Senior Pastor

Kelly grew up in Grants Pass, Oregon and was introduced to Christ through the “home” church his family was a part of there. After high school he went straight to college at NCU in Eugene where he met his beautiful wife Heidi and they married in 1996. They have 3 amazing children, Seth, Hannah and Tristan (currently serving in the Marines). He enjoys all kinds of activities and interests from music as a guitar and hand drum player to woodworking and home improvement projects to being an avid outdoorsman where he also enjoys hunting and fishing. Kelly also serves on the board for the Mixteco Christian Fellowship missions organization and a committee for McKay Young Life Club. This is now his second time serving as a pastor at Calvary Chapel of Salem and he says it is truly a privilege and pleasure.

His personal goal and prayer for Calvary is the same as Paul found in his favorite scripture in Ephesians 3:16-19.
