Director of Children & Youth Ministries
Ben Kelly is a new Richmonder and a first-year student at Union Presbyterian Seminary. He and his wife, Sophie, (and cat Oliver) recently moved from Oakhurst, CA in the Sierra mountains just south of Yosemite! They live next to the UPSem campus in Ginter Park. Ben has a background in Christian camping and children’s ministry, and he has a passion for making meaningful spaces for children and incorporating them into the everyday mission of the church. When he isn’t studying for class, he’s likely reading a new novel or listening to one of the countless podcasts in his queue. He loves hikes, trivia games and, ever since his year in the UK, a robust cup of English Breakfast tea (any time of day).
