Kelly is a leader's leader. God used him to envision the planting of Four Corners Community Church. Kelly firmly led through complex leadership issues with a God-honoring grace and elegance that anointed the start of the church in 2010, and, continues to be a blessing as FCCC continues to develop.
Kelly has been a gift to me. His thoughtful and thorough help - not just trite advice - has made a big impact on my ministry, particularly in leadership development and culture change. He has offered wise words, as well as walked with me through those processes.
Kelly has been an invaluable resource to me. I've experienced his care in larger ministry questions, as well as personal questions. I recommend him because he speaks with joyful authenticity, and you don't get a repackaged version of someone else's ideas. His heart is to care for people, under the leading of the Holy Spirit.
From my first days in ministry, Kelly has been a mentor and guide. Whether in setting goals, prioritizing tasks, or dealing with conflict, Kelly has always been one of the first people I go to for advice. Much of how I pastor today is a result of learning from Kelly.
I give Kelly my highest recommendation. As a leader, Kelly knows how to create a captivating vision, align others to the vision and execute on the vision. He gets things done! As a person, Kelly is caring, discerning and gives solid guidance based on Scripture.
I hired Kelly over 20 years ago, and served as a mentor to him for some time. But Kelly truly is one of those people who has grown to become the mentor. In recent years, his listening ear, practical wisdom and Biblical guidance have been incredibly beneficial for me.
I'll never forget Kelly's phone call. After only two months in the Dominican Republic, we were discouraged and shared our struggles with a few folks by email. Kelly immediately called. He helped us get through those first few months in a new culture, and has strengthened us for service throughout the journey.
Kelly is an incredibly humble, gracious, strong pastor and leader. I have seen him successfully guide his church through many challenges. He handled each in a very biblical manner with grace, strength, and love. I have the highest respect for him.
