Rev. Chris Kelly


At an early age Chris felt drawn to the God.  At the age of 12 he asked Jesus to be his Savior and Lord.  He continued to follow Jesus throughout his high school and college years, and while attending the Sedona Wesleyan Church sensed a strong call on his life to pursue full-time ministry.  


While attending Oklahoma Wesleyan University, he met and married his college sweetheart, (Rudonna), in July of 1981. Rudonna is a Registered Nurse, and he describes her not only as the joy of his life, but his best friend and ministry partner. 


Rudonna has strong leadership and teaching gifts, and has always served as the Women’s Ministry Leader of the churches they have led.  Recently she completed her Bachelor of Science in “Ministry & Leadership” at Oklahoma Wesleyan University.  She not only writes for two blogs, but teaches classes on emotional healing, leads bible studies and disciples women.  You can access Rudonna’s blog site at https://realsistersconnection.wordpress.com


The Kelly's have four grown children who are all serving the Lord faithfully in their own churches.  Matthew (31) is married to Brynn & has two children and lives in PA.  Jared (30) is married and lives with his wife Amanda in San Diego.  Rachel (27) is married to Chris, has two children and is living in WA. Ethan (21) is single and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.


Chris is passionate about people falling in love with Jesus and His Kingdom. In 35 years of pastoral ministry, the Kelly's have previously planted 3 churches together.  They are excited about what God is going to do in Orting through "Our Church".
