Education: Taylor University (BA) & Indiana Wesleyan (Masters)
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Relax... own your sermons enough to get your nose out of the notes and just share clearly one point.
Family: Laura (Davis) Kelley & daughter Evelyn.
What my parents think of my sermons: Not sure.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She loves them. She tries to convince me that they are the best preaching she’s ever sat under (bias?).
Best advice given to me about preaching: Keep it simple - JUST ONE POINT!
Books that have had an impact: Andy Stanley’s Communicating for a Change. Greg’s Stier’s material on a simple way to share the GOSPEL narrative through the Bible.
Hobbies: Fishing, biking, playing with daughter.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: the Gospel.
Something funny that happened while preaching: After getting my reviews back from a sermon I preached in an undergrad preaching class my professor wrote "check your fly." Apparently I did the entire sermon with my fly open and nobody bothered to let me know.
What I want on my tombstone: He lived until he died.
