Rev. Christine Powell Kellett

As a native South Carolinian, I am thrilled to be back home! I grew up in Greenwood, went to Furman University for my undergraduate, and then married a true Greenvillian (Michael). We have three wonderful children (West, Mattie, and Marian) who keep us on our toes! I have my M.Div in Christian Education from the Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond (BTSR). I have also written a number of bible study series, Sunday school curriculums, and articles for congregations and publishing houses. My love and passion for ministry is with children and their families, and I believe that the most important role to which God has called us to is to be shepherds, guiding children on their journey to being disciples. In my free time, I love to sing, as well as spending time watching sports and being outside, enjoying time with the ones I love the most.
