A Fun Picture of Pastor
Kelly Family Picture

Pastor Brian Kelly, and his wife, Kim, have been married for 25 years, and homeschool their seven children. In the picture they are from left to right, Danuel (20), Ethan (23) Peter (14), Joshua (6), Abby (18), Hannah (22) and Timothy (19).

Brian grew up in Canton, Ohio. He came to faith in Christ at 14, and knew God's call upon him for pastoral ministry shortly after. He studied for ministry at Appalachian Bible College in Beckley, WV. It was there that he met Kim. She grew up in a pastor's home, and came to faith in Christ at 5 years old. Her passion throughout life has been to be a pastor's wife and a mother. She and Brian both graduated from Appalachian Bible College in 1999 and were married that summer. Brian later attended Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary in Lansdale, PA and earned a Masters in Theological Studies.

He has been the pastor of Mendota Bible Church since 2013.
