Kelley came to Christ in 1980 as a freshman in college and completed her education at Fresno State University in California.
In 1990 Kelley joined staff with The Navigators and helped open a ministry among military personnel and nationals in Zweibruecken, Germany. In 2001 she joined the German Navigator staff team to lead a campus ministry in Bonn, where she invested in students and women for ten years.
Since 2012 Kelley has been a part of the People Resources Team providing “help, hope and healing” to Navigator staff around the world. Kelley loves walking alongside Navigator staff to help them gain freedom and health so the Gospel flows freely through them.
“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.”
