Matt Kelley's Bio
Matthew J. Kelley grew up in a fully functional, Christian home, the son of a Baptist preacher. However, as a teenager, he began to make some bad choices that would begin a chain of events that caused life to become difficult in the latter years. Matt left everyone and everything he knew was good and began making poor choices in all areas of his life. Bad relationships, bad friends, drugs, alcohol and all that goes along with the "party" lifestyle became his norm.

After 14 years of living this lifestyle, addicted and lost in life, Matt decided one day to return to church. On June 14th, 1998, God did a miracle in his life and Matt has been serving God ever since.

He started out in youth ministry, then became pastor of a couple of small churches in Sumter County and was the pastor of Christian Valley Baptist Church for 15 years. He has been involved with Addiction Counsel at a regional Detox center for the past several years.

In August 2016, Matt began to feel God open up doors for a new ministry of Prevention to Middle and High School aged students and named it "Equip Ministries." God would continue to open doors and provide for this new ministry to become a full-time position. So, stepping out in faith, Matt and his wife Lydia, resigned from the pastorate and as of January 01, 2017 became full time missionaries in the field of student ministry.

Matt spoke at our Wild Game Dinner back in 2018 and we are excited to have him back with us again this time in 2020!
