MA) came alongside and brought him up as a lay leader in the congregation going towards his ordination as an ordained pastor. Likewise, strong support was given to him from Bill Tate, HCMA chaplain, to begin his chaplain training. Kelly was certicified as a pastoral counselor with the American Association of Christian Counselor ( AACC) and has many opportunities to counsel hurting people. Their oldest, Brad, is happily married to Heidi and given birth to second granddaughter. They too have a passion to help hurting people and serve at their home church. Our youngest, Jacob, has graduated from high school and is now seeking his place where the Lord is guiding him. We are continually humbled and challenged by the reality of God in our lives. We pray this simple testimony gives hope to you.

But take hope! I have power over the world!”
