My name is Matt. OK, my formal title is Rev. Dr. Matthew L. Kelley, but if you insist on calling me that, we might not be friends. I’m a United Methodist pastor serving outside the local church for the first time in a long time. I manage LouieConnect.com for Family Scholar House in Louisville, Kentucky.
Much of my time is spent with my lovely wife, Jessica, who is a book editor (whose blog, Living Lighter, you should check out, as well), and our three kids- Kate, Claire, and Jonah.
I’m currently in a season of discernment about where God is calling me next, and trying to gain greater understanding about my purpose in this world. 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, so give me a holler and we’ll talk about what we can do together.
