Kelly serves as our kids pastor at the Bentonville campus. In teaching the kids and leading a team of volunteers, she firmly believes that there is no “Holy Spirit Jr.” and is passionate about helping kids learn to walk with and hear from God at an early age. Her husband, Clay, can be found serving with her most Sundays in Keypoint Kids.
Growing up, Kelly lived in many different places before her family eventually settled in Northwest Arkansas in her high school years. After high school, she attended Arkansas Tech University and graduated with two degrees, one in communications and the other in sociology.
Kelly has a warm and vibrant personality and always makes situations feel a little more fun and lively. She will typically have a list of good questions to spark conversation or keep it going, and she can make anyone feel truly known and understood. Her passions include travel, hiking, swimming, and “hammocking”—anything outdoors! She has visited five of the seven continents and plans to visit the remaining two over the next few years.
