Dr. Kelly’s over 30 years of work as an equipping evangelist, church planter/consultant and his teaching career at various institutions of Higher Education (Trinity Bible College, Fuller Seminary, Bethany University, Southeastern University, and Evangel U/AGTS) are all a part of his life’s ambition “to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the whole Body of Christ may be built up … and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (Eph. 4:11-13).
