I have lived right here in the beautiful community of Kelleytown my entire life. I married my high school sweetheart Phillip in 2006. We joined KBC in May of 2007 and this church immediately became my family. The Lord blessed us with two rambunctious boys, Boyd and Cooper. My boys consider this their second home and have worn paths running down the hallways of this church.
I love children and have spent the last 10 years as a preschool teacher. In 2017, I felt the Lord call me into seminary and I am currently completing a degree in Children’s Ministry at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. I am excited and honored to be serving the children and their families here at Kelleytown Baptist Church. To God alone be the Glory!!

In his spare time he enjoys reading, writing, watching The Office, relaxing with video games and playing board games with friends. Spencer is very excited for the future of Kelleytown and can't wait to see all that the Lord does through the student ministry.
I have called Hartsville “home” my entire life. I have been married to my best friend, Stewart, for eleven years. The Lord has blessed us with three healthy, beautiful babies named Laney Rae, Tate & Peyton. We are members of Lakeview Baptist Church and I am so grateful to be able to expand my church family to the members of Kelleytown also! I look forward to serving the Lord everyday through my role as the Ministry Assistant at Kelleytown.
The Lord placed the call of serving children on my life many years ago and I am so very thankful for that. I have been teaching preschool for 20 years. My desire is that children will grow to love the Lord and learn academics and fun things along the way. I am married and have two beautiful teenagers. God has blessed me tremendously with a wonderful and loving family. We are also thankful to be a part of such a wonderful church family.
