Pastor of New Life – Jimmy Kelley

I was born and raised in an Apostolic home.  My dad did not attend church but was a God-fearing, Bible-quoting man.  My mom was, and is, a faithful saint that serves Jesus Christ first and foremost.  I have had the privilege of pastoring New Life since 2010. On March 15, 1997, I married the best woman in the world, Karen. 

Karen and I reside in Tullahoma and have three wonderful children: daughter Brooklyn, son Trey and daughter-in-law Denae.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from MTSU with a focus in accounting.  I work for GRA as their CFO while volunteering at New Life as their Lead Pastor.
