My name is Matt. OK, my formal title is Rev. Dr. Matthew L. Kelley, but if you call me that we might not be friends. I’m a United Methodist pastor serving Christ United Methodist Church in Franklin, TN. Much of my time is spent with my lovely wife, Jessica, who is a book editor, and our three kids- Kate, Claire, and Jonah. This blog shares my thoughts on life, faith, theology, etc. Comments and differing opinions are encouraged as long as the discourse is civil.

I’m available for freelance writing, speaking, and teaching engagements. For writing samples, see my author page on Ministry Matters. For speaking samples, see the sermon archives on Christ UMC’s website, or some video sermons on You Tube. You can also view my current CV here- MatthewLKelleyCV.

I work for cheap, but not for free.
