Kelley Ellis

Children's Ministry Director
Kelley grew up in Houston, where she met her husband, Adam. They connected while volunteering together with the ministry of Young Life and were married in 2008. Kelley was a high school math teacher and continued with Young Life until she and Adam moved to Connecticut where their two boys, Micah (9) and Elijah (7), were born. It was during that time when Kelley would come to love the ministry of CBS (Community Bible Study) and when she would begin serving in MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). After moving back to Houston for Adam’s job, Kelley began to serve in Community Bible Study and was soon given the opportunity to serve as Associate Children’s Director. She and Adam also added a little girl named Hannah (4) to their family!

Kelley is passionate about Children’s Ministry and excited to shower the love of Jesus on the children and families of Advent Houston. She has always felt the call to minister to kids right where they are and feels that there is nothing better than seeing them embrace Jesus in their own hearts. From teaching, to ministry, to her own home, she hopes to point kids to God’s truth and great love for them. Now Kelley cannot wait to be a part of what God is doing in the University and Med Center with Advent Houston!
