Worship Leader - Mitch Kelley

Mitch Kelly

Mitch Kelley is the worship leader at Fullness Christian Fellowship in Vestavia AL.  He also is involved in leading worship with the Birmingham Prayer Furnace. His heart is for day and night prayer. He says, “I have come to understand that the reason I breathe is to behold the beauty of Jesus Christ and to declare His worth… One of my personal life goals is to be able to call myself a ‘singing theologian’ fully equipped to pastor a generation to know the Lord.” He believes that God is just looking for a group of people that will agree with Him. He says, "Here I am.” Malachi 1:11, “‘For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same My name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto My name, and a pure offering: for My name shall be great among the heathen.’ saith the Lord of hosts.” (KJV)
