Associate Children's Minister Boone Campus
No one appreciates goofiness, creativity, make believe, and randomly bursting into songs quite like children do, which is why Kelly has found her calling in Children’s Ministry. She grew up aspiring to inspire others through meaningful work on stage (because one can only be a Disney princess if they are born into the royal role), but found her true passion as she began to volunteer in children’s ministry. It was there that Kelly discovered that life is so much better when you’re serving others.
Kelly can be found serving through her work with the Children’s Ministry, through baking for anyone and everyone who has a sweet tooth, and for sending words of encouragement to others when they come across her mind. It is her goal to leave the world a little better than how she found it, by helping to mold strong, kind, well-rounded productive members of Christ’s kingdom – one child at a time. When she’s not roaming the halls of Immanuel, Kelly is spending time with her family, baking, reading, working her Thirty-One Gifts business, or re-watching Grey’s Anatomy from start to finish.
