Minister Ray Kelley
W. Ray Kelley, EdD

I was born and reared in Grayson, Kentucky, where my parents were professors at Kentucky Christian College. I received a Bachelor’s Degree from Kentucky Christian University, Masters of Arts from Morehead State University, Morehead, KY; and Doctor of Education from Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Before coming to FCCI, I was Pastor of the Live Oak Christian Church, Live Oak, FL, for six years. Prior to that I was Vice President for Academic Affairs at Dallas Christian College for 5 years, President of Winston-Salem Bible College, Winston-Salem, NC for fifteen years, and held various positions at Mid-South Christian College, Senatobia, MS, for eight years. In addition to positions in Christian education, I was Director of Development at a Christian nursing home, St. Louis, MO, and Manager of Howell’s Mill Christian Assembly, Ona, WV. I have also held interim and weekend ministries in Missouri, Mississippi, West Virginia and Alabama.

Throughout the years, I have had numerous articles published in the Christian Standard, Lookout, Restoration Herald, and Horizon Magazine. I have also conducted workshops at the North American Christian Convention, National Missionary Convention, and various state and local conventions.

My wife, Shirley, serves as Music Director at FCCI and ministers in other areas as the Lord leads. We have two married children and seven grandchildren.
